The Third Kingdom is Terry Goodkind's 16th novel, and is the second in a new series about Richard and Kahlan. The book starts off where the previous novel, The Omen Machine, left off. It is followed by Severed Souls. The Third Kingdom was released in hardcover on August 20, 2013.
The bloodthirsty Jit is dead, and against all odds Richard and Kahlan have survived. But a new menace has attacked them in the Dark Lands. Infected with the essence of death itself, robbed of his power as a war wizard, Richard must race against time to uncover and stop the infernal conspiracy assembling itself behind the wall far to the north. His friends and allies are already captives of this fell combination, and Kahlan, also touched by death's power, will die completely if Richard fails.
