When I first got The Heritage of Shannara books I thought they'd be pretty good; boy was I wrong. They were the BEST EVER!!!!!!! If your looking for a good, fun,and fast pace fantasy novel then you've found it because they're the best you can buy. I also recomend The Sword of Shannara, The Elfstones of Shannara, and The Wishsong of Shannara. That's the trilogy that comes before The Heritage of Shannara set.
