I gave this novel 5 out of 5 stars on Amazon and Goodreads!
Terry Brooks first Shannara Novel is in my top ten books of all time. I have read it at least 8 times. The story is classic High Fantasy with unprepared heroes thrust into war and chaos with little guidance. Their journey, not only through the wonderful world Terry Brooks weaves, but also through the personal growth of the characters, is amazingly enjoyable. Of all the Shannara books I have read, I always have the foundation of this novel to fall back on to refresh the love I have of the many trilogies. I remember waiting each year for the next book and eagerly anticipate the next installments!
