Publisher's Summary

New York Times Best Seller

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

The Four Lands are under siege. Wielding a magical ability virtually impossible to combat, mysterious invaders defeat the most fearsome Troll armies, then focus their savagery on the Druid order - and all hope seems lost.

Eventually the invaders reveal a more human face, but understanding their motives in no way mitigates the brutality of their actions. Dar Leah, once the High Druid’s Blade, has crossed paths - and swords - with their ruthless leader before. So he knows that if any hope exists, it rests in the hands of the Druid Drisker Arc, now trapped inside vanished Paranor.

As Drisker races to find the ancient knowledge that could free him, Dar goes in search of Tarsha Kaynin, the young woman blessed with the powerful gift of the wishsong, whose magic could draw Drisker back into the world of the living. But little do they know that what appeared to be a formidable invading force may only be the forerunner of a much larger army - one intent on nothing less than total conquest.

Praise for The Skaar Invasion:

“Like The Black Elfstone before it, and perhaps even more so, The Skaar Invasion is one of [Terry] Brooks’s most aggressively political novels. It engages with familiar conflicts and themes, digging deep into the challenges facing humanity and asking - begging - for us to do better.... The Skaar Invasion is an exhilarating, intricate portrait of a world at war with itself.” (Tordotcom)

“Brooks continues the mastery of the world, as may be expected when working in one as developed as Shannara.” (RT Book Reviews)

Terry Brooks.

I loved it if you couldn't tell but just in case I loved it. I don't know any other place to ask this but have you guys @ audible ever considered doing a um I'd call it like a 3-set series deal. I get 2 points every month maybe like the 3 book sets of Terry Brooks like maybe every other month (set your own time limit) allow me to get all 3 books in a set of the series of books like The Fall of Shannara, The genesis of Shannara and so on for the cost of both of the monthly points. Or any 3 books you would want by a specific author. Not just terry brooks but authors across all genre's maybe too. Maybe set it up so your members can vote on an author to get 3 book series, truly the way you could do could be endless in all kinds of varieties of ways. Keep up your good work both Terry Brooks and Ofc Audible.<3

The Fall is true fall.

He just doesn't have the same passion in the writing. The female characters are either conieving bitches or nieve simpletons. Some characters have unbelievable motivations for why the agree to do certain things. Terry's writing no longer reads like the person who wrote the Dark Legacy of Shannara much less Genesis of Shannara. Something that attracted me to his fantasy writing 25 years as go is missing.

The Characters are awful

I cant stand the weak whiney men in this book or the Foreign invader princess and that whole story line. Its very hard to feel any sort of connection or attachment to characters.

Still churning them out

Same old, same old. But interesting to see how they're building the Skaar up. Very confusing with the random Omsford character though. Will be interesting to see what becomes of that arc.
