Par is definately one of the best characters ever.He has so much conflict within him ,and his love with Damson is so vivid.He developes tons through the series ,as do Walker,Morgan,and Wren.
Even though I'm not the greatest fan of fight scenes,I have to say,Walker's struggle with the Four Horsemen is one of the greatest fight scene's in all literature.It's up there with the Fellowship of the Ring's struggle in Moria,with Risca's battle with the Northland Army,with the spectacular Dave Duncan scenes,with all those scenes in Dragonlance.It's truly the most exciting part in the book.
I was glad to see that Morgan finally got his girl.After his devastating experience with Quickening,it was nice to see him happy.
The Sword of Shannara has been found,the Elves have returned,Walker has become a Druid,all the tasks which Allanon commanded to the Scions of Shannara have been completed.Now Rimmer Dall,leader of the Shadowen plans a fate for each of them.He sets his army against Wren,he sends the Four Horsemen against Walker,and to Par,to Par he sends a fate of terror beyond imagining......................
The Talismans of Shannara is my favorite book period. It is a book of characters getting out of apparently impossible situations and accomplishing their goals. It gives all the other books in the series, (which are admittedly a little disappointing because they don't seem to go anywhere), an endpoint, making the whole adventure complete. Talismans of Shannara is basically a great ending to a great series. It is comparable to the ending in Independance Day or Return of the Jedi. Evil is thwarted, but it WASN't easy. In order to know what's going on I suppose you ought to at least read the other Heritage of Shannara books, but in my opinion, Talismans of Shannara is crowning jewel of the works of Terry Brooks. I'd give it six stars if I could. W.B.R.

This book is a non-stop thrill ride. Terry Brooks shifts back and forth from one part of the tale to the next. There is no pause, no down time and no hesitation. Read morePublished on Jan. 28 2003 by Matthew W.
