Storyline

An Elvish tree, known as the Ellcrys, is dying. The bad news is that the tree has been the only piece of magic that protects the Four Lands from the Demon World. Amberle Elessedil is the only one who can save the tree. But she has to unlock magic that the Elves haven't used in thousands of years. With the help of Wil Ohmsford, she travels to find the lost magic. But it won't be an easy task. Written by Chris Green

What a waste of a good book.
7 January 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The dialogue is downright awful. Elves which should embody some foreign qualities talk like teenagers. The whole TV series is just another show cheaply produced for teens. Instead of making a TV show that could be comparable to Game of Thrones, if done right, they produced absolute trash. The show has few redeeming qualities. I am disappointed Terry Brooks would sell the rights to such trash. The characters are weak because they are something you would find on a show like Twilight. The changes to the story from the book detract from the show instead of adding to it.

The entire show reeks of a small budget. The Shannara Chronicles cannot be done properly unless it is done on a scale that is comparable to Game of Thrones.
