It was really good to read another Terry Brooks novel. He is a master of the genre and if you've read his other books then it's like putting on a comfortable garment, as the background and family histories are all familiar. I look forward to the next in the series.

I have read an earlier book in this series, and absolutely loved it so I was extremely looking forward to this one and it didn't disappoint! Terry Brooks has an amazing way of weaving a plot that sucks the reader in from the very first page. The storyline of The Darkling Child is unique in so many ways. At an initial glance it may seem like a typical paranormal, war based novel, but there really is so much more to it than that. The characters are well scripted, the language used is beautifully descriptive and you can't stop yourself from getting hooked!
