I cannot describe the disappointment when I opened the package. This was a book for my husband's upcoming holiday. This is not a book this is a pamphlet. It only has 96 pages in large print. I'm sure I've seen a bigger instruction booklet for a toaster. I am not disputing the content of the book as they say all good things come in small packages. But please this is supposed to be a good read and looks just like a short story. Great if you have a limited attention span like myself but for a bookworm forget it!!!! Sorry Terry!!!

Thought this was a proper Brooks novel. Only a short story. Expensive for what it was. Will read the small print in future

HASH(0x97549348) out of 5 stars Classic Brooks 10 Jun. 2011
By Jake Scholl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
*Note: I recommend reading The Sword of Shannara, Elfstones of Shannara, and The Wishsong of Shannara before reading this book.

Premise
The evil Illdatch, a book of evil sorcery was once thought destroyed by the descendant of Shea Ohmsford, by Brin Ohmsford. But, there was a page she didn't know about that was missing. It is up to her brother Jair, to destroy it once and for all. Can he do it without dying? One can try.

Review

The old school Shannara books are arguably the best I've read by Terry Brooks, the new ones after like 2005, aren't really that good. When I bought this short novel on Kindle, I was hoping the magic from the old series would come back.
And come back it did.
The novel takes place two years after the events that unfolded in The Wishsong of Shannara. Brin Ohmsford has grown up, and is now out of Shady Vale, is now married to Rone Leah and is pregnant. Jair on the otherhand is still in Shady Vale, working in the family Inn. His life is vey peaceful, and all of it is shattered when Kimber Boh, grandaughter of the Druid Cogline, comes and tells Jair to come with her to destroy the last page of the Ildatch, that is locked up in the Fortress Dun Fee Aran.
The plot really isn't surprising at first. Just classic Terry Brooks. I was reminded why I like him. I love quest stories. So if you hate it, stay away. Brooks is back!
The characters are realistic , and are exactly how I remembered them, except for Jair. Jair is no longer a whiner, he is tough and has grown up. He is far more fun to read about now.
Writing quality is wordy at times. Thank Amazon for putting a dictionary easy to get into on the Kindle. His writing is reminiscent of Tolkien and if you hate Tolkien, again stay away. I also like the fact it's a short novel, or novella. No eat, fight, sleep pattern that plague many an epic fantasy.

Verdict
5 out of 5 stars! Grab it, it's worth the whole $2.99!

Also available in print in the Legends II Anthology and Nook!

HASH(0x97549564) out of 5 stars An Exciting Short Novel From Terry Brooks 3 May 2012
By Jeffrey T. Munson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
In the events of "The Wishsong of Shannara", Jair Ohmsford, his sister Brin, Allanon, and Garet Jax had successfully destroyed the great book of evil known as the Ildatch. But, two years later, Jair is warned by Kimber Boh that one page of the book survived Brin's destruction. Now, at Kimber's urging, Jair finds that he must be the one to destroy this last page once and for all.

Jair, Kimber, and Kimber's grandfather Cogline set out for the prison fortress of Dun Fee Aran, home of the missing page. Jair has the gift of the wishsong like Brin did, but his verison is not as powerful. Upon reaching the fortress, Jair puts medicine in the drinks of Cogline and Kimber so they will stay asleep while he searches for the missing page alone. Will he survive to find the page, or will the evil Mwellrets who guard the Ildatch stop him?

I've been a fan of Terry Brooks for many years, and I've read all of his previous works. It's been several years since I've read "The Wishsong of Shannara", but this fine short novel does a good job of bringing the early Shannara stories to a conclusion. It was fun to read about Jair Ohmsford again and see how he deals with the realization that his magic power is much different than he thought. This story is a quick read and it is packed with action. Brooks fans won't want to miss "Indomitable".

HASH(0x975495dc) out of 5 stars Better Than Expected... 25 July 2008
By Bubba_Holtzkopf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I love short stories. Stories are just that much better when you have to get the whole thing into a limited number of pages. To me, the ultimate novel would have all the chapters be stand alone short stories which connected to tell a greater story. Legends II is another collection of short stories by famous authors which details events from their most noted fantasy worlds. I have not read the collection, but merely Terry Brooks contribution: Indomitable.

I had not predicted this book would be so good.

I guess when Terry Brooks takes a chance, and strays away from his preconceived writing "formula" he can produce some pretty intriguing work. He can actually take interesting ideas, which he had not dealt with before and lay them out in unexpected ways. If there is one thing about Terry Brooks which is always predictable, that is the fact that he is always predictable.

But, when you think about it, this book, like the other three, starts the same way. I guess Terry is predictable after all. Still, this book is a lot different from any of his works before, as it deals with some unexplored territory. You can tell it is quite a stretch for him, and it is quite refreshing after having just read 'Wishsong.'

Highly recommended.

HASH(0x9754eb70) out of 5 stars good read, but too short for the price. 5 Jan. 2016
By nick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The content and writing style was interesting and true to form of the prior shannara books, but the story is short and rushed and not quite worth the money. I enjoyed revising old characters but it was not long enough to be worth it. If you want to read the novella just pay $5 more to get the full legends 2 anthology.
