I'm a big fan of children's/YA fiction as I think it often shows a lot more imagination and creativity than we tend to find in the adult fantasy market, and think it's an area Gaiman usually writes well in so I'm looking forward to this.

It was split into two books for the UK paper back release, IIRC. Steel and snow was part 1 whilst Blood and Gold was part 2. So you might want to check the other version I'm assuming you have, as that might be the full book in a single binding.

Well, not so much bought as "acquired". I took some books off my nan's hands and I've got:
The Sword of Shannara
The Elfstones of Shannara
The Wishsong of Shannara
The Scions of Shannara
The Druid of Shannara
The Voyage of the Jerle Shannara #1 Isle Witch
I think that would mean I'm missing maybe 2-3 books to complete the series that these books start? I know the first trilogy is complete but I don't know if the other two are trilogies or what. Time to do research
