No, he has to go on and describe what a genius he is for giving Jagang such a fitting end at great length. At the Palace, Nathan assumes Richard is dead and, acting on Richard’s instructions, accepts Jagang’s terms of surrender, which include surrendering Nicci to Jagang and giving the Order’s Sisters access to the Garden of Life in order to open the boxes. As with the previous books in the series, I found myself completely riveted for the last two hundred and fifty pages or so Debt of Bones by Terry Goodkind.
I don’t want to make this sound like it was like pulling teeth, but it was certainly like having lead boots. Because, honestly, I feel like I’m doing the exact same thing Goodkind is in bringing it up so often. Another one that started out well and sucked me in! A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creationson the part of the author or publisher. Chase now a Warden of the Keep and his family have also moved into the Keep, as have Adie and Friedrich, who are now a mated pair.
Pillars of Creation, The. Most notably, whenever Confessors made love with someone that caused a Confessor to enjoy great physical ecstasy, the Confessor lost her ability to control her power.
Everything after Confessor is a boring chore to read, and no one should ever even attempt to do so, in my opinion. Goodkind leaves no room for misinterpretation when it comes to this. The series though somewhat slow paced at times is well worth the effort of sticking around to see things through.

Both Richard and Ulicia are told that the time to open the Boxes has been reset one year from when Nicci put named Richard a player the first day of Winter.
She was being wilfully blind, seeing only what she wanted to see.
It really feels far too much like Goodkind taking a victory lap, and giving everyone in the goodkijd the finger as he jogs by. Richard and Nicci helped by Adie go back to the Palace through the catacombs, helped by the fact that Nathan and Cara are suspicious and are investigating the missing Ann and Nicci.
It just felt like such a cop out, I was angry about it for months. Confessors, instead, would pick mates for procreation purposes while remaining emotionally close to their true soul mate. The last bastion of safety for cobfessor is under siege by an enormous and threatening army, Richard has lost his powers, the Boxes of Orden are in play, and he has one year to find the way, Kahlan’s fate is hanging in the balance as well.
