Publisher's Summary

Taking place a generation after The Talismans of Shannara, The Voyage of the Jerle Shannara: Ilse Witch opens with the discovery of a body. Only two people understand its significance: Walker Boh, the last of the Druids and a familiar character to Shannara fans, and the Ilse Witch, a beautiful but dark young woman who wields a potent magic. Thus begins the voyage of the Jerle Shannara in a race to uncover the mystery, which of course includes an unusual cast of characters: an Elven prince; a monstrous creature who is part man, part enigma; and a young man who may unknowingly hold the key to the success of the mission. For he is the only one who can call upon that ancient talisman, the Sword of Shannara. For the legions of fans who've been captivated since the very first Shannara novel, this eagerly anticipated new chapter in Terry Brooks' signature series will be reason to celebrate. The Voyage of the Jerle Shannara: Ilse Witch offers an intriguing invitation to plunge again into the enthralling world of the best-selling Shannara adventures.

Terrible Narrator

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I bought this not realizu=ing that it was an abridged copy.
I hate abridged books!

Has The Voyage of the Jerle Shannara turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, only the narrator.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I felt like I was listening to a Saturday morning cartoon. Only those sound more realistic.

Any additional comments?

Stop putting out abridged copies and find a narrator that can do the job correctly
