Review by crackberrybooks
Better than Sword of Shannara, faster paced and a bit less repetitive. Much more fun to read. I loved this one, nasty demons, courageous elves, you can’t go wrong. Old skool fantasy at its best.There are a lot of similarities to Sword, which I know wind a lot of people up..bringing forth nasty murmurs about forumlae etc, and a lot of the comparisons to Tolkien are very unkind. Ignore the Tolkien thing, yes in a lot of ways you can almost feel Brooks trying…and failing…but so many others do it too, and what the hell, if you’re going to aim for something aim high, if you don’t get there you’re still higher up there than if you hadn’t made the effort I reckon.It’s a fast, fun, fantasy read. Nothing too intricate or challenging, but hey, that’s the best bit sometimes.
