garreth Jacks said:has any body read this series of books my brother has and said they where ok but they are diffrent from his other books (terry brooks) what do you think of these books
You're correct. The books he's now writing are prequels tothe world of Shannara and have the Word and Void in there. These current books fit b/w Word/Void and the Shannara series.I1With the Word and the Void I'm getting a sense that this is the events that happened in the last days of the world as we know it. I.e. beofre the apocalyptic event that destroyed the modern world and science. I think this is the forerunner to Shannara.
Two things;By the way if Brooks is a Tolkien ripoff artist, then everyone who has ever had the following in their novels is also a fraud: Elves, Dwarves, Orcs, Dragons, Halflings, Wizards, Trolls, and Necromancers.
Well that would eliminate about 95% of everything written after Tolkien in the Fantasy genre. I don't consider it a ripoff to use the races from Lord of the Rings and I am almost positive that Mr Tolkien himself wouldn't have a problem with it either.
