All this, however, is just a general overview of the present-day Terry Brooks. This book in particularly, while not his worst or most boring, is an interesting study in everything that bothers me about the later Shannara novels. The first specific thing that really bothers me about this book is a repetition of a theme from the first book in this trilogy "The High Druid's Blade": The kidnapping and mental/physical torture of a female character. The first time it was disturbing, the second time it was gratuitous.
The other thing is the... well I don't even know how to phrase it. "Anti-love story" might be a good name for what happens in this novel. We're basically reading an emotional affair that happens behind a character's back, and it's... not fun. Ultimately, the problem with "Later Brooks" is that there's never any real sense of victory at the end of his books. I don't know if he's trying to be grim or realistic or morally ambiguous, but I don't enjoy finishing a book and having this sick feeling. It really started in "High Druid of Shannara" and its only gotten worse from there. We're not even making hard trades of one person's happiness for another, people are just miserable by the time a Shannara trilogy ends now.
I'm one of those people.
In the end, I felt as Paxon Leah did, sitting on my bed wondering, "WTF just happened???"
Thanks for selling out Terry Brooks. I may now just trash my Shannara books altogether.

The Sorcerors Daughter kept me reading right through until the end.
I have read all of Terry's books and I only hope he doesn't think he is too old to write more.
Write more please, Terry and all the best to you from Derry.
