Welcome to Reddit,
The furry body was armored in places with smooth, curved plates, like the shells of lobsters that fishermen sometimes delivered to Grafan Harbor. The creature came on wildly, intent on attacking them, hurting them, killing them. Judging from the mutilation of its body, especially the festering brand marks on its hide, she knew that some human—some evil human—had shaped this creature. Even though Nicci understood its reflexive attack, she did not intend to let the monster harm her companions. The molten substance would engulf the bear monster and turn its repulsive form into purified ash. She hurled the fireballs, one after the other, as the monster crashed closer, knocking lichen-covered trees out of the way.
The formidable sorceress Nicci and her companions—the newly powerless Nathan and the youthful Bannon—set out on another quest after driving ruthless Norukai slavers out of Renda Bay. Guided by the witch-woman Red's mysterious prophecy, the trio makes their way south of Kol Adair towards a wondrous city shrouded behind time, Ildakar. But the grotesque omens on their path to Nathan's salvation—severed Norukai heads on pikes, a genetically modified monster, and a petrified army of half a million—are just a taste of the unimaginable horrors that await within the Shroud of Eternity.

However, Goodkind seems to be taking a turn for the better and is showing some of his old writing prowess. We find our ragtag pairing of Nicci and Nathan trekking deeper into the Old World, past Kol-Adair to the ancient and mysterious city of Ildakar. We quickly find out the city is in tact and inhabited with the wizards whose powers rivals of that of old, reason being their city has been around for over 15 centuries. Ildakar protected itself with a powerful enchantment known as the shroud of eternity, which took the city out of time and space. This shroud was a protective measure against an invading army that sought the destruction of the city. They have created what they believe to be a Utopia, but like all Utopias, something sinister plagues the city underneath its picture-perfect image the gifted nobles try to uphold.
