I was excited by the idea of combining "The Word and the Void" with my favorite books - the Shannara series. I was also intrigued: how would he pull it off? Painfully and slowly, like removing a band-aid. It wasn't until the end that the story finally picked up.
Will I finish the trilogy? Of course! We are talking about the birth of Shannara!!! Hint: if you've read the entire Shannara series up to this point and haven't touched Word and the Void series, do! This book will make completely no sense at all! Trust me on this!
