Publisher's Summary

Although some of the goals to keep Shannara safe had been met, the work of Walker Boh, Wren, and Par was not yet done. For The Shadowmen still swarmed over the Four Lands, poisoning all with their dark magic. Each Shannaran had a special death waiting for him - at the hands of The Shadowmen - unless Par could find a way to free them all with the Sword of Shannara.

    "Awesome!!"

    This is an awesome ending to an amazing story that I can't recommend enough. It takes a little while to make it through all 4 books but the payoff is worth it.

    "Did not disappoint"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Elf Queen was my favorite as she showed strength but the book failed at giving her a happier ending then it could have


    What does John Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    As all good narration, he gives depth and understanding to the charterers


    Any additional comments?

    Lot of filler in the series that was plain boring in the description of scenery and the series could have been much more enjoyable without it and easily combined into three books

    "Repetitive"

    The only issue I had with this book was it seemed as if 90 percent of the story was the characters taking turns being captured and rescued.
    Overall the book had a great story line. But, like I said there was to much capture and rescue attemps.

    "Satisfying conclusion to a well written series"

    I thoroughly enjoyed the Shannara series, especially the 4th and final book. Terry Brooks created a world that was both interesting and very imaginative and characters that had depth and were complex, each dealing with their own inner demons. John Lee is an excellent reader and adds to the overall listener's experience with his stellar performance. The final battle and climax was satisfying and an excellent end to this series.

    "A great finish to a great series"

    Terry Brooks doesn't disappoint in yet another epic series. Pulling so many threads together like the true story weaver that he is, you can't help but pay attention to this diverse story.

    "I'd give it six stars if I could!"

    An amazing story, epic in scope, but as close as a bedtime story. Listen to these amazing books, amazing author, amazing narrator!
