    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"
    "Terrible Narrator"
    Overall

    This book has no more originality than the previous 2. The Shannara Series is Brooks own version of The Lord of the Rings, so nothing really outstanding there, but most offensive is Scott Brick as a narrator. He has maybe 3 voices to use and is waaay over dramatic. Killing most scenes with his poor dialogue technique. I am unable to distinguish between many of the characters due to his lack of skill. He needs lessons from Jim Dale or even Gerard Doyle. SAVE YOUR CREDITS, it's not worth it.

    The High Druid of Shannara trilogy draws to a thrilling close as a young hero nears completion of his trial by fire, a banished ruler fights for her life in a wilderness of dread, and forces of darkness and light square off in a battle unto death for the right to absolute rule. Prepare to be spellbound by the masterly hand of best-selling legend weaver Terry Brooks, conjuring at the peak of his skills.

    Theo says: "Finally!"
    "Horrid Narrator"
    Overall

    Terry Brooks story seems to follow much of the same plot as the rest of the Shannara series, which of itself is a little tiresome. What makes this particular series absolutely horrid is the narrator, and his lack of talent to pronounce words the same way throughout the story. He constantly alters the way he'll pronounce one name or refers to something in the story then pronounces it completely different a bit later. All male voices are the same...whiney and gruff when doing all characters that are not of the "human race". Scott Brick was the narrator in the first book of this series, and he was tolerable...Paul Boehmer has no talent for making the books enjoyable. I wish they wouldv'e paid an extra $50.00 dollars to get someone else...anyone else. Save your credits. *the narrator on the abriged version is much better, and does a wonderful job, however, it is also much shorter and doesn't delve into the story as deep.*

    The impossible has been accomplished. The Lord Ruler - the man who claimed to be god incarnate and brutally ruled the world for a thousand years - has been vanquished. But Kelsier, the hero who masterminded that triumph, is dead too, and now the awesome task of building a new world has been left to his young protégé, Vin, the former street urchin who is now the most powerful Mistborn in the land, and to the idealistic young nobleman she loves.

    Robert says: "It keeps getting even better"
    "Brandon S. has real talent"
    Overall

    I have enjoyed all of the books in this series, and hope that Brandon has a long and successful career. This book keeps to the story, and moves along at a good pace. With an original plot. Well, worth the price.
