Confrontations with the merciless Isle Witch and the monstrous Antrax have already taken their toll on the heroes of the Four Lands, but their darkest adversary now snaps at their heels, in the form of the Morgawr - master of the Isle Witch.
With a fleet of airships and a crew of walking dead men at his command, the Morgawr is in relentless pursuit of the Jerle Shannara. For the Morgawr, the goal is twofold: to find and control the fabled ancient books of magic, and to destroy the dark disciple who betrayed him - the Isle Witch. Now at the mercy of those who seek vengeance against her, the Isle Witch's only protector is her long-lost brother, Bek Ohmsford, who is determined to redeem his beloved sister...and deliver her to the destiny predicted for her by the Druid Walker Boh.

"Proves once again that [Brooks] puts out books that sell because of their quality, not just because of his name on the cover." (Publishers Weekly)
This story wraps up the Voyages of Jerle Shannara and moves pretty quickly throughout. Only complaint- wish it was longer! If you have liked the other books then the conclusion of the trilogy won't disappoint.
great story, fantastic conclusion to the Gerald Shannara trilogy. the concluding paragraphs left me frustrated by having more questions. now I have to go on to the next books in the series. I am left wanting more.
I really enjoy Terry Brooks books and I have been reading them for a while now. I think this is probably about my 10th book. the trilogy for the Jerle Shannara has by far been my favorite story of the series. I like it so much I'm going to start over and read it again now. I hope they make this into a movie! it actually had me tearing up a few times and cheering other times.
To be fair to Terry Brooks and the story---you really need the unabridged version. Audible please take note. Thanks
