    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here There were some things that I really liked about this book, but there were also some things that just kinda baffled me On the plus side, I liked how this book really focused on the relationships between the different characters, focusing on things like the guilt Questor feels about transforming Abernathy, the struggle that Ben has about the Paladin, and the way Mistaya is able to connect to Questor I also really liked that Elizabeth was brought back for this book and they focused on how much A There were some things that I really liked about this book, but there were also some things that just kinda baffled me On the plus side, I liked how this book really focused on the relationships between the different characters, focusing on things like the guilt Questor feels about transforming Abernathy, the struggle that Ben has about the Paladin, and the way Mistaya is able to connect to Questor I also really liked that Elizabeth was brought back for this book and they focused on how much Abernathy still cares for her I found Poggwydd also very enjoyable I thought it was interesting to see another g home gnome apart from Philip and Sot.That being said, I still wish that Philip and Sot were included I still find them enjoyable and it seemed a bit odd that they were the only ones not included Also, I was practically screaming at Ben IT S NIGHTSHADE Hello Shouldn t she be at the top of your list of people who have a grudge and magic Some of the motivations of the characters and how the magic is used also seemed a bit odd to me Also, and I realize I m probably in the minority here, but I really don t care for the character of Willow I find damsel in distress characters rather tedious, and it seems like she tends to do the same things in all the novels Namely, profess her undying love for Ben which always seemed kinda hollow to me I wish that prophecy didn t come up as much as it does It gives their an entire romance a I love you because I have to spin , turn into a tree, and walk around naked really that happens in every novel at some point This was enjoyable enough and I m glad that there s at least oneMaybe it will wrap it up a bit better It will be interesting to see what sort of story Brooks comes up with after so many years

    As much as I enjoy Terry Brooks and his easy to follow writing style, this book was a little underwhelming It was a littlepredictable than the average Brooks romp and the ending seemed quite rushed Brooks has a wonderful imagination and I love the concept of Landover but this wasn t as good as previous installments I have the final chapter of this series out from the library Out of loyalty to this author and some of his other great work I will see this through to the endsigh2.5 s As much as I enjoy Terry Brooks and his easy to follow writing style, this book was a little underwhelming It was a littlepredictable than the average Brooks romp and the ending seemed quite rushed Brooks has a wonderful imagination and I love the concept of Landover but this wasn t as good as previous installments I have the final chapter of this series out from the library Out of loyalty to this author and some of his other great work I will see this through to the endsigh2.5 stars

    Landover is getting stale It s a very small world built on a lovely pretext, but it feels that the main characters never evolve or acquire any depth Any sympathy I might have felt for Nightshade upon learning her story is canceled by the fact that she never redeems herself and her demise if in fact she did..demise was anti climatic In Tangle Box, possibilities were opened up but never developed I would like to see some of the characters grow out of the limited roles the author has put them Landover is getting stale It s a very small world built on a lovely pretext, but it feels that the main characters never evolve or acquire any depth Any sympathy I might have felt for Nightshade upon learning her story is canceled by the fact that she never redeems herself and her demise if in fact she did..demise was anti climatic In Tangle Box, possibilities were opened up but never developed I would like to see some of the characters grow out of the limited roles the author has put them in Can Willow get pissed of Can Ben stop knee jerk reacting and walking into the obvious trap every single time Can Abernathy please stop being such a dog Can Nightshade be anything other than the stereotypical villain hell bent on revenge Princess of Landover will go on my to read listout of principle and loyalty to the author than from any desire to see what happens next

    I couldn t believe how disinterested I was in Ben and Willow s storyline I wanted to spend muchtime with Nightshade and Mistaya or Abernathy, Quester, and Elizabeth Maybe that s because I feel like Willow and Ben have gone about as far as they can go as characters They do reveal some very personal secrets to each other in this book, but they re always accepting of each others mostly Ben s faults Mistaya, on the other hand, gets to hear Nightshade s history, though somewhat edited, a I couldn t believe how disinterested I was in Ben and Willow s storyline I wanted to spend muchtime with Nightshade and Mistaya or Abernathy, Quester, and Elizabeth Maybe that s because I feel like Willow and Ben have gone about as far as they can go as characters They do reveal some very personal secrets to each other in this book, but they re always accepting of each others mostly Ben s faults Mistaya, on the other hand, gets to hear Nightshade s history, though somewhat edited, and they develop a strange friendship that you know can only be doomed in the end I think that Terry Brooks has some real potential with his villains, but we spend so much time with the heroes of the story, who are fairly bland in comparison, that we hardly ever get the villains perspective

    Another formulaic installment in Landover Lines are drawn, allegiances are madeclear and resolution is found I get the feeling that Mr Brooks isn t really trying all that hard with this series What bothered me most was the blatant time line problems between Earth and Landover It wouldn t be bad if time progressed differently between the two worlds, but he explicitly said in The Black Unicorn that time in the two worlds progresses in tandem I m also confused as to why Mr Brooks felt Another formulaic installment in Landover Lines are drawn, allegiances are madeclear and resolution is found I get the feeling that Mr Brooks isn t really trying all that hard with this series What bothered me most was the blatant time line problems between Earth and Landover It wouldn t be bad if time progressed differently between the two worlds, but he explicitly said in The Black Unicorn that time in the two worlds progresses in tandem I m also confused as to why Mr Brooks felt the need to introduce a new G home Gnome rather than using Fillip and Sot again

