With the impending release of Terry Brooks’ latest novel, The Elves of Cintra looming only a The Elves of Cintra by Terry Brookscouple of days away, I thought it was about time to draw a bit of attention towards the very first review I ever wrote for A Dribble of Ink!

Review | The Elves of Cintra

I was pretty stoked to be one of the first (if not the first publication to be able to get my hands on The Elves of Cintra and review it. Terry Brooks is one of the most consistent sellers in the Fantasy genre and a new release by him is always a big even for me! I know some Internet Trolls are a little down on Mr. Brooks, but he’s always been special to me and his two latest offerings (Armaggedon’s Children and The Elves of Cintra) have been some his best novels to date.

So, be sure to check the review out if you’re at all interested in an easy to read novel that mixes Urban, Apocalyptic Fantasy with good ol’ Epic Fantasy! It’s been a while since I posted this (in fact, I often forget that the novel hasn’t even been published despite the fact that the review is several months old!) so I thought it would be a great way to expose some of my newer readers to Terry Brooks!


EDIT: I just noticed that Fantasy Book Critic has posted a review of The Elves of Cintra. Check it out HERE!

    Yeah, I’m looking forward to this. I really enjoyed Armageddon’s Children and love how this is continuing Word / Void.

    I’m also thrilled that Terry decided to expand upon the Word/Void trilogy. He’s doing a bang-up job connecting it to the Shannara mythos and I imagine anyone that is a fan of either will really enjoyed The Elves of Cintra.

    If you liked Armageddon’s Children, I can assure you that you’ll enjoy its sequel just as much if not more!
