The third book in the Heritage of Shannara tetralogy follows the separate quests of Wren, Coll, and Par Ohmsford and their uncle Walker Boh as ordered by the shade of Allanon. Wren, the gifted elf queen, must brave a demon-haunted jungle on her nearly impossible mission to retrieve the elves and bring them back to the land of men. The elves, in fear of evil beasts, are hiding behind the magical barriers of their city Arborlon on the island Morrowindl. Before all is through, Wren discovers that she herself is an elf, the granddaughter of Queen Ellenroh, while Coll, a prisoner Rimmer Dall, leads the villain to his brother Par, and Walker Boh rediscovers Paranor, the lost city of the Druids, by unwilling becoming one of them.
