The Sword of Shannara Review by R.J. Wise
The first of four novels in the “The Sword of Shannara” series, “A Knight of Flowers” by Patrick Rothfuss is a very well-written and enjoyable book, and if you are not a fantasy fan then this book may not interest you very much. The main character, a young boy named Eloani, is raised by his family as a girl because his father did not want to change his name, but he changed his mind once he was old enough and Eloani was taken to live with his cousin, a girl named Auri.
Rothfuss does an excellent job of introducing us to the world that this story takes place in. It is an interesting and imaginative world with its own laws and rules of social conduct, and is very similar to some parts of Africa. The main difference between Eloani and some other children in the story is that he goes around as a boy instead of a girl. This is interesting because it gives us an idea about his personality, as well as how society thinks.
There are several things about Eloani’s life that we can relate to, but I do not want to spoil anything for you, so I’ll keep my review of the book as a general one instead. He goes around as a boy, meeting many different people, and he eventually learns that he must be a boy if he wants to do something important in his life, such as saving the world or protecting the city of Shannara. This is a fun and intriguing concept for a story, and I loved all of the different characters. All the different characters are quite likable, and I loved the way they played off each other in order to form a complex and well-developed world.
When it comes to writing an adventure story like this one, Patrick Rothfuss does a great job of taking you on the journey of a lifetime. You are constantly amazed at the beautiful sights that the story takes you on, and it is very enjoyable to read. If you are looking for a fun and entertaining book to read again, I would recommend this one.
I do recommend this book to anyone who has read “The Name of the Wind”, which is also written by Patrick Rothfuss. I really liked the story that this book tells and enjoyed reading about the different characters and their lives.
Overall, I thought this book was a very enjoyable read and I’m very excited to read more of Eloani’s adventures. life. If you like fantasy books or are interested in seeing a whole new world created by a good story, then I highly recommend this book.
