Book Description

Aug. 27 2002 Voyage of the Jerle Shannara
New York Times bestselling author Terry Brooks became the master of epic fantasy with the publication of his legendary debut, The Sword of Shannara. Since then, each new novel in the Shannara saga has brilliantly built upon and deepened the world of breathtaking magic, adventure, and intrigue he created. In The Voyage of the Jerle Shannara—his third enchanting series—he literally took his legions of loyal readers soaring to new heights as a colorful contingent of characters took to the skies aboard a magnificent airship on a quest fraught with wonder and danger.

Now in Morgawr, the quest at last draws to its climactic conclusion, as the forces of good and evil vying against each other to possess an ancient magic race towards an explosive clash—and whatever fate awaits the victor . . . and the vanquished. Harrowing confrontations with the merciless Ilse Witch and the monstrous Antrax have already taken their toll on the intrepid heroes of the Four Lands. But their darkest adversary now snaps at their heels, in the form of the Morgawr—master of the Ilse Witch, feeder upon the souls of his enemies, and centuries-old sorcerer of unimaginable might.

With a fleet of airships and a crew of walking dead men at his command, the Morgawr is in relentless pursuit of the Jerle Shannara and the crew that mans her. For the Morgawr, the goal is two fold: to find and control the fabled ancient books of magic, and to destroy the dark disciple who betrayed him—the Ilse Witch. But the Ilse Witch is already a prisoner . . . of herself. Exposed to the awesome power of the Sword of Shannara, and forced to confront the truth of her horrifying deeds, she has fled deep into her own mind. Now at the mercy of those who seek vengeance against her, her only protector is her long-lost brother, Bek Ohmsford, who is determined to redeem his beloved sister . . . and deliver her to the destiny predicted for her by the Druid Walker Boh.

Once again, Terry Brooks weaves together high adventure, vividly wrought characters, and a spellbinding world into an irresistible story of heroism and sacrifice, love and honor. In Morgawr, fans of the Shannara mythos will find both a satisfying finale and the promise of new wonders yet to come.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

This last installment of the Voyage of the Jerle Shannara trilogy, which chronicles the exploits of the remaining adventurers who set out in Ilse Witch (2000) and staggered through the tribulations of Antrax (2001), may not be up to the standard of bestseller Brooks's early work (Sword of Shannara, etc.), but it proves once again that he puts out books that sell because of their quality, not just because of his name on the cover. As newfound mage Bek Ohmsford and his cousin Quentin Leah rejoin the Free Rover crew of the Jerle Shannara after destroying Antrax, tensions mount, for the Ilse Witch the Rovers' mortal enemy has been revealed to be Bek's sister, Grianne, and is now under his protection as she struggles to break out of the catatonic state induced by her encounter with the Sword of Shannara. Worse, the Druid Walker Boh has died, leaving behind only cryptic instructions to those who followed him into Parkasia, and the Morgawr, who trained the Ilse Witch and now seeks her destruction, has captured elven prince Ahren Elessedil and Ryer Ord Star and is using Ryer's talents as a seer to track the Jerle Shannara and those who ride it. As usual, Brooks leaves at least as many loose ends as he ties up and drops in several surprises. Some references won't mean much to someone unfamiliar with this trilogy or the larger Shannara time line, but otherwise the book's neat and subtle exposition makes it quite accessible to new readers without alienating current fans. Neither groundbreaking nor recycled, this book is simply a good read.

From Library Journal

The fiendish creature known as the Morgawr commands a fleet of airships crewed by mindless creatures who were once men. Her goal: to find and destroy the Ilse Witch and any who try to lend her aid. As the survivors of the Morgawr's attack flee aboard the Jerle Shannara, they realize that they must inevitably confront their foe once and for all. Brooks's conclusion to the "Jerle Shannara" trilogy features characters from previous Shannara series as well as compelling new individuals whose tales hint at more adventures to come. Libraries should expect patron demand for this well-constructed and engagingly written series.

4.0 out of 5 stars I could not put this book down! Oct. 17 2002
This book is the sequel to Antrax, and is the final book in the Voyage of the Jerle Shannara series. With Antrax defeated, the scattered crew of the Jerle Shannara might have hoped that their worries were over. However, the Ilse Witch's mentor, the Morgawr, has come on a quest of his own. Grianne, in a catatonic trance, needs protection, and Bek, with Walker's words ringing in his ears, sets out to reach through to his sister. But, the world is now vastly more dangerous than any of the Shannara crew could have feared.
In this book, Terry Brooks takes the scattered crew, and brings the crew through many and diverse hardships, with danger keeping the reader ever on the edge of his or her seat. I could not put the book down! The reason I did not give it 5 stars, though, is because the story did have a certain disjointed feel to it, with one peril following another, driving the characters along before them, rather than a unified-feeling story.
That said, though, I enjoyed the suspense and action in this book. I think that this is another great Terry Brooks book, one that I would not hesitate to recommend.

