    " All becoming a bit too formula driven from here on. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tom Rowe | 2/12/2014

    " I loved the Heritage of Shannara series. This was a great ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ariel | 1/31/2014

    " This book was incredible! The last book of the Heritage of Shannara, it fulfilled the whole series and provided a satisfying end! It is an amazing work of fiction and I was engaged every step of the way! I finished it very quickly because I simply could not wait to find out what happened next! I would highly recommend this book and the three before it to others! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jamie | 1/26/2014

    " I loved the way this series started and ended. I did feel like the middle two books dragged a bit. I like introspection as much as the next person, but faaaaaaaar too much in books 2 and 3. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roger | 1/16/2014

    " A fitting close to the quartet that is the "Heritage of Shannara". Once again, Brooks characterizations are among the best in the epic fantasy tradition. Walker Boh becomes fully realized as the inheritor of Allanon's powers as a druid, Wren Ohmsford fully steps into her role as the Queen of the Elves, Par and Coll Ohmsford are reunited as brothers, and the entire group confronts the looming evil of Rimmer Dall and the hordes of shadowen plaguing the Four Lands. Looking forward to hitting the next trilogy in the series, "Voyage of the Jerle Shannara." "

    " Love all the Shannara books. They are all fabulous. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ed Schwartz | 1/9/2014

    " Typical Shannara book: The last third of the book was very exciting, the the rest was somewhat boring. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patrick Leitzel | 1/4/2014

    " I strongly believe terry Brooks is the one who started my love for fantasy, and with this book nonetheless. i read it for the first time in middle school (possibly even 4th grade to be honest) and after that i found all the Shannara books i could as well as my love for reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeffery Moulton | 12/29/2013

    " This was a fitting conclusion to the Heritage of Shannarq series. It wrapped up the four storylines very effectively and had an exciting finish. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Gigio | 12/1/2013

    " Alla fine Brooks c'e' riuscito e della Saga di Shannara ha lasciato solo macerie, abusando anche della pazienza dei ultimi lettori che ancora la seguivano. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Shaffer | 10/25/2013

    " Shady Vale is the perfect starting point for the beginning of adventure. The Ohmsford's and the druids are our last line of defense against a plot to destroy the world. I love the way Brooks blends fantasy and modern sci-fi into his environments. This is a great series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/20/2013

    " This was another good one. I still liked the last book better, but this was a good one. It had some twists and turns I wasn't expecting, then it got predictable. Still a fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 AndrewP | 1/11/2013

    " Better than the last one, but not the spectacular ending I would have liked. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Branwen | 11/26/2012

    " This was the last book in the Heritage of Shannara series, and it was a great ending! All loose ends tied up, all mysteries revealed, all characters fates decided. Loved it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 8/2/2012

    " A wonderful book...it's the lesser of the three stories in the heritage series, in my opinion, but still an amazing book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robyn Brown | 7/31/2012

    " Will be a Terry Brooks fan til the day I die! Suspense, fear, hope, triumph, timelessness~ just got so tired of the sewers though..... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sloan | 7/21/2012

    " Great finish to the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allison | 4/28/2012

    " The expected ending to the series. No revelations or surprises here, but I wouldn't call it disappointing. It delivers more or less what was hinted at in the previous books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Forcebolts99yahoo.com | 4/12/2012

    " Walker and wren are great characters and make the book. It is the 4th in the series and the magic is better than before, mainly because it is harder to call up. What a terrific book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Clint | 11/27/2011

    " Good close to a new generation of Shannara stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sa'id Cortijo | 9/9/2011

    " Good book to conclude the series. I would've liked more form the ending. New character in every book, the ones introduced in this book were okay. Not too much to say about this book, but pretty good ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alan | 8/25/2011

    " Like the rest of the Shannara series, it's a fun light read. Definitely not a classic though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teresa | 7/28/2011

    " This was a very engaging series to read. One of those books that takes place in a land like Lord of the Rings land but actually manages not to borrow too much from Lord of the rings. Not sure I'll ever need to read it again, but definitely good to pass the time with. "
