Book Review: First King of Shannara by Terry Brooks

Shannara Chronicles Prequel

First King of Shannara by Terry Brooks

The adventure to make the sword of Shannara, find the black elf stone and defeat the Warlock Lord. Quite the adventure. I actually should have read this first but it is listed as a prequel to the series. Anyway, you will enjoy this if you like intrigue and battle, magic and might.

In this prequel to The Sword of Shannara, in which many details of the Four Lands’ history are revealed, Druids, horrified by the misuse of magic, have eschewed it in favor of science. But Bremen the Druid studies magic and becomes an outcast on its account. Bremen discovers that an invincible army of trolls is fast conquering all that lay to their south. Before them come the Nazgul-like Skull Bearers, disfigured and transformed Druids who have fallen prey to the dark arts. And at their head is an evil archmage and former Druid called Brona. Bremen realizes that if the peoples of the Four Lands are to evade slavery, they will have to unite. But to defeat Brona, they will need a mighty weapon: the Sword of Shannara.
