Summary

Although some of the goals to keep Shannara safe had been met, the work of Walker Boh, Wren, and Par was not yet done. For The Shadowmen still swarmed over the Four Lands, poisoning all with their dark magic. Each Shannaran had a special death waiting for him - at the hands of The Shadowmen - unless Par could find a way to free them all with the Sword of Shannara.

Critic reviews

"If Harry Potter has given you a thirst for fantasy and you have not discovered the magic of Terry Brooks, you are in for a treat." ( Rocky Mountain News)
"If you were delighted and entranced by Michael Ende's The Never Ending Story, you will definitely want to sample one of more of Terry Brooks' books." ( Santa Cruz Sentinel)

Excellent book

As with most of the works by Terry Brooks this is a very entertaining book brought to life by the narrative skills of John Lee. h

Unusual teamwork

The combination of forces will make for unusual bed mates. However, they make great fighting companions.

Awesome!!

This is an awesome ending to an amazing story that I can't recommend enough. It takes a little while to make it through all 4 books but the payoff is worth it.

Did not disappoint

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes

Who was your favorite character and why?

Elf Queen was my favorite as she showed strength but the book failed at giving her a happier ending then it could have

What does John Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

As all good narration, he gives depth and understanding to the charterers

Any additional comments?

Lot of filler in the series that was plain boring in the description of scenery and the series could have been much more enjoyable without it and easily combined into three books

Repetitive

The only issue I had with this book was it seemed as if 90 percent of the story was the characters taking turns being captured and rescued.
Overall the book had a great story line. But, like I said there was to much capture and rescue attemps.
