The Sword of Shannara by Terry Brooks

The Sword of Shannara by Terry Brooks

I remember seeing and hearing about people reading this book, but I never really wanted to read it. It was always so large and the series seemed to have no end. I decided to finally give it a try. I had a pretty difficult time reading it. The descriptive writing was very long and a bit too much for me. I thought that the story line was very predictable as well. It was very clean and appropriate however. I think that if you really like fantasy and long, involved descriptions, then you'll really like this book.

Shea Ohmsford has always lived a simple life in the little valley where he grew up. When a mysterious traveler visits, he discovers things about his past that he never would have dreamed. Now, he is involved in a deadly search for the mythical Sword of Shanara which only he can wield in defense of humanity. Shea must learn and accept the truth about himself or risk dooming the entire world to destruction.
