    " I enjoyed the story, but not the writing so much. However I am willing to give the next installment a chance. Hopefully we will see some improvement in the writing and hopefully the story continues along as well as it has so far. "

    " I got about half way through and lost interest. Too much hyperbole, too much deus ex machina, not enough character development, too much journeying for my taste. I guess I'm just not an "epic" fantasy kind of person. "

    " It was a great book. I read it before a long time ago and wanted to read it again, but is it only the first part of the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 5/5/2011

    " As always the fanatasy world of of Terry Brook's was engrossing and thrilling. The pace of the book however I found staggared and only gained worthwile momentum within the last 20 pages, as part of a duology the book certainly leaves you wanting more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robi | 4/15/2011

    " I am a fan of Terry Brooks', and I liked all his novels. The element that I prefer is the environment. Brooks manages to bring the reader inside his world and feel it. Unfortunately I was not very font of the characters this time. "

    " Another saga not impressed with but provides insight following the other sagas "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jamaica | 2/12/2011

    " This is the first of the Shannara series that I read. It was a good way to get back into fantasy fiction, which I have been missing lately. Fun and interesting premise and good characters. I will enjoy tracking down the rest of the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/11/2011

    " A slow starter for me that didn't really get my attention until the last 50 or so pages. But I'm sure the massive amount of set-up in the first book will yield great story in the next installment of the series. Full of what Brooks does best, including the cliffhanger ending! "

    " This is just one book in a number of series tying the Word & void series together with the Shannara series. Terry Brooks in my opinion is an incredible author and to have him tie these to story lines together is a great work in itself. I highly recommend all of his works. "
