When the first chapter opened in something akin to the modern world, I was not sure I was going to enjoy this one. However, Brooks did it again--he drew me in--with characters I grew to love. I'm looking forward to the next book in three series!
Classic Terry Brooks, and an effective antidote for those missing "The Sword of Truth."
Enjoyable characters with plenty of continuing plot lines and complex plot twists.
I read like a madwoman all my life but now I have bad eyes. Thank goodness for audio books
Unlike other reviewers I have not read any other Terry Brooks novels prior to this one. It caught my interest and carried me along. This was a great story about the end of the world and with a little magic thrown in.
The reader is very believable and takes you to the story with heart. The characters came alive. I will choose this reader again.
Dick Cheney was funny and brave and a great addition to the story.
As much as I love music, I'd rather listen to a book. I love being taken far far away while doing everything.
I found it unusual that a Terry Brooks novel bored me during the first few lines, but once you get past the first chapter everything seems to go on as normal. Good story that eventually link into the Shannara series, but it took a little getting used to.
I did end up liking this book.
I typically do not listen to books like this but it was suggested by a friend & I loved it. It's a little gory at times but the whole story is one of holding onto your faith no matter what.
