I'm not going to rate this book.
I read the first twenty or thirty books in the series (really? there weren't that many? it sure seemed like it.), and finally took a break because I hated waiting for the next volume to come out. Maybe I took too long a break, because when I picked this one up, first of all it seemed that I'd missed a volume (I'm still not sure if I did), and second - I realized I couldn't care less. I read about 4 pages and realized I no longer cared about any of the characters, what they did, and whether they ever made their world safe for Good.
The inside cover says it's "A Richard and Kahlan novel". What a surprise! Until last month, there weren't any other kinds of Goodkind novel.
