Do you have to have read the first books of Shannara to understand this trilogy? Beau Not necessarily, but you will get more out of this book if you read the original trilogy first The Sword of Shannara, The Elfstones of Shannara, and …more Not necessarily, but you will get more out of this book if you read the original trilogy first The Sword of Shannara, The Elfstones of Shannara, and The Wishsong of Shannara.
There are many references to things that took place in those books. But still, the plot here should make sense, and I find this book better and more interesting than the original trilogy.

Jul 07, Mike the Paladin rated it liked it Shelves: I need a way to rate the book and then a way to separately rate the edition I got.
I have the audio I got from OverDrive and the gain is so low that with the recording turned up all the way, my speakers turned up all the way and going into my computers audio controls and jacking them up all the way I could barely hear it.
Recording value -1 star. The book is a return to the world of the original Shannara trilogy though much later. Hey just because that’s how this whole series started don’t knock it. When you get a good plot idea [or find a good plot idea] like “recovering a magic sword” use it as often as possible Anyway, did you get that?
It’s sort of a multilevel quest. They have to bring back magic to save the world, but they have to find the Sword of Shannara to bring back magic. Well, to find the truth about magic and saving the world. Now if you find that a bit convoluted, “shame on you how dare you criticize a classic work of fantasy”? At least that’s the reaction I tend to get when i express opinions like that. And by the way We just can’t have nice things Not a bad book.
If you get the audio I got, good luck on actually being able to hear it however. View all 5 comments. I first read this book about years ago, but it was apparently so forgettable that I couldn’t remember a thing about it apart from the very bare bones of the plot. Even when I started skimming through it to remind myself of more details so that I could read ereri sequelsI had almost no memory of most of the scenes or even important characters, so I finally decided to reread the whole damn thing.
Perhaps it’s an exercise in masochism to reread something that my mind didn’t think was worth ho I first read this book about years ago, but it was apparently so forgettable that I couldn’t remember a thing about it apart from the very bare bones of the plot.
Perhaps it’s an exercise in masochism to reread something that my mind didn’t think was worth holding on to for barely a few years – yet at the end of it, I was mildly surprised to find that the book is quite engaging.
Sure, the prose is often hilariously awful. Yet, somehow, it’s not a bad book on the whole, and shannaea often be interesting. The basic story – though a fairly straightforward fantasy quest – is decent enough. This table setting takes up half the book, since the stories of each of these three are spread out over the sequels.
A little condensation would have helped the pacing considerably, especially the later parts of this book, which mostly follows Par’s quest to retrieve the long-lost sword of Shannara. The number of scenes in which Par and his brother Coll hide out in dark sheds while waiting for an opportunity to go after the sword are extremely numerous and extremely boring, especially Par’s indecision and second guessing over everything he does.
The few scenes of action that punctuate these hideout scenes are pretty good, though. It’s one thing when others in the rag-tag bunch of misfits, who may not know Par and Coll very well, refer to them shhannara as ‘Valemen’. But when the author himself keeps doing it constantly shwnnara even in scenes where no other characters are present – it gets extremely irritating. A eredu more fleshing out of his background would have done wonders for the character.
It might also have explained how he is directly descended from Brin Ohmsford of Wishsong of Shannara famewhile Par and Coll are not, even though he’s their uncle by blood. It’s the kind of book in which if you think too hard about anything, it all falls apart.
But if you let yourself get lost in the story, it can be quite enjoyable – so much so, that I feel motivated enough to read the second book again, Walker Boh be damned! Jan 05, Roman Kurys rated it it was amazing. A fantastic ride through a good adventure courtesy of Terry Brooks.
I really love how he continually brings up events from the last 3 books in a non invasive manner that flows well with the story and also at the same time serves as a reminder of the times in the past.
