The Shannara Chronicles – The Hype and The Hope

MTV The Shannara Chronicles Coming 2016

Special Report by Agent Z

MTV is planning to launch a televised Shannara series. I imagine my reaction to the announcement was shared by most fans of the popular fantasy novels. MTV, really? The network known for producing reality television was taking on the massive undertaking of adapting Terry Brooks’ novel, The Elfstones of Shannara.

My initial anticipation was tepid given my negative perception of the network’s programming.

Thanks to a friend, I’ve entered the World of Shannara

The Sword of Shannara Trilogy by Terry Brooks

So, thanks to Jason Zapata Wordsmith’s constant badgering, I finally picked up the book that started it all for him; The Sword of Shannara by Terry Brooks. He’s been telling me for years about the series and I finally broke down and bought it and then I started to read.

The book is great and as I didn’t just purchase one book, I purchased the trilogy as a whole, so I will be reading the rest.
