Good plot, good action, want to read more.
I love his whole Shannara series but this is my favorite so far.
The High Druid's Blade didn't quite live up to my expectations. It is not a bad book really. It's just that this story doesn't quite have the same...charisma, as the Wishsong of Shannara or the earlier Shannara books. Many of the characters are not well fleshed out yet, with the exception of two (the villian, of course, and the Druid Starks). The story isn't as complex as other Brooks novel (and that is okay. Not everything has to been a cataclysmic adventure) it does suffer from a few pacing issues.
Despite this, The High Druid's Blade is not a bad book. I do like the idea of Paxon's development into a Knight Errant, and the idea that this is technically a standalone novel (though there are enough unanswered questions that hopefully the next book will help to answer). Definitely recommended for long time fans. A new reader could pick up this book, but he/she may feel a little lost with the references to other adventures.
