The Blood of the Fold is group of men who are devoted to the Creator and to eradicating magic which they claim comes from the Keeper. Because Richard has magic, the leader of the Fold decides that he needs to stop Richard and comes up with two plans to accomplish it. One try to have him seduced by a woman assassin, and two kidnap his bride-to-be.

Richard almost falls for the woman but at the last minute a mriswith attacks her to protect Richard. Because the mriswith protected Richard, he no longer looks at the creatures the same way, but later he finds out what a foolish mistake that was.

Meanwhile, with Kahlan, Richard's fiancee, the Blood of the Fold attacks her group and takes her to the Palace of the Prophets where the Fold is going to meet with Jagang, the Emperor of the Old World.

In the last few chapters of the story, Richard after discovering revealing information about travel, leaves the city to go save Kahlan but he just hopes that he has not waited to long.
