Publisher's Summary

Following The Black Elfstone, the second book of the epic four-part conclusion to the Shannara series from one of the acknowledged masters of the fantasy genre.

Tensions in the Four Lands are high. The mysterious force that laid waste to Paranor has revealed a more human face. While some gain a new understanding of the invaders and what they are after, others continue their existing quests even as the peril rises. For what looked to be a formidable invading force proves only the forerunner of a much vaster army - one that is now marching against the Four Lands in all its fury.

Just a question?

How did the elf prince use the elf stones, when he stole them?

The story was very enjoyable, but it was a little disconcerting about the elf stones.

Best Shannara is recent history.

Another great Shannara book. Though adding a woman's voice to the recording would have gone a long way towards making the story more immersive.

Very good listen

Very strong novel. Reminiscent of the earlier shannara novels. Great read by Simon Vance as usual. Ends with a cliff hanger. Would also like to thank Terry Brooks for getting me started years ago in junior high school reading fantasy. I haven’t missed a book in this series since. Also condolences on the loss of your daughter.

BAM That is how it’s done.

This stunning continuation of the Fall brings more character development, excitement, and more than its fair of fun and brilliant surprises. Terry Brooks at his finest.
