The Wishsong of Shannara by Terry Brooks
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Mr. Brooks' challenge: write a worthy follow-up to The Elfstones of Shannara.
The next generation of Ohmsfords produces their best fighter yet - the tough-as-nails Brin, who follows in her father's footsteps and goes on another epic quest to save the world. This time, though, the forces of evil will come this close (picture my thumb and forefinger a millimeter apart) to corrupting her beyond repair, should they have her way.
It's the end of the original Shannara trilogy, but not the end of this world, not by a long shot. I've still got a long ways to go on this series. But I really hope that if MTV's Shannara Chronicles comes back for a second season, that they'll base it on this book. It'll be a very nice and welcome change after the first season, the Elfstones adaptation, inevitably reaches its end.
