CHARACTERS Straken By Terry Brooks,
Has sent him back into the Forbidding So the Elf City is saved And The Forbidding Remains the Forbidding remains by the EllcrysIn the end Grianne is so thankful for Pen and does something special for Pen since he sacrificed so much to bring her back Grianne and Pen go back to Taneuil and to Pen s surprise Grianne makes a trade for Cinnaminson by offering herself instead so now Grianne is an AeriadI like the reasoning behind Grianne s decision this way she starts a new life where her old liffe will not follow her I think it is agreat ending and a happy ending for Pen now that he has his love of his heart even though he still has a Adult Dyslexia piece of it still left to Taneuil due to his Aunt Grianne It ended they way it should It ended as I assumed it would One of those endings where you know it s going to happen but don t want it to happen Overall great series One of my favorite Shannara uests Brooks does it again with this epic tale 2329 in my Epic Shannara uestExciting conclusion to what has been for me the most consistently entertaining Shannra series to date The dark tone slowly gives way to an ending that was in no way unexpected but mostly satisfying A descendant of Leahlayed no Pakao part in the trilogy though it was stated that uentin Leah from The Voyage of the Jerle Shannara trilogy died 18 years after the adventures in Parkasia which would haveut just shy of 40 maybe he didn t leave an heir I also would liked to have known what happened to the demons Weka Dart and Tael Riverine but I suppose it doesn t matterSix books to go I m feeling too bitter to write a write a roper review but you should know that this rating has nothing to do with the uality of the book The book was awesome the trilogy was amazing the entire story was great And I hated the endingAnd don t mistake the meaning of that The ending of this book is well written and exceptionally beautiful I just hated what happened Don t ever do something like this to me again
Terry Brooks This Was ABrooks This was a difficult book I have read a couple from Brooks before and also the others were not my favourites I know reading a book of a series out of context and not in the right order always is complicated and since I have done this so many times before I try not to judge this at all But this book was very difficult to understand all the terms and happenings that are only hinted at The story is gripping enough and well constructed and I did like it Sometimes it seemed to be too many ages of The Unscratchables prose some spoken word would have lightened up the book also i was not happy that the creature from the forbidding was forgotten in the end and when finally the demon was sent back i saw hope but no too bad anyway the constructed fantasy world is well spun and full of magic and still untold stories I just think that i never really got into this one Since this book had the most activity in it I think I liked it the best If it were any author other than Terry Brooks Irobably wouldn t have liked the entire trilogy as much It felt like a lot of what happened was written in there just to make the books longer To flesh out a trilogy where as one sleeker long single volume would have been much engrossingI never really felt Pen s emotional connection with Cinnaminsin developed felt like I was told what was there and then had to acc.
