9780345274441: The Sword of Shannara

Living in peaceful Shady Vale, Shea Ohmsford knew little of the troubles that plagued the rest of the world. Then the giant, forbidding Allanon revaled that the supposedly dead Warlock Lord was plotting to destory the world. The sole weapon against this Power of Darkness was the Sword of Shannara, which could only be used by a true heir of Shannara--Shea being the last of the bloodline, upon whom all hope rested. Soon a Skull Bearer, dread minion of Evil, flew into the Vale, seeking to destroy Shea. To save the Vale, Shea fled, drawing the Skull Bearer after him....

About the Author:

Terry Brooks was a practising attorney for many years, but now writes full time. His first novel, THE SWORD OF SHANNARA, remained on the New York Times bestseller list for 5 months, and this was followed by 13 consecutive bestselling novels.

From AudioFile:

The seminal tale of Brooks's successful fantasy series, THE SWORD is a captivating listen aided in large part by Charles Keating. Keating could read the Oxford English Dictionary and make it sound compelling. Brooks's tale is well crafted and often gripping, as long as you don't mind the blatant Tolkien influence. Story line, characters, and the battle between good and evil are all similar, but the author's gift of clear writing and the reader's ample vocal gifts combine to create an audiobook you may want to keep in your library. The overly convenient ending is a bit boilerplate, but as a modern fairy story, SHANNARA works admirably. D.J.B. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
