This is a good book, but this is an abridged version. It's good, but the complete book is better.

It's an interesting continuation of the Sword of Shannara series. You get to find out what happens next. Lots of adventure and creativity. This is the first book of the Heritage of Shannara series and picks up with all the Ohmsford descendants.

Three hundred years have passed since the death of Allanon and the Four Lands are sadly changed. The Elves have vanished, and the Dwarves are enslaved. The Southland is now under the totalitarian rule of the Federation and magic is strictly forbidden.

Generations after the events in the The Wishsong of Shannara , the most recent volume in Brooks's bestselling series, grave danger once again threatens the Four Lands. The Federation has conquered Callahorn, the other free men and the Dwarves, forbidding the practice of magic. The Druids and Elves have disappeared, and Shadowenspelling OK?

Although I haven't read this book (somehow ended up with two!), I like Terry Brook's work, and I've read a lot of it. His earlier series, starting with The Sword of Shannara, is very much like The Lord of the Rings series.
