Super! I Really Loved It!

by toonboi on Sep 22, 2011

Terry Brooks continues to write really great fantasy that many readers crave, and each and every book Shannara or Landover is overflowing with emotion, adventure, danger, and at times life altering fantasy not like any other. ?Bearers of the Black Staff? brings us 500 years after Hawk shielded his convoy in the mountain valley. Now the magical barrier is gone, the survivors are forced to face the unknown world outside. In a way, it takes me back to ?Running With the Demon?, because it reacquaints us with what being a Knight of the Word is all about and the tremendous responsibility, burden, and sacrifice that come with being a Bearer of the Black Staff. This, the first book in the Legends of Shannara series was what I consider to be toned down quite a bit for Terry Brooks, and a bit slow in a few spots. I expect bigger and better things from ?The Measure of the Magic?, which I?m sure he?ll not disappoint. Overall, this is a must read for any fantasy lover and especially any Shannara fan. Super! I really loved it!
