    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.

    What made the experience of listening to Wards of Faerie the most enjoyable?

    The narrator was great but it was the story itself , this is undoubtedly Terry Brooks finest book since The First King Of Shannara.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This story had me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end. Some parts of it were so thrilling i had to hold my breath


    What about Rosalyn Landor’s performance did you like?

    She did a great job of relating the emotions of the characters involved. I liked in particular the scene where the Khyber confronts the Ohmsford Twin's mother. The emotion was raw in that scene and she did a great job of portraying the mother's intense reaction to Khyber's request.


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

    The Battle of Paranor was very thrilling, I didn't know what was going to happen from one moment to the next even though it was a mismatch going into it. The Federation had no chance to win the battle but the narrative and the story really made it seem like they were going to do it.


    Any additional comments?

    This is Terry's finest novel in a decade and i hope he continues the momentum throughout the rest of the decade.
