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?

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.

A good read but the audio book has some mistakes

Peace talks between The Federation and The Druid Order are interrupted when an attack is launched and it appears The Druid are responsible, but are they? Journey with the small Druid party as they make their way back to Paranor through dangerous terrain. They are being hunted by Federation forces. Will any of them make it back alive?

I found this to be a good read. The only complaint I have is some inconsistency between the Kindle version and the Audible version. One of the secondary characters, Oost the Druid Weapons Master, is described as a Gnome in the Kindle book. In the Audible book he is said to be a Dwarf. That bugged me quite a bit bit as I like to read along in my Kindle book while listening with Audible at the same time.

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.

as usual loved another book by Terry Brooks. he is

Terry Brooks is definitely omastar of the mystical genre. it is truly amazing how in book after book he can create so many characters that you care about as if they were close friends or family members you love.
