    "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


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When it finally ended


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Sorcerer's Daughter?

    I would have cut the entire book.

    "Is this the same author? Where is Terry Brooks?"

    When the book starts off by changing a character from a gnome to a dwarf it was apparent something was up. Then came the "life partner" crap. Marriage can't happen in this book, only "life partners" of all types.
    I have been a Terry Brooks fan forever, sadly this was the worst book yet & I am not sure how to proceed.
    should have been called "the death of Shannara" instead of the "defenders" of it.

    "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.


    What character would you cut from The Sorcerer's Daughter?

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

    Story
    "Decent, though I was expecting more."

    It was a decent book. Maybe not as good as the rest of his books, but still entertaining. There were of course a few places in the book where I wondered if it was written by someone who casually read the first two in the series. Character and location discrepancies and one character even changed races. I had to go back to the first book in the series to ensure I wasn't losing my mind.

    Story
    "The good, the bad, and the ugly."

    I enjoyed the strong characters and less predictable than most story line. Heroes who are not easily fooled by the villian are refreshing. I was disappointed by the introduction of decidedly hedonistic attitudes and current day popular moral (or lack thereof) trends which have been absent from Brooks' previous efforts. It felt like there was a societal political agenda woven into the story that it could have done without. Overall a good read (or listen). However, Brooks gets his first strike after years of no complaints.
