This is the first Shannara book I have read and I don`t think I `ll read a another one.
This is a interesting story, only the writing is good in some places and not so great in others. As in it go on longer then nessacy. ( )

Many, many years ago I read this. Then I watched season 1 of the TV series - which closely follows the book - and now I re-read it.

Wil Ohmsford, the last of the Shannara bloodline is recruited by Allanon, the last of the Druids, to escort Amberele on her misson to save the Ellcrys, a misson that will ask a lot from them.

It's not a bad story and I enjoyed it, though there are times when it got a little cliched. It's a well worn story and Terry Brooks does a good job of telling the tale. It was worth re-reading. I do intend to continue reading this series. ( )

Just really not for me. ( )

The second book in the series is what the TV series is based off of, but the TV series made some definite changes. Shea, Eretria and Amberle go together to help Eretria with her quest to save the Ellcrys and send the demons back.

Quotations
-Der alte Mann im Schaukelstul summte leise vor sich hin, während er in den in der Dämmerung liegenden Wald hinausblickte. Weit im Westen, jenseits der grünen Mauer der Bäume, die undurchdringlich die Lichtung umschloß, auf der seine Hütte stand, sank die Sonne unter den Horizont und das Tageslicht wurde fahl und grau.-
