The Elfstones of Shannara Audiobook Free by Terry Brooks
The Elfstones of Shannara Audiobook is an epic fantasy novel by American writer Terry Brooks. It is the first sequel to The Sword of Shannara and the second book in The Original Shannara Trilogy.
This book expands upon the history of the Elves, which was only hinted at in the preceding story, and follows Wil Ohmsford, grandson of Shea (the hero of the first book) and inheritor of the Shannara Elfstones.
An ancient evil threatens the Elves and the Races of Man. The Ellcrys, the tree of long-lost Elven magic, is dying, unraveling the spell of Forbidding that locks the hordes of Demons away from the world.
Already the fearsome Reaper is free. Only by quickening a new seed in the mysterious Bloodfire can the Ellcrys be reborn and the Forbidding made whole. Amberle, a young Elven girl, is chosen to undertake the quest for the Bloodfire.
The way is perilous, though. Other demons besides the Reaper stalk the land. Amberle will need a protector if she is to prevail, and Wil Ohmsford, heir to the Elven magics of Shannara, is chosen to accompany her.
Amberle’s quest and the fate of the Four Lands will rest on Wil’s ability to unlock the magic of the mysterious Elfstones of Shannara.
Elfstones of Shannara Audiobook Mp3 was definitely my favorite of the original trilogy, in that while it was measurably predictable at points, it was predictable in a way that entertained me. This one is a little deeper and had some really nice magical moments. I was very entranced with the story and was excited to pick it up again each night.
There are some interesting characters in this audio. Some heartache, loss, and sadness. A good amount of magic, intrigue, mystery make this a fun read.
The narration can be jarring, to begin with, but I soon got past it. Scott Brick reading was absolutely fantastic the nation mark Terry Brooks stories are always enjoyable. It’d be nice to have heard more differentiation between the characters in the reading.
