Richard arrives at the Palace of the Prophets to begin his wizard training. He meets the beautiful and mysterious Sister Nicci who tells him that the other sisters are lying to him. Not knowing who to trust, Richard is forced into a dark alliance with Nicci while Kahlan, Zedd and Cara find and name a new Seeker in Richard's absence.

I've gotten to know you, Richard. You would never leave innocent women at the mercy of a monster.
I'd hardly call the Sisters of the Light innocent women. You've lied to me, held me captive and separated me from the people I love most in the world. But worst of all, you've used your piety as an excuse to take away my freedom.
Everything I've done I've done with the best intentions.
I don't need training to tell you Wizard's Second Rule: "The greatest harm can result from the best intentions."
