Phantom

by Terry Goodkind

Key Porter Books | July 18, 2006 | Hardcover

Phantom is rated 4 out of 5 by 16.

On the day she awoke remembering nothing but her name, Kahlan Amnell became the most dangerous woman alive. For everyone else, that was the day that the world began to end.

As her husband, Richard, desperately searches for his beloved, whom only he remembers, he knows that if she doesn't soon discover who she really is, she will unwittingly become the instrument that will unleash annihilation. But Kahlan learns that if she ever were to unlock the truth of her lost identity, then evil itself would finally possess her, body and soul.

If she is to survive in a murky world of deception and betrayal, where life is not only cheap but fleeting, Kahlan must find out why she is such a central figure in the war-torn world swirling around her. What she uncovers are secrets darker than she could ever have imagined.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from We get it already! I started out as a big fan of the Sword of Truth books. But now Terry Goodkind is just dragging them out in as many books as possible to make a buck. Phantom was the most repetitive book I have ever read! If we cut out all the pages where he says the same thing over and over, this book could have been summed up in 250 pages instead of 673. If the author could get back to the story line, it would be great.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Boring and long winded I picked this up in $4.99 bin and I wish I left it there. I am through first two thirds of the book and I will see it to the end because of the plot. the tiny little bit of plot that is there, it is interesting and I want to see how it ends. The problem with book are endless monologues, repeating the same thing over and over at all times. It goes something like this: Richard: I must hurry. Someone: but, ... Richard: I am glad you asked, the difference between good end evil is ... (20 pages later) Richard: ... so, i must hurry. Someone: *sneezes Richard: Bless you, the difference between good end evil is ... (20 pages later) ... and so on. At this point I would not be surprised if Richard would find himself falling of the cliff and finding the time during the fall to tell me again what is the difference between good evil, what are personal responsibility and free will and what are reasons for guerrilla warfare - just in case if I did not get it first 20 times he went over it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing This book is absolutely fantastic, as you read it you will be drawn into the story by the author, it is a sequal to chain fire, another fantasic book in the Sword of Truth novels, and it is one of the most popular books in the world. It is truly an inspiration to anyone who wants to right or even who loves fantacy, and it will keep you on the edge of your seat from page 1 to page 673. This is truly a work of art that is worth buying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from He's back on track! I loved the first 6 books of the sword of truth series. The 7th and 8th book were hard to get into and the 9th book was frustrating for people who have already read the first 8 books, because its pretty much a review of the whole series. But finally after 3 books Terry Goodkind is back on track! I loved this one so much, I had it read in two days, could not put it down! It only makes me want to wish for the last book now....too bad there is only one book left to read, I'll miss Richard and Kahlan's adventures. Jagang is more ruthless then ever, Kahlan can't remember anything and Richard has his own plans and ideas, which make this book hard to put down. I recommend this to all the sword of truth fans out there and to anyone who would like a good read. My advice is to read all 9 first before you attempt this one. I just hope the last book is as good if not better then this one!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from worth your time and more as always Goodkind keeps the story going. He has build up the story so well that I am hoping the next comes out real soon. I love how he will refer to things that have happen in the first book that at that time did not seem to have any meaning. I just couldn't put the book down, even when I was yawning in bed at midnight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Series I haven't read Phantom yet but all I can say is that I've been anxiously awaiting it, to see how the story continues from Chainfire. All I can say that this is an absolutely amazing author, you never know what to expect from one book to another. He keeps you wondering all the time about what kind of trouble Richard will get himself into. If you're a fan of fantasy books you've got to read Terry Goodkind, it's really worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good I have to say that compared to the last few books that Goodkind has written, this one really picked up. It does not compare with the first three books of the series, but it is an improvement. If you lost faith in the middle books like i did, i would suggest that you read this one to restore it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Back on track I was reading some very disappointed reviews of this book, and while I agree with some that say the first four books were better, this one seemed to pick up about 200 pages in and had me intrigued again. If you are a fan of Goodkind you will like this one, if you are new to the series stick to the first few and forget about the rest, your life will still have meaning.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This series should have ended at book 4 I have come to the conclusion that Terry Goodkind and Robert Jordan are the same people, since they're writing very similar books...with the exception that the RJ books actually got better again after a few really bad books. These books keep getting worse and the story doesn't even progress. I stopped reading these after book 5 (which was so immemorable I can't remember the name) and only tried them again after the urging of a friend who said they got better. I will never be able to replace the time I lost to reading these. If you're looking for a good series that's way too many books long, try the RJ books instead. At least stuff happens in that series, instead of it being just bland dialogue between dull characters.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing Don't let the fans fool you cuz this book dies. Stringing out a series for cash is all too obvious here. We've been waiting for a war for 5 books now. Amazing how the huge armies can't find each other. Read the dialogue...its embarrasing. Some of the characters sound stupid. Redundant sentences. No action. No suspense. New plot lines hastily created to attempt to tie in old ones. Like a book called, Yanklees Yarns! Even the name evokes desperation. The first book was brilliant. Crisp writing, great characters. Phantom is just an excuse to pick your pocket to get you again next year. This better end cuz its getting boring!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What A Read During the entire day and a half that it took me to read this book, I was filled with excitment. The changes Goodking made to the title characters was awsome. Some things were answered while new twists took place. I cannot wait for the conclusion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even the Keeper would love it Dammit! I'm done the book already...I guess I'll have to read the entire series for the THIRD time before the big epic conclusion. Terry has done it again with his world turned upside-down. Using reference from real life issues, he creates a gripping story that is hammered into you so hard that you can't stop reading. The characters he has created have inspired me. I think there is a little bit of Richard and Kahlan in all of us...The sane ones I mean

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awsome i have been waiting years for Phantom to come out and I loved the book, Terry Goodkind is an AMAZING author. I just really miss Richard and Kahlan together, its been 2 books now since they were seperated. I will miss reading the Sword of Truth series once it ends, yet at the same time i cant wait for it to end, i just want answers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Yet again Terry Goodkind has captivated my attention - and I have to wait until 2008 for the conclusion! (sigh!) Terry Goodkind has managed to express some of the fears of today within the fiction of his series - zealots so convinced of their righteousness that human life is a casualty of war – and that conquest is mandatory – we must all submit or die. I have enjoyed the twists of magic, Zed has been a favourite through out this series, I can picture him and would enjoy meeting him! Never read Terry Goodkind pick up Wizard's First Rule(WFR) and begin the adventure - And reader, Terry Goodkind has agreed to allow this series to be brought to television – Yes, WFR will be made into a miniseries with the director of Spiderman.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A satisfying, succulent read Phantom is the novel that fans of TSoT series have been missing for several volumes. There is no dread that "it's all a dream" or that Mr Goodkind started a new series of novels but forgot to change the name. This novel captures all of the eye-opening passion and delightful fantasy which drew people in in WFR, coupled with the merit of having stood the test the time as SoTF (but without the crazy chicken....). All themes which could define the series to date are rolled into this one piece, making it a true feast for fans of the series. This book was not one to put down, and, after devouring it non-stop cover-to-cover, my only regret is that the novel is over, and that there will only be one more volume that could carry the same passion and satisfaction. An absolute delight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible! Phantom is an amazing book, far better then it's previous book Chainfire and Pillars of Creation. This book is incredible with a lot of suspense and is as wonderful as the other Terry Goodkind books. Again Goodkind does a wonderful job in his writing, giving a very rich and detailed world with a wonderful storyline.
