Even though I wasn't satisfied with how it ended, I'll go ahead and give the book five stars. The demons in the book were great! The book didn't scare you but Terry Brooks did a great job of instilling the characters panic inside of you whenever the monsters got near. I enjoyed this book much more than I did The Sword of Shannara. I think this one did a much better job of instilling emotion in the reader than than first. I really love this book and am going to definately read, The Wishsong of Shannara.
