    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 try another book from Terry Brooks and/or Rosalyn Landor?

    Yes, I like Terry's older stuff.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Flat, was surprised it ended where it did.


    What does Rosalyn Landor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Really good job!!


    Was Wards of Faerie worth the listening time?

    Absolutely

    Would you listen to Thinblade again? Why?

    I am not much for writing reviews, but when I find a book that really takes me into their world, then I do. For me, this is one of those books where I am present with the characters. It is magical when that happens.Looking forward to book two.Magic fascinates me. Within these pages, magic is not felt through the story. Magic is told. I really do enjoy feeling the magic, the body, texture and the difficulty in mastering. The author fails to bring magic alive. Instead Alex (the main character) learns from a book and a statue that comes to life. That said, perhaps in book two the connection will be better made.
