Publisher's Summary

Horror stalked the Four Lands as the Ildatch, ancient source of evil, sent its ghastly Mord Wraiths to destroy Mankind. Only Druid Allanon held the magic power of wishsong that could make plants bloom instantly or turn trees from green to autumn gold. But she, too, was in mortal danger, and Ildatch waited for Brin to fall into his trap.

    "The Wishsong of Shannara"

    With a gentle innocence the author presents an adventure into a land of fantasy ;a world of Magic, Druids, Elves, Half-Men and odd creatures, all in an era of near middle earth. The story well painted by its author and narrator draws you in promising not to let you go. An excellent first listen especially for those who are young at heart. A delightful storey! I highly recommend this book!

    "Great book, but questionable abridgement"

    I love Terry Brooks and the Shannara series. Charles Keating, as always, does a great job with this title in both narration and character voices.

    Now for my one pet peeve. Garet Jax is probably one of the most well known and well liked characters in the world of Shannara. To leave his final battle out of this abridgement is darn near unforgivable. I mean, not a single word about it, except at the very beginning. I realize they try to trim these versions down to 6 hours, but come on. At least give Garet Jax a few more minutes. He deserves it.

    "Wonderful!"

    This was a great audiobook with Keating doing the narration. Even though it is abridged, it is worth a listen for anyone who loves the Shannara Trilogy or for those who just want to get the general gist of the 3rd book with great detail.