    This was a fairly fun adventure There wastension in it than in the previous novels.Mistaya s character was interesting There was a bitdevelopment with Questor and Abernathy, although it was in another foray into Seattle for no real reason.I still don t understand how Ben is so stupid though His daughter is kidnapped and since he hasn t heard from his mortal enemy in two years, obviously she could have nothing to do with it

    I liked it but is anyone else beginning to feel like the Landover books are becoming cookie cutters of the first I mean, how many times does Ben Holiday freaking have to find himself Does he just get lost that easily This book was a good attempt at breaking the Ben needs to find himself cycle, but overall I was simply unimpressed.

    After being disappointed with the last book of the Landover series, The Tangle Box, I found that Witches Brew was largely a move in the right direction There are some aspects of the book that are a little off, but in general it was a much stronger outing in Landover Sometimes I really wish there was an opportunity to give half stars, because I probably would have given this a 4.5 if I could have.On the positive side the book felt like the stakes were a bit higher and the villain was a bit mor After being disappointed with the last book of the Landover series, The Tangle Box, I found that Witches Brew was largely a move in the right direction There are some aspects of the book that are a little off, but in general it was a much stronger outing in Landover Sometimes I really wish there was an opportunity to give half stars, because I probably would have given this a 4.5 if I could have.On the positive side the book felt like the stakes were a bit higher and the villain was a bitmenacing than in the previous books The main conflict in the book is actually a fairly well thought out plan by the villain as opposed to plots that relied on a mishap or people acting against better judgment It s not perfect but it is a step above most of the setups since the first book.I also felt there wasemotional impact in this book than the previous works Landover has always been on the lighter side, serious but never too serious, this book is similar but I also felt like it had a bitweight There felt like there wasemotional development between some of the characters through the story This also gave the book a bitimpact Together with having amenacing villain, it gave the book overall aserious tone, which I kind of liked It s not super dark or anything, but it feltuncertain at times even though you knew things would end mostly alright in the end.The book has its flaws though The biggest of these is probably the motivation of the main villain, the witch Nightshade Her motivation is a lot of misplaced blame on High Lord Ben Holiday that really doesn t work all that great Brooks presents some of Nightshade s past to explain why Nightshade is so angry and full of hate over the events, but it feltlike a way to make it seem plausible than anything else Also, it takes way too long for the heroes to figure out who s behind the plot of the book Nightshade is consistently dismissed as an option for at least the first half of the book if not two thirds of the book This doesn t really make much sense, but at the same time she seems to have been on good behavior the last couple of years before the events of the book, so maybe it isn t as bad as it seems to those of us who get the whole picture shown to us a lot earlier.There is also a subplot with Abernathy and Questor Thews transported to Seattle that doesn t really add much to the story and seems mostly unnecessary It does cause some character development, but doesn t really do much to progress the story The perk is that you get to see Elizabeth again from the third book, but then there is this weird crush thing she has on Abernathy that seemed kind of weird and maybe a bit creepy However, besides these few missteps I did enjoy this book better than The Tangle Box I still don t think it quite lived up to the first book, but it was at least on the same footing as the other two books in the series Like all the Landover books they re not incredibly deep affairs, but I enjoy them for what they are

    Witches Brew, much like it s predecessors in the Magic Kingdom of Landover series, is akin to a contemporary fairy tale and if that s what you re expecting, you ll surely be delighted A direct sequel to The Tangle Box, Witches Brew tells the tale of Mistaya, the unique child of the human king Ben Holiday and the sylvan creature Willow, as she faces her first challenge which may or may not involve the witch with a personal vendetta against the King, Nightshade.Landover is home to an assortme Witches Brew, much like it s predecessors in the Magic Kingdom of Landover series, is akin to a contemporary fairy tale and if that s what you re expecting, you ll surely be delighted A direct sequel to The Tangle Box, Witches Brew tells the tale of Mistaya, the unique child of the human king Ben Holiday and the sylvan creature Willow, as she faces her first challenge which may or may not involve the witch with a personal vendetta against the King, Nightshade.Landover is home to an assortment of magical and mythical creatures kobolds, fairy creatures, gnomes, a dragon, and a witch all of whom make guest appearances throughout the story Some encounters are quite humorous, yet others aresinister Brooks expertly reveals the motivations of each character, making them quickly indentifiable While Brooks let s the reader in on the big mystery of the book very early on, King Ben Holiday is left unawares which makes him often appear glaringly ignorant However, his writing is so superb that it is a joy to read regardless of how inane the protagonists may seem If Witches Brew were published today, it might be classified as YA Fantasy The subject matter is appropriate for an adult or younger audience, as it s mostly an adventure interlaced with individual human struggles, and some fantasy action although I still had to look up a few words try obstreperous I first read it at 15 or 16, and while it may not be as relevant in the genre today, it s still an enjoyable read
