I really would have given the end of the Heritage of Shannara series 4 stars, but Brooks screwing up Walker's character at the end and having NUMEROUS times where two hands are being used when he definitely only has one was just poor editing. It was clear that the ending was written before several of the events of the series, that, or the editing was so slipshod that a 10 year old could have done better. (I remember being bothered by this on my first reading as a kid as well).

Other than a few flaws like that, it was a pretty stellar end to a 4 book series, and one that I'll always look back on fondly as the series that good me hooked on... well, novels in a series.
