Summary

Long ago, the wars of the ancient Evil ruined the world. In peaceful Shady Vale, half-elfin Shea Ohmsford knows little of such troubles. But the supposedly dead Warlock Lord is plotting to destroy everything in his wake. The sole weapon against this Power of Darkness is the Sword of Shannara, which can be used only by a true heir of Shannara. On Shea, last of the bloodline, rests the hope of all the races.

Fantastic

Read the books years ago, but was gripped with audio book. Couldn't stop listening. Terry Brooks is fantastic in either print or spoken. A MUST.

Good Book, Bad Abridgement

This book is very good, I have read it. This abridgement is bad, it elimates most of the character development. The result is that you have a great story that is filled with strangers you hardly know. It makes the abridgment hard to connect with. Brooks is a talented author and very good at developing his characters so you know and love them. This abridgment is a huge disservice to his talents.

Get the unabridged version...

Not a bad reading, but much is lost in the telling with this abridgement of the story. Get the unabridged version!
