Best of the bunch,
This review is from: Paladins of Shannara: The Black Irix (short story) (Kindle Edition)
I have very much enjoyed Terry's return to some of my favourite characters in all three short stories -- but i feel this one was the best.
At times, it felt like it wanted a larger canvas on which to express itself, but that never detracted from the story.
It requires no further detailed review, as to do so would spoil the thing completely. But it is amazing how, twenty-seven years after reading The Sword Of Shannara for the first time, Shea's voice sounds exactly the same.
I am grateful to Terry for these three stories. I guess they are a journey down memory lane, to simpler times before bills and work and all the stresses of adulthood. And much like bumping into an old girlfriend, it's nice to know that the past can still make you feel good.
