Absolutely fantastic. Everything I have come to expect from Terry Brooks, I can't wait to read the next book in this group.

My only complaint with Mr. Brooks is the length of time between new books! I love his whole story line, the characters, (especially gnomes) and the way he picks up the story where he leaves off from book to book.

I have read all of Terry Brooks books so when this one came out I couldn't wait to get my hands on it and read it and I wasn't disappointed. (Except for the fact that it is the first of a trilogy so I'll have a long wait to find out what happens in the end since the second two books haven't been written yet, ha ha.) This book is full of the usual Terry Brooks magic, mystery, mystic creatures and everything that I hoped it would be as in his previous novels. I do have to admit that I thought this book was a little too short, but that is in part due to the fact that the book leaves you hanging without ending until the next book comes out. However, if you love Terry Brooks novels or if you just want an excellent read, I'd highly recommend reading this book.

I have been a fan of Terry Brooks since the beginning. I have yet to be disappointed by one of his books. One of the few authors I automatically by when a book is available.

I have read fantasy on and off for about 48 years. Terry Brooks is one of the top 5 writers in that field. Wards of Faerie is again one of his better books. You cannot out guess his plots. And if you do, he will change it. He has went back in time and done what he does best. You will not be sorry if you read this book. Though You might have a hard time waiting for the rest of this book to come out. This is another great adventure.

This is the first Terry Brooks novel I've ever read and maaaan was I in for an adventure! Although I really enjoyed the book, I believe having not read her other series did leave me missing some character connections and world building. However, I still connected with the characters, LOVED the world, and enjoyed every moment learning about the Wards of Faerie. Our main character, Aphenglow Elessedil, is an elf who disgraced her family by joining the druid order, a powerful group of mages from all genetic backgrounds who pride themselves on maintaining a balanced relationship between all creatures in the Four Lands. An outcast in the home of the elves and with only her sister and great uncle to guide her, Aphen begins her tale uncovering a secret of the past, one that may lead her to a great lost power. This book was extremely well-written and developed. The characters were relatable and although there wasn't a lot of romantic relationship development between characters, but the tension and possibilities are set up for in the next books. This book was told from several characters perspectives - but that didn't begin for quite a while in the book. I was very used to hearing from Aphen, and although I appreciated the other perspectives and they were necessary for the development of the novel, I missed her voice. That being said, I did enjoy some of the secondary characters and the developments throughout the story, I guess I just felt as though not enough was uncovered. This was a book that I think can't be a stand alone...you NEED that second book to learn anything about the first and that's why it is missing a star. I think I would know more about the world and what is happening had I read Brooks' other books, however as the first book in the series, not much evolved from the initial problem. Some things yes - just not enough to make me satisfied. Although I don't read a lot of epic fantasy, I love a great one and Wards of Faerie is pretty darn great. *This book was provided by Del Ray Publishing via NetGalley in return for an unbiased review*
