Terry Brooks was one of the first authors I read as a teenager, and between Magic Kingdom for Sale–Sold! and The Sword of Shannara, he helped hook me on fantasy. Flash forward a couple of decades and Brooks is a hugely successful best-selling author and an executive producer behind the adaptation of his series, MTV’s The Shannara Chronicles.
The Shannara Chronicles
The Shannara Chronicles is a surprising new series that goes against any expectation I might have had, delivering a story and characters that feel alive and visceral, while maintaining a reality that is something like a Brothers Grimm fairy tale come to modern life.
