OK, I AM ONLY HALF DONE WITH THIS BOOK, BUT I THINK IT GOES ALOT SLOWER THAN THE OTHERS DID. I AM ALSO REALLY AGITATED AT THE WAY KAHLAN AND RICHARD ALWAYS HAVE SOME PROBLEM GOING ON. LIKE WITH THE CHICKEN IN THIS ONE, I MEAN COME ON, RICHARD KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING, WHY IS KAHLAN BEING SO..STUCK UP ABOUT IT. ANYWAY, THIS ONE IS STILL REALKLY GOOD, BUT I LIKED THE FIRST 3 BETTER

I want to say my fav. person from the books is Cara. I even named my little black cat cara. She is by far the best person in the story. I can't wait till I get the new book so I knw what else happened to Cara. I have found out I like the Mord-Siths best. They are way cool.

This is such a great series, and the Soul of fire was great. However he took a little bit of a step on a couple of things. One was the conflict between Richard and the mountian it was a little fast and was not explained very well. He left some parts out on how he knew that the old wizard was there and he controlled the chimes. the other was that it was just magic that Richard use to know when kathlen was near. He should have known. that was just bad the way that turned out. I guess he had to to start the next story. and what a way to leave you hanging.

saying Terry Goodkind's books are just awesome would be a huge understatement. Goodkind is my #1 favorite author, but I was somewhat dissapointed by Soul of the Fire. It just went so much slower than the other novels, and in several places it got to the point that I had to set it down and tell myself I'd try again later because I was so angry at the slowness of it. I don't think Goodkind should have spend so much time dragging out the events in Anderith, especially those of Fitch when he was just going to get killed anyway. As nessisary as it is to have secondary characters to understand the people of Anderith, I think Goodkind streched it out a little too far. The dissipoitment of the fifth book has only made me more anxious for the sixth.

well what can i say but terry good kind is one exceptonal author that has had me on the edge of my seat flipping pages for hours. the soul of the fire was very trying. goodkind has a way of letting reality take hold in fantasy that keeps your mind whirling. although some of the new characters introduced here were not as good as the previous books it was still a riviting sequal to temple of the winds. i was so glad to see fitch go i knew when he was introduced he would not last long. in this book goodkind used a technique i call seprate storys. the whole book would keep flipping from the main characters to the lesser characters. this can make you want to flip ahead to see what the main characters are doing and it keeps you reading. one other author i enjoy also does this cj Cherryh it keeps the story moving and keeps it interesting.the way goodkind ended soul of the fire was a very dark ending leaving much room for doubt i finished reading it and just kept saying to myself no it cant end that way. now i cant wait for the next in the series it is coming soon and i am uneasey what will befall richard and khalan in this sequal. soul of the fire ended with richard giving up and i just could not belive that.
out of all the new characters introduced dalton campbell was one of the best i think. and i loved what he did at the end. he was quite a character. i mean he has khalan beat to death nearly and then kills his own wife the minister and his wife quite a character.
overall it was a great book and i cant wait for the next
