Robert Jordon, particularly his earlier books (and now the new RJ/BS hybrid)Who are some of your favourite authors Jaglover??
I agree totally. Hands down for me, his Word and Void novels are the best ones he has written.I agree completely with these statements. I have read all of the Shannara series up through the "High Druid of Shannara" series, and I still have to say that SoS was the worst. It almost felt like a chore to read until about chapter 10 or 11....and it still didn't pick up much after that.
For fear of sounding like I am just trying to bash Terry Brooks, I must add that while I found the Shannara books to be mediocre, I did like his Word and Void series. Running with the Demon and Knight of the Word were definitely better than Shannara.
And I agree, the cover art of the books was definitely the best part
Yes, you can. The first three books in the series -Can one start the series from Elfstones of Shannara? I find the first book to be a bit of a drag.
