Product Description

Review

"Terry Brooks displays the sure hand of a master. Bearers of the Black Staff is filled with iconic characters and heroes not diminished but made human by their flaws. A finely-wrought tale of sacrifice, adventure, betrayal, magic, loss, and a world on the precipice."--Brent Weeks, author of The Way of Shadows

What's to not like :)

I have been enjoying the saga started so long ago by Terry Brooks with the Sword of Shanara. And now we get to see the process of how an epic fantasy setting that began so long ago, and actually evolved out of our own real world, came to pass.

I have yet to dislike a single book ever written by Mr Brooks.

I read a Terry Brooks Novel a long time ago and wasn't that impressed, so I thought I would give him another chance with this book which I got for $3. Its a good book but I would not recommend it to a connoisseur reader of fantasy or science fiction, more suited to people who like the Harry Potter series of fantasy.

My husband enjoyed reading this book.
He has read many books that Terry Brooks has written, and he enjoys them all the time.
