This was a book full of adventure, magic, monsters and heroes. An excellent follow on to Book One and leads temptingly into Book Three. A must for all Terry Brooks fans.

I'd started to read The Voyage of the Jerle Shannara series last year (and unfortunately haven't been able to finish it as the third book isn't on sale yet (;_;)) and I read this series to fill the gap. And it was great! This book was excellent, as with all of Brooks' works. The way he makes me feel a part of the story has made me a life long fan, and this book is no exception.
If you like authors of fantasy books, you'll love this (but make sure you read the rest of the series first so you know what its going on about!)! READ IT!

What can i say, if you have read the first book and liked it the the second is just as good. Not to give anything away, you will know who the Druid is quickly although its not confirmed untill the second half of the book. I read this in a week although I was on hoilday but I didn't want to put it down. I was forced to by the kids and the pool but could have read cover to cover.

I do like all for the various Shannara books and if you have started with this set I suggest you stop and start at the beginning of the previous set of books as events from these are refered to quite often. It doen't spoil your enjoyment at all, but will improve it without a doubt.

The first three Shannara books gave you the legacy of the Druids but not what it took to become one. The Druid of Shannara takes you right to the core of what the Druid legacy means and how it shapes the lives it touches. Growing pains will never seem the same again.

Book 2 in the Series of 4. In typical Terry Brooks reliable style it contains both the word "roil" and the word "roiling". When you see either of those you know you are home.
Each book in the Series (I am currently reading book 3) inevitably re-tells episodes from the proceeding book. In fact this can be a great help if you have a time lapse between volumes.
In this book, I couldn't see how it was going to conclude. In fact the conclusion was quite dramatic and lead smoothly on to "The Elf Queen of Shannara. If you like fantasy fiction the complex tales woven by the good Mr. Brooks will never disappoint.

Format: Paperback
The second book in the Heritage of Shannara series, the Druid of Shannara encompasses the second quest in this series, the quest of Walker Boe and the search for the Black Elfstone.

This novel lived up to the promise that the first novel in this series created. It was fast paced with great new characters and a wonderful story full of tension and twists. The introduction of Quickening, the daughter of the King of the Silver River, starts the tale as she goes out into the world and encounters the rest of a small party that will aid Walker in his search for the Elfstone.

Not much needs to be said about the story of this book as it pretty much continues what was started in the first book of the series. The quest took the story to new places that were not imagined in the first book and for a time at least the Shadowen took a back seat to an other evil that threatened the Four Lands. This four book series is pretty formulaic in that the first three books encompass the three quests of Allanon and the final book will bring the tale to an end. Though this is the case the stories are still wonderful individually and this one will not disappoint.

It might have been nice to see a bit more of Par's story as well as Wren's as it seemed they were all but forgotten in this novel but again I think that was to be expected in the way that Terry Brooks has put together this series.

All in all this was another excellent novel and it leaves you eager for the next in the series.