1.0 out of 5 stars Time to close the franchise with this stinker Sept. 7 2002
I'm sorry. There is no excuse for an author who has been writing for 25 years in the same series, which started out "borrowing" so blatantly from Tolkien, turning out a book this boring. None whatsoever. In my opinion, while Sword of Shannara was amateurish and embarassing, the young Brooks matured and turned out some pretty decent volumes--Elfstones being, in my opinion, the best of them. But then the cash machine turned on, and he has been sitting in his million dollar Washington mansion turning out formulaic garbage ever since.
When the Jerle Shannara trilogy came out I thought well, this is at least a little different; he is not stealing from Tolkien or Gary Gygax quite so much now. And the first book wasn't too bad. But it has slipped back into the same formulaic, crappy slop that has come to personify Brooks' work.
Others have summed up my thoughts exactly in terms of what the problems are with the plot and characterization of the book. I just add my additional disappointment that rich Mr. Brooks isn't sarified to let it go gracefully. It's time to close the franchise, Terry. You're embarrassing yourself.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fighting For Survival May 15 2004
To me, the pinnacle of this series was the portion dealing with the computer, Antrax, but I also wondered very much how the situation with the Morgawr was going to be resolved and how Grianne, formerly the Ilse Witch, would confront and accept her evil deeds. Bek displays a true tenderness as he helps her in her time of vulnerability.
I was also secretly hoping that at least one elven ranger would make it. But alas, out of principle, they had to be killed off to the very last. And oh yes, I quite understand that Mwellrets have GIMLET eyes. I was reminded of this on numerous occasions. But these were but small points of contention as I observed the corrupt politics of the Federation and wondered how the good guys could possibly survive the Morgawr's fleet. The heroes have failed in their mission in some ways and succeeded in others. Now they have been reduced to raw survival and the reader waits to see how the battered remnants of the crew will ever reach home alive.

5.0 out of 5 stars They Get Better And Better! May 6 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I loved this book. It was such a marvelous way to end one of the best series of all time. I love how Brooks incorporates new and unusual characters in his books. I think that Truls Ruhk was one of the most unusual and most interesting characters I've encountered. I like how he and Bek become such good friends but then he has to decide the fate of his life. I find that there are a lot of feelings of love and hate towards one another in this book such as Bek and Little Red (Rue Meridian) and their love story, and the hate towards Grianne (The Ilse Witch) from the company that has lost so much because of her. Perhaps this book was so intriguing because it summed up the previous two but it seems like with each book Terry Brooks writes, the better they get. I'm waiting impatiently to buy the next one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing! Feb. 16 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have always been a great fan of Terry Brooks. I have read all the books written by him and I loved every one of them. However, this last one to the end of the series was very disappointing. The plot was rushed through and the old-world technology was not even talked about. Two main characters in this book died, and one of them happened to be my favorite. Almost all the characters are from the previous books. For example, Rovers, one Leah, one Druid, two Omsfords, bad guy, elves, and a dwarf. The brave elves will sacrifice themselves, the druid will be stubborn, the druid will lead the Omsfords around, and finally the courageous Leah will protect the Omsfords. I did like the fact that technology was brought into this book. The airships were pretty interesting and Anthrax¡s artificial intelligence was very interesting. It is fun to read about magic versus science, but I still wished that Brooks would emphasize more on how the technology and old-world people were lost. It is too bad that Brooks didn¡t write more about it. The plot was rushed because they didn¡t do anything in Anthrax except wonder around getting scared and then leaving the island. Then, stopping midway from home to fight the bad guy who sucked anyways. Morgawr was just a power-hungry warlock that got defeated quite easily, and he himself was very boring and not interesting. Also, the Isle Witch was barely talked about in this book, she was just a tired and withdrawn little girl that does practically nothing in this book. In conclusion, if you haven¡t read the Isle Witch Series, don¡t read it. On the other hand, if you already read the first two of the Isle Witch Series, go ahead and buy this one, as it concludes the series nicely.
