They need to start with the Sword of Shannara it sets up the whole
Trilogy.......

Isn't there a prequel trilogy though? Is Elfstones one of those? That would make a sort of sense I guess.

Sword of Shannara is far too much like LotR to go with. Elfstones is the second of the original trilogy and an excellent place to start. There is no need to have read Sword either, as there is little in the way of crossover (other than Allanon). If done well, this could be another Game of Thrones. If done badly, it could be another Legend of the Seeker.

Ok, just looked & never knew of the "prequel" books..... May have to do some reading!! But I stand by starting with sword.
Elfstones is a good book but please start at the beginning ( don't get me started on Narnia!!!) If can make work as well as Thro rd then could be a great show, will only work on tv as would need a trilogy per book!!!
Wishsong is a bit wishy washy!! And the Heritage series is ok but find Par & Col very annoying.....
