A good hook into the Shannara story
on 25 December 2012
If you haven't read any of the Shannara story yet, or any of Terry Brooks other novels, this will give you a taste of the style, twists and turns that you will find within those pages. If, like me, Shannara is so familiar that you can recite passages almost word for word, then you may find this short story a little frustrating. However, it will make me search out other Terry Brooks works to help feed my appetite for more. Some consider Tolkien the master of the genre but in my eyes he has been surpassed and there is a new master in town.
