Amazon Review

Morgawr, the third volume of Terry Brooks’ "The Voyage of the Jerle Shannara" trilogy, continues his productive exploration of guilt, moral ambiguity and adventures in huge airships.

The Ilse Witch, Grianne, has found out that everything she has ever believed, all the reasons for revenge which have led her into evil magic, are a lie--that her mentor the reptilian Morgawr is her enemy--and for much of the book she is in such a state of moral and mental collapse that she has to rely on the mercy of her former enemies and her brother, the young Highlander Bek. As he and the other separated members of his party trek through cold forests and dragon-haunted jungles, they find themselves pursued by the Morgawr’s demonic allies--by misguided troops from home and finally by the Morgawr himself with a fleet full of zombie aeronauts.

This trilogy is about the best thing Brooks has done because it is, much of the time, far less reliant than he has been on the stock materials of fantasy; the mixture of magic and technology here has sparked in him a real inventiveness that can excite even the jaded reader. --Roz Kaveney --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Having devoured the previous books in this series I had eagerly awaited the final book, and I have not been disappointed. With as many twists and turns as the volumes before it, Morgawr led me to it's heartstopping conclusion in a matter of a day. I simply could not put it down. With his superb writing style and comic twists Terry Brooks has once again come up with a winner. Discover if the Ilse Witch wakes up friend or foe, will the Morgawr catch up with the Jerle Shannara or will the brave ship fall apart first, will Red finally realise her feelings for Bek - or is it a doomed love. All these questions and more are answered in this superb book. Read it.

I have just finished reading Terry Brooks lastest Shannara book: Morgawr. It is a good read, which looses none of the pace or atmosphere of the previous Shannara books, and which beats the 'Antrax' for being a good read.
This books brings the series of books: Flight of the Jerle Shannara to a conclusion, introducing new plot twists, and new (if hinted at charecters) into the narative. He also keeps up the pace until the very end, keeping the reader on edge until the last line of text.
Where the book does fail is with what Terry Pratchett would call 'Navaritium' the stuff of stories, which hold stories together. TB's charecters often find themselves falling for old tricks, and rather obvious plot avenues. This makes the reading a little disapointing at times, especially as it makes you want to shout 'He's behind you'. However these are thankfully few and far between.
The book ends well (if obviously), and is obviously a spring-board for future Shannara books, however I do wonder whether it will be possible to keep the 'fantasy fiction' feel to the stories now that TB has introduced quite advanced technology into the 'Four Lands'.
To really appreciate the book, one would need to read the other Shannara books first, as these provide the background and narrative elements to the story to make it whole. However, I would imagine that only really dedicated TB fans would really want to read this book in Hard Back.

Morgawr is the third and final installment of the latest Shannara series - The Voyage of Jerle Shannara. The story finally tells us what happens to Walker, the truth about the Ilse Witch and Bek, and introduces us properly to the Morgawr, the Ilse Witch's mentor who up until now we have not really seen that much of.
I have to admit that the book was slow going at first. It begins right in the middle of all the action where the previous book left off yet you somehow feel you've seen it all before. We want something new and exciting! However, as the story unfolds you become more invloved and intrigued until the very end (which is one of the most infuriating endings ever let me tell you!)
The story explores love (for friends, family and lovers), and we get the usual odd gory scene you come to know and love from Terry. I didn't feel that the Morgawr was menacing enough however as the lead baddy. I felt there had been far more scary monsters throughout the series previously.
Despite this, and despite the lack of throwbacks to the original novels, Morgawr is still a fantastic read from the King of Fantasy and one that you will not be able to put down.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Terry Brooks has been doing the rounds for a while now. I think the first shannara book, the Sword of Shannara came out in the late 70's. This latest trilogy of the series is as well written as ever. Often hard to put down, the story is enthralling and didn't ever feel tired. For those who have never read a Shannara book, the story revolves around a bloodline known as the Ohmfords, descendants of Jerle Shannara who defeated the Warlock Lord when he first rose. The Jerle Shannara of the title is in fact an airship, named after the great elf king of the same name, and the book chronical a story of the airships journey to a distant land to gain a powerful magic before the mysterios Ilse Witch. Its hard to tell any more without including spoilers, but suffice to say the story is strong, with many twists and lots of deaths in typical Brooks style. The books are not exactly classics, as they lack that revolutionary essence to be so. However, the triology is an excellent fantasy story that will please fans no end!

When I first heard about the Jerle Shannara trilogy I was in serious doubt that Brooks could stand up to his own standards; now that the series is over, I am very happy to admit that I was wrong. This is the definite proof that a book should not be really original to be a good read. The plot of the trilogy is quite predictable for old Brooks fans and the finale is no exception (this is why I only give 4 stars). Normally I would consider this as a major drawback in a book, however the storytelling is so good, that nothing can prevent the whole story from being highly enjoyable. The writting style of Brooks was always great and it keeps getting better; not only the author doesn't seem to be getting bored of his subject, as is the case with so many others, but his writing is more refreshing than ever. If you are a fan, then this guarantees a good read. If you are new to Brooks, then if you only intend to read a part of the Shannara series, the Jerle Shannara trilogy should be it.
