Although it is book eight of Terry Goodkind's bestselling Sword of Truth fantasy series, NAKED EMPIRE stands alone and welcomes new listeners. Jim Bond's narration imparts a mythical quality while transporting the listener to a world of wizards, soul-stealers, potions, and magic. The magical Lord Richard Rahl and Kahlan, the last Mother Confessor, are but two of the many characters in this intricate story. Jim Bond's strong, melodic storytelling talent brings rich detail to Terry Goodkind's world while blending the lessons in ethics reflected in the many subplots and surprises of this wonderful, imaginative book. M.F.D.
