Terry Brooks – The Wishsong of Shannara


Fans of the Shannara epic will revel as the forces of good battle an evil book, the Ildatch, which sends the Mord Wraiths to destroy mankind. To overcome this dark force, the Druid Allanon needs Brin Ohmsford, for she holds the power of the wishsong, a magic invoked by singing that can make plants bloom instantly or turn trees from green to autumn gold.

As Brin reluctantly joins Allanon on his dangerous journey, a prophecy foretells an evil plan to trap the unsuspecting Brin into a fate more horrible than death. But she has the help of her brother, Jair, and the protection of Rone Leah, who takes his job very seriously, as the comic rustics, Weapons Master Garet Jax and Slanter the gnome, leaven the fantasy.

Hard to stop listening to to this story. Finally, the series delivers fully developed characters who have to overcome internal struggles against fear, lack of confidence, desire for ultimate power and fight a galant battle to save the 4 lands. The female character, Brin, is more than window dressing and wields terrific power. Jer, brother, delivers powerful support in bringing her back to herself. The supporting character are well developed also and it is easy to care about what happens to them. Great fantasy but also grounded in the earthiness of its characters. I think you will love it.
