Publisher's Summary

Best selling author Terry Brooks became the master of epic fantasy with his legendary debut, The Sword of Shannara. Since then, each new novel in the Shannara saga has brilliantly built upon the world of breathtaking magic, adventure, and intrigue he created. Now in Morgawr, the quest at last draws to its climactic conclusion.

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.

Critic Reviews

"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 just doesn't do Terry Brooks justice!

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

To be fair to Terry Brooks and the story---you really need the unabridged version. Audible please take note. Thanks

Feel cheated....

Feel completely cheated that this series was abridged. If the author intended the story to be shorter they would have written it that way in the first place.

Need unabridged version!

It’s sad the only version available for this book isn’t the full version, I feel like I’m missing so many of the details in the book. The narrator was much better in this book then the previous book but still could have been better. It was sad that walked died I figured w
He would be around much longer then he was. So I guess we will have to see what happens with the new Druid now.

Been reading since the word and the void

Over all am happy with how story has moved along most were the unabridged version at times i became inpatient with the story being stretched out with lots of descriptives usually in the parts of excitement but I have loved the story since i read the original three elf stones the wish song and the sword of Shannara not in that order. I would recommend that you do as I and start back at the beginning with the word and void and enjoy all these stories have to offer

Truth

Mystery and adventure are just the beginning. Truth is as much a mystery as adventure.
