The best book of The Orgininal Shannara Trilogy, this one goes out with a bang and some more unique storylines. I loved how the wishsong came about because of events in book 2 and that the decendents are the ones that pay the price of our decisions (life lesson anyone?). I also enjoyed how similar the siblings were, but at the same time those similarities came across in different ways to make the very unique.
There were still some very classic fantasy elements worked into the story. We have our group of heroes thrown together by circumstance, all powerful evil magic bad guys, and power and redeption comeing from the most unlikely of places.
A great way to finish the first part of this series.
