September 2015 Update:
For those of you who love Terry Brook's books here's an update. Shannara, is now a TV series on MTV, with a scheduled premiere date in January 2016. I'll be writing blogs about the journey to the premiere and covering episodes here >> http://www.kandiedelley.com/category/...

Please follow and support Terry!

I have waited nearly 20+ years to see "Elfstones" made into a movie. Although this is a TV show, I know with its large fan base supporting the show, it could eventually become a movie. I only wish I WAS IN IT!!!! LOL.

My Original Review below:

This is by far the BEST FANTASY READ by Brooks [in my opinion]. I remember reading this in 8th grade [I think] and just being floored. I wrote him, the author, in 1992 and 1995 and he wrote personal letters back encouraging me, a young writer. That alone said volumes of his character to me, so I have been loyal ever since.

Mr. Brooks's description and narrative are INSANE and he is the author that made me want to write fantasy. Can't wait for his books to be come movies. Supposedly there's a rumor that Elf Stones will be adapted to film. HOORAH!

I started with this book [unaware of the Sword of Shannara, the first book] and although the first book is good in it's own right, you can literally start with Elfstones and not be 'lost'. LOVE , LOVE , LOVE this man's work!

And the illustrations by Darrell K. Sweet are off the chain!

Laura I first read his books around middle school as well, and my best friend and I wrote him letters asking him all kinds of ridiculous questions (why so much flaming red hair?) The fact that he wrote us back just meant so much to two preteens who had fallen in love with his books. I think it's time for a re-read.


Kandie Absolutely @Laura!
In fact, you do know that Shannara is now a TV series on MTV?
