    "once again not Scott Brick"
    Overall

    Needed to be Scott Brick and unabridged. I went to reading the book because that guy narrating was HORRIBLE.

    When the world was young, and its name was Faerie, the power of magic ruled - and the Elfstones warded the race of Elves and their lands, keeping evil at bay. But when an Elven girl fell hopelessly in love with a Darkling boy of the Void, he carried away more than her heart. Thousands of years later, tumultuous times are upon the world now known as the Four Lands. Users of magic are in conflict with proponents of science. Elves have distanced their society from the other races. The Druid order is threatened.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would if they had read all his other books. It's not a starter book for anyone.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Wards of Faerie?

    I'd rather not say so I don't spoil it for anybody who hasn't read it yet.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    She just wasn't a good one for these books. But not the worst narrator I've ever heard. You kinda get used to her. Phil Gigante or Sam Tsoutsouvas are really the best guys for Terry Brooks.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    I have always been a huge fan of Terry Brooks. I did enjoy this story, and have big hopes for the series. It wasn't as long as I had hoped. There wasn't as much action as there should have been. I just wish that one Druid would come along that is as bad-ass as Allanon or Grianne. These Druids are weak and pitiful.

    The danger is increasing for Grianne Ohmsford, rightful High Druid of Shannara, who has been banished to the harsh world called the Forbidding by a treasonous fellow Druid. Her only hope for rescue is her nephew Pen, but Pen is under siege as well. Both he and his parents are sought by the Druids, who want to make sure that their magic will never help Grianne to return.

    Lainee says: "Wrong Narrator"
    "Not Scott Brick"
    Overall

    I am currently listening to this book. I have only started listening to Terry Brooks novels a few months ago. I am very pleased with Terry Brooks and Scott Brick. But this books narrator is horrible. Not nearly as clear speaking as Scott Brick. I almost stopped listening but I can't only out of respect for Terry Brooks. I only wish it was Scott reading it to me.

  • The Wishsong of Shannara: The Shannara Series, Book 3

    Fans of the Shannara epic will revel as the forces of good battle an evil book, the Ildatch, which sends the Mord Wraiths to destroy mankind. To overcome this dark force, the Druid Allanon needs Brin Ohmsford, for she holds the power of the wishsong, a magic invoked by singing that can make plants bloom instantly or turn trees from green to autumn gold.

    Kenneth says: "Great book and Great reader"
    "Amazing"
    Overall

    Terry Brooks is by far my favorite author. I wasn't much of a reader until my friend suggested this series. I am totally addicted now. The Wishsong is my favorite on thus far. Terry Brooks is the only reason that I read anything now. I will be passing it on to my friends and family in the years to come. Keep up the good work and I'll keep on buying your books.
