Blast From the Past
I don't know about you, but I enjoy delving into the odd blast from the past here and there, especially when it comes to treasured favorites.
Back in 1979, I read my first ever Terry Brooks novel, The Sword of Shannara, and was hooked. The sequels followed, as did a separate The Word and the Void trilogy.
Little did I know at the time how the two worlds would blend...especially as time and circumstance took me away from this particular writer for many years.
Long story short?
I recently got back into the Shannara series, and found it has expanded way beyond anything I ever realized from the 1970's. What's more, I was delighted to discover Terry had laid the seeds for the Shannara saga through The Word and the Void adventures.
Over the past few weeks, I completed the latest in a run-up to the original story I read all those years ago. Bearers of the Black Staff, and A Measure of Magic.
Here's what I thought.
I really enjoyed the way Terry Brooks wove the world as it is now into what it becomes in the far distant future. See what you think...there's plenty to keep you busy.
