*Starred Review* “She” selected Arling among all the Chosen to take the seedling to Bloodfire. However, in the face of this much-needed sacrifice, Arling ran away, turning her back on the peace and prosperity her land has known. For taking the seedling to Bloodfire will result in Arling’s death, a death that would come far too soon in such a young life. By running away, Arling guarantees the eventual fall of the Forbidding, the magical barriers that lock away dangerous and evil creatures. From the first pages to the harrowing ending, Bloodfire Quest, the second installment of Brooks’ newest trilogy, is a thrill ride that will leave readers wanting more. Librarians can only expect major demand from their sf fans, and this volume, paired with the first, might be just the right place to introduce new readers to this fine writer. High-Demand Backstory: For the first time in Brooks career, he will publish a novel every six months until the end of this new series; librarians need to get on the bandwagon and hang on as every new one appears. --Alison Downs
Praise for Bloodfire Quest
“Explodes from the first page . . . and the action doesn’t stop until the novel’s cliffhanger ending. . . . Intense and exhilarating . . . The author balances character development with intense action, and he has a gift for creating characters the reader cares about. Brooks is one of the best fantasy writers in the business, and Bloodfire Quest is better than its predecessor.”—Associated Press
“Shannara fans will delight in Brooks’s sorcerous action, skilled characterizations, and rapid-fire storytelling twists.”—Publishers Weekly
“Brooks mixes things up here with several sharp battle scenes, for which he brings his distinct talent, giving a true grandeur to clashes involving terrifying creatures and powerful magic. . . . A fine middle chapter to Brooks’ latest Shannara adventure.”—Kirkus Reviews
“From the first pages to the harrowing ending, Bloodfire Quest . . . is a thrill ride that will leave readers wanting more. . . . This volume, paired with the first, might be just the right place to introduce new readers to this fine writer.”—Booklist (starred review)
Praise for Terry Brooks
“I can’t even begin to count how many of Terry Brooks’s books I’ve read (and reread) over the years. From Shannara to Landover, his work was a huge part of my childhood.”—Patrick Rothfuss, New York Times bestselling author of The Name of the Wind
“Terry Brooks has been my constant companion over a lifetime of exploring my beloved fantasy genre. I say with all honesty I would not be writing epic fantasy today if not for Shannara. If Tolkien is the grandfather of modern fantasy, Terry Brooks is its favorite uncle.”—Peter V. Brett, New York Times bestselling author of The Desert Spear
“Terry Brooks is a master of the craft and a trailblazer who established fantasy as a viable genre. Not only do I owe him for many hours of reading pleasure, I owe him my job. He is required reading.”—Brent Weeks, New York Times bestselling author of The Night Angel Trilogy
2/3 In a series. Like most of Terry's 3 book series, a very good read, a compelling story. The story takes various twists and turns that I did not see coming.Published 1 month ago by Michael W Herald
