I have all the books, and I enjoyed them.
Chronologically, this takes place a long time AFTER the Sword of Shannara series, so you'll be in for a long trip trying to figure out who's who. Don't worry, there's still Ohmsfords
It's a bit more modern than you're used to, since the world has become more technologically advanced since you last visited it, but it still retains its typical Brooks fantasy aura. Get it, really.
