The critics on The Dark Legacy of Shannara series

 

The design of the Shannara books spreads the story line across centuries, yet also makes it easy for new readers to jump in at any point . . . a grand example of the best of the best in the genre‘ - The Washington Post

 

“This may be the best Shannara novel in years. Highly recommended” – SFRevu

 

Explodes from the first page . . . and the action doesn’t stop until the novel’s cliffhanger ending. . . . Intense and exhilarating . . . The author balances character development with intense action, and he has a gift for creating characters the reader cares about. Brooks is one of the best fantasy writers in the business, and Bloodfire Quest is better than its predecessor – Associated Press

 

Wards of Faerie is the best novel Brooks has written in years . . . It’s full of hair-raising escapes, twists to  established traditions and set pieces familiar to Shannara fans and  characters, interesting magic and monsters and diverse relationships - A Dribble Of Ink
