Paladin's of shannara, take you back to one of Terry Brooks great characters, for fans its a book to cherish, for those who have never read Terry Brooks, its a great introduction to the world of Shannara.
I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good readPaladins of Shannara: Allanon's Quest (Short Story)
I will not go into it in any detail -- it's a quick read and it's only 65p -- but in reading it, I was transported back to when I was 11 years old (I'm 36 now) and devouring the first few pages of Sword.
It put a smile on my face, and although it didn't answer any questions or shed light on any great mysteries, it was a fantastic read and one I can't recommend enough.
If you have a Kindle-thingy, buy it. If you don't, download the "read it on your PC/MAC" tool... then buy it.
Seriously, one of the best things I've ever bought for under a quid.
Cheers for the memories, Terry.
This book covers the story of Allanon the Druid's quest to find someone of the Shannara bloodline and is set in the time just before and leading up to Mr. Brook's first novel Sword of Shannara.
In and of itself the story is well told and an enjoyable short read but as a prelude to the original story it is oh so much more.
Worth every penny
But it possessed a haunting quality that led me to keep the book on my shelf for years after the first read and to return to it time after time.
This is different in that it is much better writing from a man who has clearly gained confidence over time. It draws on his original tale - so not original at all - but in Shannara Brooks has a recipe that is successful ... so if it ain't broke, why fix it?
The story is no Booker Prize winner so no great literary merits here. The author still makes basic errors - such as 'information dumping' and 'showing rather than telling', but I chose to overlook them, regardless. And did I enjoy it? Yes. Was it worth 99p? Hell, yes. So, for anyone who wishes to take a trip down memory lane and while-away an hour or so reading a pleasant fantasy yarn, I can well recommended this one.
Interesting story telling of Allanon's quest to find the last heir to the Sword of Shannara. the Dark Lord as returned and to save the world Allanon's must be successful. To
