Storyline

An Elvish tree, known as the Ellcrys, is dying. The bad news is that the tree has been the only piece of magic that protects the Four Lands from the Demon World. Amberle Elessedil is the only one who can save the tree. But she has to unlock magic that the Elves haven't used in thousands of years. With the help of Wil Ohmsford, she travels to find the lost magic. But it won't be an easy task. Written by Chris Green

Pretty much exactly what you would expect from MTV
6 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

The show is pretty much your classic MTV show, piled on top of Terry Brooks' novels. Female empowerment angle? Check. Lazy exposition where a character says things for no reason other than to inform the audience? Check. Teenagers being super moody, irrational, all while doing cool things? Check. It's far from the worst thing I have ever watched, but also far from what could have been done with these novels. The show is largely targeted at the young teen crowd, and you can see elements of twilight all over it.

Short breakdown: Costumes: 3/10 For the most part looking like kids in costumes (there are a few exceptions). Stitching and materials all looking modern. Elf ears look plastic.

Plot: 6/10 The plot isn't complex, but is consistent and followable.

Dialogue/acting: 4/10 Again, more modern teenage angst than appropriate for the world it is set in.

Worldbuilding: 8/10 Terry left them a good world. They only messed it up a little. Hopefully we will see some more in future episodes.

Synopsis: I'll probably watch another few episodes, and I will probably regret doing so.
