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.
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.

When it finally ended
I would have cut the entire book.
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.

What the (FILL IN THE BLANK) happened to Terry Brooks? I can easily say that I have either read or listened to all of the books he has actually wrote and this wasn't him. Perhaps Terry hired a "Ghost Writer" or perhaps he let one of his grand kids write this book. Regardless, I'm requesting a refund. What a waste of a good story line.
I like a wide variety of authors so for now, I really can't say. Time to go shopping for a new book
Simon is a great artist. I love his work so yes.
None, I would cut anyone from the book, it's sadly too late to rewrite and resubmit it. It's just badly written.
Bring back the Terry we know so well and love to listen/read.
I've read the whole series. then listened to the new ones coming out. it's very exciting to listen to them. Hard to stop.
