About the Author

Terry Brooks has thrilled readers for decades with his powers of imagination and storytelling. He is the author of more than thirty books, most of which have been New York Times bestsellers. He lives with his wife, Judine, in the Pacific Northwest.




"A finely wrought tale of sacrifice, adventure, betrayal, magic, loss, and a world on the precipice."--Brent Weeks, author of The Way of Shadows

"A story that will delight Brooks' legions of fans . . . Here's to many more tales of this incredible world."--SFRevu


"Classic Terry Brooks . . . infused with details of Shannara's legends."--Fantasy Faction "Foolproof for fantasy lovers."--Library Journal

A standout performance from narrator Rosalyn Landor brings to life this new installment in Brooks's popular fantasy series. Set immediately after the High Druid of Shannara trilogy, Elf-turned-Druid Aphenglow Elessedil discovers an ancient diary that documents the theft of the magical Elfstones. Meanwhile, evil Prime Minister Drust Chazhul works to destroy the Druids, who are responsible for preserving the world's magic. Landor ably infuses the text with emotion and magic and creates unique and convincing voices for all the characters, both male and female. And as the story alternates between expository and actions scenes, Landor doesn't miss a beat, matching her tone and volume to the story's needs. A Del Ray hardcover. (Aug.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Researching magic in the books and scrolls housed below the palace, young Elven Druid Aphenglow Elessedil discovers a diary that recounts a forbidden romance between an Elven girl and a Darkling boy and hints at the fate of the long-vanished Elfstones. As troubled times return to the Four Lands and a tyrannical human-centered Federation seeks to dominate the other Races, Aphenglow sets herself a dangerous task-to follow the clues left in the diary and uncover magic that might save her people and her world. Set in a time after magic has given way to science, the latest addition to the best-selling Shannara series marks Brooks's return to that setting after a seven-year hiatus. VERDICT In time for the 35th anniversary of The Sword of Shannara (first published in 1977), Brooks opens up a new avenue for more tales of magic and epic adventure. His many fans will want this.
