    "not my favorite"

    I'm a big fan of Terry Brooks but I've got to say I felt like someone else wrote this book. the names and settings were all familiar but the writing style seemed forced and lack luster. I could not get into the characters. he spent too much time in the head of the one character to the point of annoying me. the saving grace was that the voice actor was very good.

    "What Happened Terry?"
    What would have made The Sorcerer's Daughter better?

    Terry Brooks is by far my favorite storyteller. So, it is so sad to see such a disappointing series, with this book being the worst of the three. This series and book are full of uninteresting and boring characters, extremely predictable plot, and painfully awkward development of falling in love. So, we as Shannara fans get to go from truly awesome villains like the Warlock lord, Findo Gask, and Tael Riverine to a pathetic villain like Arcannen? The druids are now a bunch on pansies. I think Allanon or Walker could have singlehandedly taken out the entire druid order. I know I’m being a bit harsh on this book and series, but as I’ve said, Terry is my favorite storyteller, and having read all of his books multiple times, I know he can write a much better series. Perhaps he phoned this one in.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    More Terry Brooks

    "let down"
    What could Terry Brooks have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Story line and characters were not up to the level that I am used to getting from Terry brooks. I really didn't like any of his main characters.

    I really didn't like any of his main characters.

    "Series ok, Final book disappointing..."

    I was disappointed in the use of magic, the antagonist and the shallowness of the plot. It was like a glancing blow next to the depth of the Elfstones or the Wishsong. Terry Brooks is one of the best story tellers in the fantasy genre, but this series, especially the third book, lacked the depth of character and of plot that previous Brooks books have always had. Very little true emotion, and what felt like way too much introspection about emotion. Also I was annoyed by the emphasis on same sex relationships and the overt focus on life partnership as opposed to marriage. This is the first I have noticed Brooks disregard traditional values, which bums me out. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and point of view, including authors, and here is mine: it felt forced, unnatural and didn't add any real value to the narrative. I hope in future projects Terry sticks to defining his characters by their many actions and not by one dimensional stereotypes.
    Either way Brooks has brought me so much enjoyment over the years that I will still buy all his books. I look forward to the next series and hope I'm not disappointed.

    "OK follow up"

    It was a good story but not at the level of the earlier ones. It seemed almost forced at times, like the author knew the end but had trouble connecting it to the start.

    "Loved it overall but could be better."

    Pro's: Great ending to a trilogy. Climax was very pleasing to the ears. Terry Brooks pulled off another trilogy that I adored and brought another aspect to the four lands that didn't involve a demon invasion, which was relieving. Overall I would recommend this book to read/listen to.

    Cons:It was difficult at times to understand which character was speaking unless it was a female character. The only real distinguishable voice that could be heard from one male to another was Arcanan Rye. I found myself at times wondering "Who is talking right now?" Terry Brooks could've done a lot more with the journey of Leofur and Emric. It was extremely bland and dull until their climax, most of their conversations consisted of "You don't understand what's going to happen" and her response of you don't know that. All those chapters spent on explaining how Leofur doesn't understand could've been spent on triumphs and tribulations spent on the journey.
