Novels [1]

Shannara

Terry Brooks provides two different reading orders:[2]

  • First time readers
  • Those returning to the series

A warning from the site:

Caution: It is important to make a note right now for new readers. If as a new reader you read the novels in chronological order, you will be significantly spoiling your foray through Terry's work. First King of Shannara, despite being a prequel to The Sword of Shannara, is best read after you have finished The Heritage of Shannara series.
