These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: The Heritage of Shannara
Iron Woobie: Walker Boh loses an arm, his mentor and pet, and the girl he was trying to protect, is forced to become what he hates, and then loses his mentor again, only shortly after having reunited with him.
Paranoia Fuel: The Shadowen can possess anyone and mimic anything. End result, most of the characters are extremely nervous of trusting anybody. Morgan in particular has no faith in anyone following the incident with Teel.
