Shannara is an epic/high fantasy series of novels written by Terry Brooks, beginning with The Sword of Shannara in 1977. The series tells the generational saga of the Shannara family, an Elven noble family that plays an important role in the struggles that ensue. The series blends magic and primitive technology, set in the Four Lands in a distant future long after civilization as we know it was destroyed in a chemical and nuclear holocaust called the Great Wars, and the world has reverted to a medieval state and magic has reemerged to supplement science as humans live among other races. Further into the novels, science starts to become more advanced.

I just recently watched this series. Despite it being on MTV, which was once known for showing music videos and music themed shows. The show itself was very well done. Good graphics and amazing costumes and sets. The scenery almost looked like it was filmed in the same sorts of places that Lord of the Rings was. I have been suggesting it to anyone who seems interested and all of them have been getting hooked on it. So I suggest it here to you now.
