Poll: What Is The Most Lethal Evil In The Original Trilogy?

mallenrohFantasy is filled with creatures.

And Terry Brooks has written some of the most memorable!

From the Warlock Lord and his Skullbearers to the Dagda Mor and his Reaper, Brooks heroes have long had to confront the very worst evil know in the Four Lands. The Sword of Shannara, The Elfstones of Shannara, and The Wishsong of Shannara are filled with them. After all, it takes a potent villain to bring out the most heroic in someone.

Sometimes that evil wins battles. But never the war.

What do you think is the most lethal character? Is it the Reaper? Or is it the Dagda Mor pulling its strings? Is it a pack of Furies or a poisonous creeper? Or is it the Illdatch, a book that was capable of creating the Warlock Lord, Mord Wraiths, and almost subverted Brin Ohmsford?

Or could it be Mallenroh, a witch whose ambition is only stymied by her sister and location?

Would love to hear what you think! Vote and comment below!
