Seven years after the conclusion of the High Druid of Shannara trilogy, New York Times bestselling author Terry Brooks at last revisits one of the most popular eras in the legendary epic fantasy series that has spellbound readers for more than three decades.
Tumultuous times are upon the world now known as the Four Lands. Users of magic are in conflict with proponents of science. The dwindling Druid order is threatened with extinction. A sinister politician has used treachery and murder to rise as prime minister of the mighty Federation. Meanwhile, poring through a long-forgotten diary, the young Druid Aphenglow Elessedil has stumbled upon the secret account of an Elven girl’s heartbreak and the shocking truth about the vanished Elfstones, which once warded the lands and kept evil at bay. But never has a little knowledge been so very dangerous—as Aphenglow quickly learns when she’s set upon by assassins. Yet there can be no turning back from the road to which fate has steered her. Whoever captures the Elfstones and their untold powers will surely hold the advantage in the devastating clash to come.

BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Terry Brooks's Bloodfire Quest.

“Shannara was one of my favorite fictional worlds growing up, and I look forward to many return trips.”—Karen Russell, New York Times bestselling author of Swamplandia!

  • Great

    By L.crotty
    Wow he's still got it with this book, I was instantly drawn back into the current events of the story even though its been 6 years since I read the high Druid trilogy. Great addition to the series.
  • BAD

    By Manwithredrighthand
    I've been reading this series since I was a kid, and this book is a profound disappointment. This is a laborious and horrendous read. Don't bother.

    By KonaAuntie
    What happened to authors who wrote books to tell a story, not to sell book two of a Trilogy. This book was too short and left EVERYTHING unresolved. This book just bare.y sets the groundrules of the plot line and then stops. For the price it is a great dissappointment. Kona Auntie
  • Another Great Terry Brooks Kick Off

    By Flightofthebear
    Terry has done it again! A new story with pieces blended from the old - awesome! His artful displaying of how they coalesce together is skillful beyond belief. Can't wait for the rest of the series to be released!
  • Terry,Brooks is back

    By Jaxdad2002
    He's retelling a story familiar to those of us that have been hooked on his every word since "The Sword...". New characters, familiar quests, everything old is new again. I'm looking forward to the spring and reading his next installment.
  • Sample is 145 pages

    By Reader grant
    Normally I would love to buy a Terry Brooks book but if half the book is a sample and the full book isn't the full story I agree $15 is to much. Sadly this is one I will have to pass on.
