4.0 out of 5 stars Bit of a funny ending, 18 Mar 2007
This book i will agree wasnt as good as i expected. I had an imadge of the forboding being more - hostile, violent and dangerous place and i wish there was more exploration there.

I liked the war with the freeborn and the federation but I did get the feeling the ending was rushed although a little bit funny for the demon at the end.

Still I would recommend

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read, 18 Mar 2007
On the run and a race agaisnt time this book is fast paced and exciting.

With druids after them as well as some very errie and evil characters in this world and in the other.

As well as this the freeborn continue to face ever growing presence of the Federation.

This book has it all make sure you have Straken ready though.


Jarka Ruus (High Druid of Shannara)
Jarka Ruus (High Druid of Shannara)
by Terry Brooks
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Now into new relams, 18 Mar 2007
Another book in a long line of Shannara books.

We see war still rages through the 4 lands and the Druid council is now formed and their leader has been betrayed and has been sent into the Forboding.

I would strongly reccomend this book to anyone. There are a new set of challanges to faces with very little feeling of the same story coming back again.

These books are very unique set of fantasy books in the way that we have seen how the land and characters have evolved.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great end to a great seris, 18 Mar 2007
After finishing Antrax I couldn't wait to pick up this book. We follow the ever dwindling crew on what seems to be an never ending nightmare for them. At times it is hard to think that anyone will make it back from here and you can feel the hardships still being endured by the crew Big Red and Quentin Leah in particular.

With big losses taken by the crew they have to dig deep to even get there airship ready to leave the ground and then survive the journey home.

I liked this seris alot more than the previous two. Like the last seris we still see the different story lines happening and evolving some other people i know discribed it as dis jointed and unpredictable but if like me you prefer books like this then you wont be dispointed.

Ilse Witch: The Voyage of the Jerle Shannara 1: Ilse Witch Bk. 1
by Terry Brooks
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Start of the best seris., 17 Mar 2007
After the Talisman of Shannara I couldnt wait to see what would come next.

150 years have past in the 4 lands and an elf is found in the blue divide with a mysterious map of a strange land. In this book we see how event have changed in the 4 lands the was still rages with the free born and the federation.

I liked the new air of mystery that this book produces and also the continued struggles that Walker faces in is new role as a Druid as well the host of new characters - the rovers in particular in really liked.

If you liked the progression of the history of the Shannara seris you will like this one as well as being an excellent read.

The Talismans Of Shannara: The Heritage of Shannara, book 4
by Terry Brooks
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent conclusions, 16 Mar 2007
This book is an excellent read that will keep you turnng the pages. Betweens battle with Walker in the Druids keep, Wren as she comands the Elven army and Par and Coll's battling for survival. These are simply just a few things that are happening in this dramatic conclusions to an excellent seris.

With all the threads from the last three books coming together is hard to believe just how much is crammed into this excellent book. You can really feel what is happening in this book thanks to fantastic and ever changing story writting.

One the must read fantasy books.


The Elf Queen of Shannara (A Del Rey book)
The Elf Queen of Shannara (A Del Rey book)
by Terry Brooks
Edition: Mass Market Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars The Adventure contiunes, 16 Mar 2007
In this book we follow the story of Wren in search of the Elves. Aparently vanished from the 4 lands she finds her way to a dangerous and mysterious island.

Like his other books this shows improvment and more confidence in his writing style. We see develpoment in characters and the world he has created with a story line that really make the pages keep turning.

This book has it all hardship, dispair and loss that you can't help but be moved by.

Edition: Mass Market Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Best in this series, 16 Feb 2007
This books is alot stronger than than any of the other Shannara books. I feel Terry Brooks has realy developed as a writer with this book.

In this book we see a few new chracters and we see deeper into Walker's dark and mysterious character.

A group of tortured souls are forced to work together as they face more difficult and dangerous challenges with the tension between the characterd gets so intence i expected them to kill each other before there task was over.

To top that there are some tragic twists and you can help but be moved.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very impressive start, 16 Feb 2007
As I started this book (i dont tend to read the back of books) I expected it to follow on from the wishsong of shannara. But no the elves are gone there is no Paranor and the Dwarfs are slaves and the federation rules.

Intrigued in what has happened in a few hundred years I read on.

From the start this book shows us how this world has changed - for the worse. Its a much more sinister and evil places than it was a few hundred years ago.

The characters in this book are more complex and different and previous one that we have and this is similar for the story line. We see it starts to branchs out from typical linear style of many books and has a more 3D effect ie different event going on at the same time - something I realy like in book.

This effect along with a well maintained story telling will leave you wanting to keep on reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bit of a giggle, 16 Feb 2007
I found this book in a car boot sale for a pound and having just spent the last 2 or 3 months reading 'View from the Mirror Quartet' I fancyed something short not too serious and this looked like it would fit the picture.

It is obviously written for a younger age group but on the whole i found this to be an ok read (not exception) but quite funny and entertaining in places and an intersting take on an old tale.

Although is wasnt the best book that i have read it did manage to keep me interested to find any others of this seris that might exist.