This has made it much easier ered get immersed in the story and plenty of times I found hours slip by unnoticed and had to make myself stop reading to go on about my day. This books continues in the manner that made the previous trilogy great. If you’re looking for deep political intrigues of Dune shanara lots of backstabbing ways of the Song of Fire and Ice, this series is not it. However, if you’re looking for a good adventure with plenty of unexpected turns in plot and just pure raw Essence of an adventure, this right here, is worth the time.
I learned to appreciate Brooks’ ability to entwined descriptions, thoughts of characters and dialogue into a seemless story telling that is very immersive and at the same time does t require a dictionary every 5 pages. If you like fantasy genre, this is definitely a great read, and I’ll definitely be reading the next part in my errdi reading adventures ; Roman “Ragnar” I’ve been a fan of shannarq various Shannara series’ for a number of years but the Heritage series is probably my favourite.
The brotherly bond with struggle and love is so well written that I really relate to Par and Coll.
This is, in some ways, your standard sort of “epic fantasy” with elves, dwarves, humans, etc. I’ve read this series before, and I’ll read it ereri In The Heritage of Shannarahe tells g,i large, epic tale over the space of four books. It was quite a departure from the pattern of the previous stories, and, if the first book is any indication, this seems to have worked quite well for Brooks.
As the first book, The Scions of Shannaraopens, the world is a radically different place from the world that Brin and Jair Ohmsford inhabited at t For The Sword of Shannara Trilogyauthor Terry Brooks wrote three separate, but loosely-connected tales. As the first book, The Scions of Shannaraopens, the world is gil radically different place from the world that Brin and Jair Ohmsford inhabited at the end of The Wishsong of Shannara. The Federation, which was once misguided, but still democratic, has become a repressive state that has glj taken gpi the Southlands through conquest, and reedi enslaved the Dwarfs, and seem to be intent on driving them to extinction.
Magic is outlawed, the elves have disappeared, and a new breed of evil, called the Shadowen, has arisen. Ddi very presence is causing the Four Lands to sicken and die. Amidst this situation, the shade of the Druid Allanon enlists the help of former Druid Cogline to persuade the heirs of the Elven House of Shannara to come to the Hadeshorn, where his spirit rests, and hear his requests to them.
He has tried to contact these folks before, in their dreams, and they will not respond. Par Ohmsford is afraid, Wren Ohmsford is ambivalent, and Walker Boh an Ohmsford who took the name of one of his forebears is outright hostile. All of them, even Par who is the most idealistic about the Druids, share a suspicion of Allanon due to his manipulations of their ancestors centuries ago during the Druid’s lifetime.
After much persuasion from Cogline, they eventually go errdi the Hadeshorn to hear Allanon’s spirit talk to them. The shade shows them a horrific future in which the Shadowen rule the lands and the people are mindless cattle to be fed upon and tortured for the amusement of these demonic creatures. He then gives them their tasks — ones that seem impossible to fulfill. But if they don’t accomplish these tasks, the land will be plunged into darkness forever. Terry Brooks really improved his skills as an author in the time between the publication of The Sword of Shannara and Scions.
The plotting is tighter, the characterization is actually somewhat in-depth and not erredi somewhat shallow portrayal of the first book.
La regina degli Elfi di Shannara
I love Swordbut I have to be fair on pointing out the problems from which it suffered. Of course, the romantic subplots are still rather sloppily done, with the one in the current book only working because of the length of the time they two characters are mentioned as near each other being longer.
Brooks isn’t good at writing romances. Ci attempts could be listed under tvtropes.
For me the best part of Scions was that the characters were more believable. They didn’t take up the mission with no qualms, but struggled with it. They have fears, doubts, and uncertainties. In short, they were characters that one can relate to. I appreciated this aspect. That is not to say that Scions was perfect.
To be sure, it had it’s problems. Mainly insomuch as that the story dragged in parts. And the explanation about how the Shadowen developed was understandable, but a bit sloppily explained.
It’s something that you have to think through to get, and have to depend on your knowledge gained from having read the previous trilogy, because it certainly isn’t put all that clearly here.
