After hearing so much about Terry Brooks, I decided to settle on reading Armageddon's Children after finding it in the library. While the storyline was quite intriguing and unique I would say (Post apocalyptic fantasy!), I was a bit let down by the style of writing.

I found the writing to be overly simplistic as some of the other reviewers have already commented. It goes into every single detail which at times is really unnecessary. Another thing that annoyed me was the dialog. The children's side was alright, I was really disappointed by the elves side. The dialog showed them as simplistic, completely the same as humans. Their actions and reactions are childish and predictable, as compared to the works of other great authors who gave each race their own personality and character.

I don't really think I'll delve further into this series, but we'll see...
