Good Book

A good read though, though very different when compared to the normal fantasy shannara series, this is more sci fi fantasy set 10- 30 years from now!. It has lots of references to the word and void, a magic not used in any of the later books.
The reading is ok but I wish we could get one reader per series.
But still a good book

Armegeddons Children

I like the way Terry Brooks is using this Series to bridge to other sets of his works. The references to the TWTV series although quite frequent are not enough to leave someone who is yet to read TWTV in the dark. My only gripe with purchasing this book is finding out that Audible have parts 1 and 3 but not part 2. Come on Audible if people are going to start a series in audiobook format they need to be able to finish it in audiobook format without having to purchase hardcopies in between.
