This is complete list of works by American fantasy author Terry Brooks.


Note: The list below represents Terry Brooks' suggested reading order for new readers, which is nearly identical to their chronological order of publication in real life. [1] Shannara#Chronological list of novels lists the chronological order within the universe of Shannara, but this note from the Terry Brooks site suggests not to read it in that order:
"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."
