    In this prequel to The Sword of Shannara, in which many details of the Four Lands' history are revealed, Druids, horrified by the misuse of magic, have eschewed it in favor of science. But Bremen the Druid studies magic, and becomes an outcast on its account. Bremen discovers that an invincible army of trolls are fast conquering all that lay to their south. Before them come the Nazgul-like Skull Bearers, disfigured and transformed Druids who have fallen prey to the dark arts.

    This and all of Terry Brooks books a wonderful, I just wished that all of the unabridged versions of his book were on audible. Well they have been getting more, but I highly recomend this book.

    After being murdered by a mystery assailant, navigating his way through the realm between life and death, and being brought back to the mortal world, Harry realizes that maybe death wasn’t all that bad - because he is no longer Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard. He is now Harry Dresden, Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness. After Harry had no choice but to swear his fealty, Mab wasn’t about to let something as petty as death steal away the prize she had sought for so long.

    Roshar is a world of stone and storms. Uncanny tempests of incredible power sweep across the rocky terrain so frequently that they have shaped ecology and civilization alike. Animals hide in shells, trees pull in branches, and grass retracts into the soilless ground. Cities are built only where the topography offers shelter. It has been centuries since the fall of the ten consecrated orders known as the Knights Radiant, but their Shardblades and Shardplate remain: mystical swords and suits of armor.

    Lore says: "Wow - 45 hours long and leaves you wanting more!"
    "Outstanding!"
    Overall

    Brandon Sanderson is fast becoming one of my favorite, if not my favorite writer. they way he has finished the wheel of time and this new book The way of Kings is absolutely awesome. I can not wait until the next book in the series. This looks like it could be one of the best series when completed. Well worth the listen. Kate Reading and Michael Kramer are a couple of the best narrators I have listened to, I loved their work in the Wheel of Time.

    Since Sam Walton's death in 1992, Wal-Mart has gone from being the largest retailer in the world to holding the top spot on the Fortune 500 list as the largest company in the world. Don Soderquist, who was senior vice chairman during that time, played a crucial role in that success. Sam Walton said, "I tried for almost 20 years to hire Don Soderquist....But when we really needed him later on, he finally joined up and made a great chief operating officer."

    Russell says: "Eye opener"
    "Wal mart is a good company"
    Overall

    People don't like Wal Mart and I find that hard to believe. Small business can still make it with a wal mart in town. If a small business is good it can survive big retailers. I am from the home town of wal mart and it still has small businesses and small retail stores that have been in business for years. I believe that wal mart provides a good service for people and if someone does not like the store they don't have to shop there. Just my two cents

    Horror stalked the Four Lands as the Ildatch, ancient source of evil, sent its ghastly Mord Wraiths to destroy Mankind. Only Druid Allanon held the magic power of wishsong that could make plants bloom instantly or turn trees from green to autumn gold. But she, too, was in mortal danger, and Ildatch waited for Brin to fall into his trap.

    In The Dragon's Son, there is new hope in the form of a special offspring who might be able to bridge the anarchy that is disrupting the delicate and unseen order that the Parliament has tried to protect. The twin offspring of a high priestess and a dragon hold the key to man's future, but their identity must be held secret, even from each other, until they have matured. One is raised in a human court, the other in hiding.

    S. Marie says: "Just bad"

    I liked the second intstallment in this series, it was well written and did not go the way that I had expected it to go. I can't wait for the next book to come out I just hope it does not take to long to be released.

    Here is a world where men and dragons coexist amid political intrigue and dark magic, where the uneasy balance of power between the two is on the verge of becoming undone, threatening to unleash waves of destruction that will pit humans against humans as well as dragons against men for the domination of the world. Humanity's very survival is at risk.

    Long ago, the wars of the ancient Evil ruined the world. In peaceful Shady Vale, half-elfin Shea Ohmsford knows little of such troubles. But the supposedly dead Warlock Lord is plotting to destroy everything in his wake. The sole weapon against this Power of Darkness is the Sword of Shannara, which can be used only by a true heir of Shannara. On Shea, last of the bloodline, rests the hope of all the races.

    Nicholas says: "Finally Unabridged!"
    "Great as always!"

    This is one of terry brooks best books and I am really glad it has came out in the unabridged version, can't wait for elfstones to come out unabridged and the rest of the series after the wishsong to be released.

    Despite denouncing her former life as the dreaded Ilse Witch, Grianne Ohmsford still has bitter enemies within the Third Druid Council. Among the highest ranks lurk those who cannot forget her reign of terror, who covet her seat of power, and who will stop at nothing to see her deposed - or destroyed. Even Grianne's few allies know of the lots against her. But they could never anticipate her sudden, ominous disappearance in the dead of the night without a trace.

    Tabitha says: "When is that next book coming out?"
    "Captivating can't wait for the next two books!"
    Overall

    This is an awesome story and terry brooks is an amazing writer. The only disappointing thing is, is that it will be another year for the next book and anonther year after that for the last book. I highly recomend this book and any book Terry Brooks has written
