  • Passes the time, but derivative

    By JClau
    I read this as a child and just reread it. I was stunned to discover it was the closest remake of LOTR I’ve yet read. But, it was still something to read.
  • Great Book

    By ElDude89
    I have never been a big sci-fi person but this book was a great read. Brooks does an awesome job developing the characters and keep the story interesting despite some 700+ pages. Many say it's a LoR rip off but at most I would say LoR was an inspiration. Middle earth and hobbits are boring. This series has much more interesting characters: Druids, Eventine, and the border legion.
  • On the Edge on my sit

    By P Carl
    This book is full adventure around every corner and written so well that you truly believe that you are right in the middle of it all. Not a single page of this book leaves you bored but finds you longing to turn the page to find out what happens next. A must read.
  • I give this book 1,000,000,000,000,000 STARS!!!

    By Shannaraaddicted
    After watching The Shannara Chronicles I just had to read this book!!! I'm not much of a reader so I mean it when I say this book was amazing. I couldn't put it down!!! I read the whole book in less than two weeks!!! Now I am truly looking forward to the rest of the Shannara book!! P.s. Watching the show first made it really awesome to picture the characters and the land and EVERYTHING!!
  • No cover

    By Hawktale
    Great book, wanted to re read it, but it doesn't seem to come with the proper cover, just plain green with white print. Can this be fixed?
  • Still a favorite!

    By Dude! Sweet!
    You know how you can sit and read most books and remember every last detail? 12 years ago I read this book, and even now I'd have to say its one of my favorites! The journey that Shea Ohmsford takes is described so intricately that I would often get lost in the text through my imagination and have to go back and reread it... This is definitely worth your time. Enjoy!
  • Transported Away from my reality

    By Dan Dalluge
    To a wonderful world of fantasy, magic and sword! I loved the entire series. If you have read through the Brooks collection give R.A Salvatore a try as well.
  • Disliked It Even When I Was Young

    By Corpsecorps
    Found this to be a flat, uninvolving Tolkien rip-off. Haven't dared to read a Brooks novel since.
  • Love it!!

    By Spottedpool
    I love it!! Such a great story, and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys fantasy stories.
  • EPIC

    By Tangomm
    One of the first sci/fi fantasy books I read and from that point Mr. Brooks had me hooked
