Loved this book read it almost non stop was a great read. Kahlan,Nicci,and Cara rocked this book. I love it when Kahlan takes over the troops she is the best at leading in the field by far. Nicci was awesome and such a complex character full of mystery and suspense. Cara is so loyal and badass just now finding feeling along with it. Wow just wow.
If you were a true Mord Sith you would follow Richard.
Have to agree, this is a great book. Best in the series so far.

I found a hard back for 7 dollars and had to buy it.
I'm new to this forum but I've been reading you all for weeks now. Each time I would finish a book, I would come and read the section devoted to it. This is my first reading of the series.
I finished Faith of the Fallen just last night. Actually I had decided to read the last 100 pages today so last night, I went to bed and switched off the light...only to switch it on a moment later, to take my book back and finish it (isn't this called addiction ?).
I have not recovered from the book. I guess I never will (not that I am complaining though). The 5 first books had already been emotionally exhausting and draining. This one had no different impact on me.
To tell you the truth, I need a break or else my heart is gonna give up. That's why I'm gonna start with Debt of Bones as soon as I will have posted this message. I need to be away from Richard and Kahlan sufferings and partings and heartbreaks because it's really, really too difficult for me to endure more. I love them so much. But as I still want to be linked to them, Zedd's story will do the job. I will then re-read my most preferred moments in the 6 first books.
Only then will I be able to continue my journey with Pillars of Creation.
I have loved this book. I have loved to discover Nicci's character. So complex. I am so glad that Richard has saved her (in more ways than one.)
I have hated the order-thing. It kind of reminded me how things were going on in the former USSR for example. People lining for food, an overpowerful milicia dictating insane rules, the torture...
Kahlan the warrior was stunning. I expected no less from her. Cara was just...Cara. Her character is gaining so much strength. She's not anymore a killing machine only. She's also the friend, the woman... The relationship building between the two women is a beautiful and a strong one.
I wish I could say more but I need to digest it all first (and as a french-native speaker, I lack words to express all what I'd love to express).
I cannot say that FotF is my fav book of the series. I have not fav one (yet?). I have loved SotF with the same intensity even with the whole Ander-Haken thing (I know many of you were kind of bored with it). I guess that when Richard and Kahlan (and Cara) are involved, no matter what amount of them we may have, I'm carried along. As long as the story revolves around them...
One thing about Nicci though : Am I the only one who thinks that if Nicci was imune to Jaggang, it was (perhaps) because her tall-blond-blue-eyed Dad was a pure D'Haran and as such was protected from dream walkers thanks to Ulric's magic ? But then why wasn't Nicci's mind always protected from Jaggang (remember that scene at the beginning of the book which ends in her roasting Kadar. Jaggang does get in her mind) ? What if her (evil) mother was not from D'hara ? Nicci is thus not pure-blood like her father so the protection isn't 100% "bulletproof"
But then, what I do not understand is how she managed to get totally rid of Jaggang at some point. Because she loved Richard ? That doesn't make sense. She has to be loyal to him which she is not.
Any guess ?
NB : Nicci's (evil) mother was gifted. Why hadn't she been taken to the palace of the prophets ?

just finished this book and it was great, but then again thats on par for the series. id have to say it is one of my favorites, cant say singular favorite cause i think i have multiple favorites.
first off the i loved the way the story started with them in the mountains training and healing. gave you real insight into richards thoughts and way he wanted things to be with them. especially the part that i have read that others liked when he made kahlan get up to get the water and they were waiting outside for her.
then the entire army and fighting scenes, having kahlan, zedd, cara, adie, warren, verna and all of the sisters and army back together, just having almost the whole gang back together was awesome. i definitely liked zedd and warren as a one two punch fighting the order. the wedding was great though i was truthfully expecting something to happen to either warren or verna right before then, like an assassin or something, just to really strike at them and demoralize them. thankfully nothing happened and they got to be together for a while, but still somehow i knew something would happen to one of them by the end of the book.
the richard and nicci trip i also liked. i like nicci a lot, when she is good and bad. just her behavior in the beginning being cold and ruthless and then starting to change, like everyone does, when they are with richard for a long time. just her changing so that after sucha long time together she actually started to have affection for him and care about him even though he was the exact opposite of everything she knew and beleived in. i really was actually hoping that he would start to be nicer to her, i know that she had him as a prisoner because of kahlan but never the less, after she started to care for him i had hoped he would atleast be kind of nice to her. not completely submit to her and love her, but still not treat her like a she was just his captor. and of course i loved the way richard made life better and made all those new freinds in victor and ishaq, but thats just richard.
and of course the ending was great with all of them finally meeting up and helping each other and being civil with each other. the way the statue helped nicci finally see what it was that she needed to understand and i am anxious to see if she stays on their side and helps them out more.

also i amazed at how nice and summed up the book was when it ended, i didnt think it seemed like how goodkind writes but i kind off liked the way it ended.
