One thing I will not understand about this characters, is if he has the type of power that he uses to wipe out the Federation council, why not finish off the Druid at the same time and walk away without any enemies? "Just Cause" seems to be the only answer I can come up with. While I can accept this type of decision making in TV shows, in books it is hard for me to look past. Particularly when the character is supposedly as intelligent and all powerful as he is.
I found the story to be serviceable, if predictable, and at least an ending to the arc of these characters. This comes down to personal preference, but I was very disappointed at how Paxon was left at the end of the story. Despite everything he went through, he essentially ended up with nothing, other than his life. It was strange how Brooks seemed to change the way the character behaved from story to story as this book essentially used Leofur's character to paint him as a more unlikeable character.
Personal tastes aside, this is not the worst Brooks Shannara book written and it does serve to end this trilogy of stories. Word has it that he is only writing one more series and I fear that this may be for the best. While Brook's writing was so important to me back in 1988, I find his style and diction rather basic when compared to the works of modern fantasy authors such as George R. R. Martin
Also, Brooks' use of the word anew throughout the books is just crazy. It's everywhere! "She turned her head anew" "They walked forward anew". "He ran forward anew". (Shaking my head) I am a huge reader who falls into a book and it can seem as if I am there. Brooks' use of anew and the constant repetition of character's indecision makes me suddenly aware I am reading...brings me right out of the book. I am done with Shannara.
No spoilers here, but I found it surprising that he took on the dual topics of gay marriage and divorce -- albeit in his normal rated PG way.
Also surprised by the somewhat abrupt ending and lack of an obvious cliffhanger. Not sure if I should be grateful or furious.
Either way, I look forward to picking things up as part of annual summer ritual with his next book!
