Not overly fond of this series. I didn't think there was enough character development, and pray tell, WHY is every hero in every fantasy a redhead? I don't get it. I did get it in the Darkover series written by my favorite sci-fi fantasy author Marion Zimmer Bradley. The Comyn lords were all descended from terrans from Scotland. Ergo... Red hair. but I digress... This series just doesn't light my kindling, it's too run of the fantasy mill for me. The plot was too predictable also. Descriptions w

I listed to Terry Brooks "The High Druid of Shannara Jakka Ruus while I drove into work each day. I hated when I got into work because I had to turn off the CD player in my truck. I'm getting ready for our Easter Brunch but wanted to say I loved this Audio book and can't wait to hear Tanaquil.
Three books in one, but it took me well over a month to finish because it just didn't hold my attention very well. Action wasn't very good at any point in the series. Also, i didn't really understand moving away from the main story lines and adding another one involving the elves(didn't really belong). The stories just didn't flow and i groaned when they went back to the elves or to the druids. Stick with the story line of the boy and his companions or the Ilse witch and you would of had a bette ...more

I would have given this book a higher rating if she could have wrote a decent ending to the trilogy. It was going so well then it falls apart I guess she ran out of ideas on how to,tie up the loose ends.
Practice Review: I really enjoyed this book. It is full of action, adventure, a little romance, and magic. The High Druid goes missing and there is no trace. It is up to Penderrin and his company to get his aunt back. If anyone is looking for a challenge and a great fantasy book read this. I couldn't put this book down. I would also recommend the other Shannara books which are amazing to.
another generation of Olmsford elves have been endowed with magic and saved Shannara. good story, entertaining.
