This is the last book in the series, the conclusion. For my part, I thought these last few books seemed to mark a return to the action/adventure feel we had in earlier books like Temple of the Winds. Then the books began to get bogged down with philosophy [if I have to hear about magic and art one more time...] No matter what the author says, his books ARE influenced by Objectivism - not in a subtle way that would have been interesting, but in a knock on the head with a sludge hammer way.
Parts of Confessor are treated with this as well, but I already made my peace with it and just skimmed until I got back into the story.
For those of you who have read the other books, it is worth reading this book to find out the ending. This could have been the most awful there ever was, but I still would have read it to find out the fate of Richard and Kahlan.
The only thing that really bothered me was how parts of the ending was left open ended, and made it seem like it could lead the way for a sequel with Richard and Kahlan. Apparently not...which really disappointed me, especially when what we got instead was The Law of Nines. Shudder.
