As always, Terry Brooks very easily designs an additional masterful, grasping tale in the Shannara Heritage. Doing work now in a globe that has a vast, significantly rooted historical past, the guy revolves his stories relentlessly as well as beautifully. Penderrin, another Ohmsford however minus the prodigy (at least in his individual brain) than his forerunners, he embarks over a quest no less legendary: this in order to save his aunt, the once-Ilse Witch. Out of the box Terry's talent, he generates figures utilizing persuasive subconscious angst as well as surroundings in huge, wonderful aspect. Just before reading through The High Druid of Shannara collection, however, if a person has not look into the Heritage of Shannara as well as the older books in the series, I would personally can't help but recommend heading back and reading them initially. Finding the degree of history at your disposal whilst reading through all these novels is going to tremendously improve the experience, even though possibly on their own, they may be amazing tales.

As usual, Terry Brooks effortlessly crafts another masterful, gripping story in the Shannara Legacy. Working now in a world that has a sprawling, deeply rooted history, he spins his tales tirelessly and wonderfully. Penderrin, another Ohmsford but less the prodigy (at least in his own mind) than his predecessors, he embarks on a journey no less epic: this to save his aunt, the once-Ilse Witch. As is Terry's talent, he creates characters with convincing psychological angst and environments in stark, beautiful detail. Before reading The High Druid of Shannara series, though, if one has not read the Heritage of Shannara and the older novels in the series, I would highly recommend going back and reading them first. Having the depth of history at your fingertips while reading these novels will greatly enhance the experience, though even on their own, they are awesome stories.

Starting into the next series-set of the Shannara world, we get started with some familiar faces - which I love. Grainne was redeemed in the previous series, and she is now the High Druid. But not everyone has forgiven and moved on. Her past still haunts her, and it's about to lead to some really nasty magic. Her own druids are set against her, and when she disappears mysteriously, there are none that seem to really care. There are a few people loyal to her though, and they instantly set off on the quest to find Grainne's family and friends from her previous story. There's a lot of building blocks in this story, and not a ton of action. It comes in bits and pieces as the druids try to stop Grainne's friends from finding her or finding out what was done to her. But the Ohmsford family has always been a resourceful one, and they slip through tight places by the skin of their teeth. At the end of the story, we're left with a little knowledge, but not a lot was done. I loved some of the characters, especially the new seer Pen meets on the way. There are betrayals and new friends, wins and losses, everything you might expect in a high fantasy story. I'm liking the groundwork laid so far, and this may be one of my favorite sets of characters yet. I'm excited to see what happens to Grainne next.

A good beginning for Brooks' latest series, maybe not quite up to par with Voyage but still very entertaining.
