"The riveting conclusion not only to the Fall of Shannara but to the entire Shannara series--a truly landmark event, twenty-nine books and forty-three years in the making. Bringing a conclusion to an epic that has spanned centuries is a vast undertaking, but Terry Brooks is entirely equal to the challenge. As the Four Lands reels under a brutal invasion from across the sea, spearheaded by a nation determined to make this land their own, our heroes must decide what they will risk to save the integrity of their home. For as one group remains to defend their homeland, another undertakes a perilous journey across the sea to the homeland of the invaders, carrying with them a new piece of technology that could change the face of the world forever. For both groups, the stakes could not be higher. For those who remain, one of their key allies has been banished to the Forbidding: a demon-filled prison from which there is no escape. And the one who sent him there now stalks the land with a fearsome demon at her side, determined to seize what power she can. While across the sea, a small band of heroes has been shipwrecked far from the land they seek. Can a young girl free her mentor in time to stop an invasion? And can a strange new science reach a foreign shore in time to alter the fate of two nations...providing the device even works? Filled with twists and turns and epic feats of derring-do--not untouched by tragedy--this is vintage Terry Brooks, and a fitting end to a saga that has gathered generations of readers into its fold"--… (lisätietoja)

With about 120 pages to go, I couldn't help but think that this series of books in particular could have been longer. I wanted more, only because after reading all 32 books in the Shannara series, I was desperately clinging to the notion that there would be more to it.

I think with this much history and weight behind it, I was hoping for something a little more grand, but what I read was really satisfying. The ending scene, in particular, felt really poignant and touched upon the magic vs. science theme present in almost every Shannara book.

There were a few shocks, in particular the Behemoth's fate in Skaarsland was really, really well done and I couldn't help but feel I was there watching along with Shea. Ajin and the Skaar were really a interesting new race, far more than the usual dark evil lord wanting to take over everything.

The section in the Forbidding was really, really strong. Easily my favorite part of the book. Brooks' does a fantastic job making you live in this disgusting world and fear all the creatures that live in it. We've seen the Forbidding before a bit, but not really like this.

I still wanted more! Maybe another few pages acknowledging all the major players in the Shannara history, but I wager that's just my nostalgia creeping in.

This is my most rambly review ever. If you're reading this and want to know it's good, or should you read it? - I wouldn't necessarily recommend Shannara to just anybody, but if you're new to fantasy, Shannara is a great place to start. And if you're fantasy fan, this is like fantasy comfort food. And if you're a Shannara fan, you already know the answer. ( )

Some people went places and did stuff. They had some straightforwardly overcome obstacles, unless they died of stupidity. I do so hope this is truly the last book. ( )

Solid!

The Shannara series. Wow! I remember reading Sword of Shannara when it came out in 1977. I was giddy with the newness of it all. And down through the years I’ve eagerly tracked the Shanarra stories. Not all appealed to me but when you're a fan you carry on. Now here we are at the last Hurrah! In this fourth episode of the Fall of Shannara we come full circle.
Of course there's magic, intrigue and adventure, old memories, descendants from the original crew encompassing new twists.
A fitting conclusion to Brooks' Magnum Opus, the Shannara sagas. We've come a long way from that first novel.
