Stones?  - posted by Skyler 08-10-2007 17:41
I can't really remember this book, that my father read me.
I remember it was magical and it had a big monster in the book. I found, or I was given theses 3 stones. I always remembered thinking about the book when I was playing with the 3 stones I had.

The Shannara series is a pretty good read, but Elfstones outshines them all. It is a stand alone book, meaning that you do not need to read any other of the Shannara books to read this one. It features the best battle that I have ever read in a fantasy book (including the ones in Lord of the Rings) that lasts for most of the book. Intertwined with the battle is a seemingly hopeless quest where the heroes are persued by a very powerful and persistent threat. Yes, there are way too many similarities to The Lord of the Rings, but it is very diffent in important ways, and it is told with heart. The emotions that it brings out at the end of the book are too much. This guy I know, my friend, yeah, my friend, cried at the end.
