Are Richard and Kahlan Together?
« on: December 14, 2008, 01:39:05 AM »
Ok, I'm new to the series, and am currently on book 2 and loving it.

I just had one question I need to know, and that is if Richard and Kahlan are together after Confessor. I know it's going to be a long time til I get to Book 11, and the answer to the question will actually make the current books more interesting for me.

Yup, they're together at the end of Confessor ;)

Thanks, both of you. Usually I prefer to read the series and find out for myself, but that was something that was bugging me to death, with all the chaos in the books (within the first two at least) regarding them and how they can never be together. It's nice to know they are together in the end.

It also lets me look at parts of the book differently as well.

Seriously? I can't wait til book 4 then, because I love the emotion in these books. I literally hurt when I read book 1 with Richard being tortured by Denna. Like, I felt physical pain reading it.

So, I'm glad to know Richard and Kahlan are still together after the series ends, with all the talk of them not being able to be together (I know it was because of her abilities but to get past that barrier in the first book when there are 10 more is a little odd).

Another question, does Scarlet show up some more? I know her son does, but wasn't sure if Scarlet does herself.

I think one of the great things about these books is that the formulaic sexual tension isn't used throughout the series as a "omg will they get together?" sort of thing, it is a more mature, we know they are together and they are still crazy about each other and that it's self generates sexual tension.

I see so many books and tv series that wont ever make their main characters get together even though they are aching to simply because once they do, the sexual tension is gone. Goodkind on the otherhand took the formula for sexual tension and elevated it to a mature level which i think is fantastic.

There is never any doubt that the two are meant to be together and are aching to be together and it continues to be an earth shattering, ground moving, sweaty nights, cold showers, love story right up to the very end and that right there is a triumph of literary work right there. So few people understand that love doesn't stop when the chase stops. A true love story isn't two people meeting and dating. A true love story is two people being together and staying together no matter what.

I agree, which is why I was curious as to whether or not they were together in the end. That does make a story better, two people in love that overcome all the trials and are still together, which really doesn't happen often in books, movies, or tv shows. They usually do like you said, and have the sexual tension of two people that want to be together but never do for fear that it won't be as good when they are together.

I can't wait to finish the series. I've been busy so I'm still early in book 2. I'm still where Richard and Kahlan are at the Mud people. They just found out his headaches are from his spirit. No idea what's up with that yet though:)

Is it wrong to say that I loved that part? I mean really, I felt good when she bit her tongue off & broke all her teeth, LOL!

It has already been answered, but yes, they are, this was an incredible journey. I only hope Terry will take a much deserved break and continue the saga for us. Confessor was a great ending to a great story-well done Terry!!!!
