Philip Warner (1914-2000) enlisted in the Royal Corps of Signals after graduating from St Catherine's . Although I did like this book I think this book spent too much time explaining things that he should have been explaining over the course of time in previous books.

Philip Warner (1914-2000) enlisted in the Royal Corps of Signals after graduating from St Catherine's, Cambridge in 1939. He fought in Malaya and spent 1,100 days as 'a guest of the Emperor' in Changi and on the Railway of Death, an experience he never discussed.

Philip Warner was an outstanding military historian, and for the last 13 years The Daily Telegraph's peerless Army obituarist. Indeed, he played a vital role in setting the standard for the modern Telegraph obituary. He had a relish for the piquant detail and an understanding that a good story should never be overdressed. Warner's direct, Philip Warner was an outstanding military historian, and for the last 13 years The Daily Telegraph's peerless Army obituarist.

PHANTOM was - and still is - one of the most secret but most effective of the wartime special regiments. It was formed in 1939 with the mission of finding out exactly where all the Allied forward positions were - a task which required linguistic ability, unlimited tact, and radio expertise. After Dunkirk its squadrons at first kept an eye on all invasion points, before deploying to Greece, and to the Middle East. An indispensable direct communication link between the forward patrols and command headquarters, it operated in Italy, Sicily, Austria, France, Belgium, Holland and Germany. Phantom was at Dieppe with the Commandos, in France with the SAS, at Arnhem with Airborne and in Germany until the surrender. PHANTOM members were as varied and colorful as its tasks. Among its member were two Privy Councillors, three life peers, five hereditary peers, the Master of a Cambridge college, three professors, a famous actor-playwright, a film star, a famous sculptor, a Law Lord, a steward of the Jockey Club, a Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police and numerous authors and journalists. As this fascinating history shows, PHANTOM was so successful in its role of tracking both allied and enemy movements and relaying vital information direct to commanders that it became hugely respected and yet retained its aura of mystery.

Terry Goodkind is a master story teller. Although he does repeat certain phrases or traits about his characters it's always at a place in the story that needs so I don't forget! His grammar is sometimes hard to put up with and he words things very simply but that's part of his charm. Simple but deep characters. Plot twists are his masterpiece even though you know things will all be well - eventually. Love this author. Only one other author draws me in like this and that is Margaret Weiss of the Dragon Lance series long ago. I love fantasy - so does Terry. He draws me right out of this world and into his with the "gang" Zedd, Richard, Verna, Nicci (I adore), Kahlan, Cara, Nathan and Ann - and so many more. Thank you Mr. Goodkind for years of pleasure.

I have enjoyed all of the stories so far but I sincerely WISH since we are paying $9.99 for each Ebook that the editing were better! I've just gotten to a part where they're talking about the "Throne" in Galea and it's spelled THROWN. The earlier books were worse with double words or phrases, etc. I also wish they would figure out the difference between "ensure" and "insure" (the latter seems to be the only way this term is used and it's used a lot). All of this takes you out of the story as you're reading it.

All that being said, the story is a good one or I wouldn't have dealt with all of this to come this far in the series.

Author - get a better editor! (2 stars off for that).

Although I did like this book I think this book spent too much time explaining things that he should have been explaining over the course of time in previous books. I have read several other reviews and kind of agree that he got a little too crazy with using the word phantoms throughout the book. I did like how he is now getting to a point where he feels he has to explain in depth more about his world of magic, and how it works. Again I don't feel like this was his best book I feel like he spent to much time trying to explain things through conversations between characters and not enough time furthering the story. I still cant believe that Richard goes into Jagang's main camp and not one person from the old world recognizes him. Not one person questions the fact that he kills like 30 people by himself with a sword, instead they think he would be a good addition to their jala team. Its just to convienient for me lastly the fact that Jagang is so stupid to think when Kahlahn gets her memory back that he could even touch her is beyond me. These characters that terry spent so much time convincing us are intelligent sometimes do the stupidest things ever.

I don't think that I've ever read a book where the author intentionally tried to use the title of his book throughout the text. The first time it was kind-of natural and makes you grin a little that he managed to do so. After the fifth or sixth time it became aggravating and annoying to see him trying so hard. As usual, there were still a few small grammar mistakes such as thrown for throne in the book which is also aggravating. I found that Goodkind was more anti-religion in this book than he had been in any of the others, not that he's been favorable in the past. I continue to be irritated by him just throwing his view out there so clearly in a fiction novel. If I wanted to read intentional allegory and commentary on social events, I would do so but I don't enjoy it in my fiction.

The story itself was like most of the other book's story lines. There's a desperate struggle for Richard and Kahlan to be together but everything is conspiring against them with incredible odds of it ever happening. There are a few interesting things in this book about how spells work and such but for the most part it seems to only be more of the same struggles that the rest of the series has presented. There are better fantasy series out that with more varied plots and more realistic writing. I'm not expecting complete realism on everything but seriously, for once just let things not work out the way everyone expects. Otherwise the reader is left feeling cheated when things are neatly tied up because of lucky coincidences. I feel this series has far too much of this to be enjoyable.

Though i love the series, the books have gone downhill since the 4-5th books. I understand Goodkind has to meet a quota for words, but his ramblings and his philosophies * some of his nonsense to explain certain things which make no sense to begin with are just not worth the reading anymore. I barely the last two books are better than 6-9 or 10 or so. In some cases you can avoid reading them
I hope the Nikki series is much better. May give 1st book a try

I am basically reviewing the first 13 books of this series since I read them all recently. An average of 3 is the best I can do, some are a little less not quite dipping to a rating of 2 and some actually creep toward a 4 rating but overall a 3 is the best I can do.

It's a shame really, some sections and scenes are very well written so much so they pull you in and you enjoy reading them but then the redundancies begin and pages and pages of Richard and Kahlan reminiscing or worrying or just missing the other. Please, too much some time.

Also, some of the lesser characters could be interesting in a similar way Terry Brooks builds his lesser characters before killing them off but all lesser characters here are giving short shrift
