    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.

    "Excelent Addition to the series"
    Overall

    I don't find the detailed descriptions and background uninteresting as others have reviewed, it helps make a full bodied story. Characters are well developed, and the story fits nicely as a prequel to the series. Listening was a true pleasure.

    Psychologist Dr. Alex Delaware confronts a killer who takes as much pleasure in matching wits with the police as in robbing human life. A diplomat's retarded daughter is murdered on a school field trip. The girl's father denies the possibility of a political motive, leaving LAPD detective Milo Sturgis and his longtime friend, Alex Delaware, stymied. When another killing occurs, Alex finds himself ensnared in one of the most menacing cases of his career.

    What made the experience of listening to Survival of the Fittest the most enjoyable?

    Not the best of Kellerman's work, but a good part of Alex's story. As always, reading by Mr. Adams is top notch. I enjoyed it, I think I may be a bit spoiled by some of the others in the series. Dont miss it if you like the series; but dont judge the series by this story.


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

    A bit predictable, no real surprises. An attempt at suspense but it lacked something many of Kellerman's others have.


    Have you listened to any of Alexander Adams’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not the star of the series, but not bad either.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not quite all of it; but I did look forward to getting back to it.

    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!"
    "A Great Story"
    Overall

    Well worth a listen. Definitly get the unabridged version (too bad audible doesn't have the 2nd book unabridged, had to order it elsewhere, perhaps this has been fixed by the time you read this). Well developed characters, a good plot with lots of detail and surprises. One of my favorites, I'm looking forward to the rest of the series.
