In the 80's was part of a book club and ordered the Elfstones of Shannara hardbound. Was so drawn into the book I actually sent Mr. Books a letter and surprise-surprise, I received a postcard back from him. I still have it!
Amazon is already promoting the 3rd volume from the Fall of Shannara which should be released by June 4, 2019. I received a notification the book is available for pre-order this week.
If this is really the end of Shannara legacy, I suppose the brothers will not survive this time.
The second book from the Fall of Shannara series is available now for pre-order with signed copies:
Unfortuneltey, this will be much too expensive in Canadian dollars (almost $ 100). *sigh*
Book should be published...
I watched the first episode from the 2nd season last night. The producers took some liberties and changed a bit the story. I'm not sure yet if this is a good or a bad thing.
It was intersting to recognise San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge in an apocalyptique scene full of burned cars.
I received The Black Elfstone yesterday and saw this one will be the first in a four-book set from The Fall of Shannara series. they say, the end of the book should be a surprise for the reader, so I hope to get the time and read it as soon as possible.
Anyone else read it yet ?
I have just counted how many novels of Terry Brooks I have/read so far and realised that exception The Magic Kingdom of Landover seria and Sometimes the Magic Works: Lessons from a Writing Life, I have/read all the others. I must admit as a reader, I'm not so picky and I loved all of them.
I really enjoyed reading all Shannara novels, but there is something that bothers me regarding the age of the druids. Bremen and Cogline lived for thousands of years, Allanon for several hundreds, but all the others not so much. Is this because their role is less important or have not enough...
Enough people have told me to read Brooks that I thought I would give it a chance. On his official site, it has a section for 'new readers' with the recommended places to start.
Does everyone concur with that? That is the best order to read them in?
Really loved the Shannara books from Sword through Voyage and Genesis.
But the series has woefully stagnated, so glad to see Brooks end it gracefully and start something new.
Terry Brook's official forum has been closed, stating that members preferred to stay on other sites, such as Facebook and Reddit:
It's always a shame to see other forums close, especially when we have plenty of room on chronicles for discussions about Terry Brooks. :)
I have been wanting to start reading Terry Brooks for a long time now, but have never gotten around to it. I recently was shopping through Barnes and Nobles, and saw that they had the complete trilogy on sale for eight dollars. I couldn't resist buying it, but I wanted to know if it's okay to...
ELFSTONES at MTV with Jon Favreau / SMALLVILLE Duo
Is anyone else as excited as I am? When I first saw it was MTV, I just knew they were going to rip it to shreds. But Terry will be an Executive Producer, so I have hopes they can do it justice, especially since they're starting with...

Fans of Terry Brooks Shannara series will be pleased to learn that book two in the Lengends of Shannara duology is due to be released next month by Orbit Books.
The new title, The Measure of the Magic is the sequel to the fantasy epic Bearers of the...
I'm looking for opinions on this series. I'm about to finish A Dance with Dragons, and would like some insight on these. I read a lot of Terry Brooks when i was younger (in middle school) and I remember enjoying it. I read the Sword of Shannara series. I've also read Angel Fire east and A...
I just found an old copy "The Wishsong of Shannara". I bought it because it cost £1, and because it had one of those old fashioned hand-draw covers that I adore. Since I have this one, I reckon I ought to buy the previous books in this trilogy and start reading.
But before I do that, tell me...
I just read Witches' Brew. I have the Legend trade paper which is 304 pages.
Looking online I noticed that the hard cover has 400 pages and the paperback has 352.
Do I have some abridged version? There's nothing noting such in the volume.
Terry Brooks Shannara series was my first Fantasy series. I picked up Ilse Witch when I read the back and it said "if you liked Harry Potter try this". I have booked on Fantasy ever since and have read all his Word/Void and Shannara books. Although I have read authors I like better, I have a...
