High Druid of Shannara #3
the conclusion. Pen rescues his Aunt Grianne[the former Ilse Witch] from the Forbidding. She dissolves the Druid Council and re-establishes it with young druids. She then goes to the Tanequil and exchanges herself for Cinnaminson.
Wide open for future novels tho. Enjoyed this novel enough to buy all 3, lol
Angel Fire East
Word and the Void #3
Final Battle of John Ross, Knight of the Word. Finds a gypsy morph, powerful wild magic, and must figure out how to use it for service to the Word.
He dies, but it becomes a baby in Nest Freemarks body.
I could only read a couple of chapters at a time. Sets up perfectly for the upcoming Armageddon’s Children. As a whole, this whole Word & Void series was depressing. The Word creates, the Void destroys. The Word has no hope of ever getting rid of the Void, but the Void feeds on the thot of destroying the Word. I’m sorry he’s tying this into his Shannara series, but it was inevitable I guess.
High Druid of Shannara #2
82 / 3 stars
gets a bit more heavyhanded in the philosophy department. Reminds me more of the Word & Void series. I feel like he created great characters in Jerle Shannara and now has degraded them by placing them in this story. I don’t plan on buying this trilogy as of now.
A Knight of the Word
Word & Void #2
this was even more depressing than Running with the Demon. The Word is not even trying to prevail, but simply to hold a vanguard action against The Void. Dualism is a terrible worldview, especially Terry Brooks variety.
