Product Details


In the long-awaited continuation of the Shannara fantasy trilogy (Ballantine), Brooks takes readers 300 years beyond the death of Allanon. The Four Lands have sadly changed. The Federation rules with an iron fist, and the land is plagued by horrible creatures known as Shadowen. Par Ohmsford, descendent of the fabled Shea and possessor of the magic of the wishsong, along with two other Scions, is challenged to save the Four Lands. Brooks weaves an action-packed tale set against a richly detailed fantasy world, and readers will be quickly drawn into this survival adventure. The main characters are well developed, and the tale is sprinkled with many interest-generating elements: romance, suspense, magic, and evil vs. good. Readers unfamiliar with the first trilogy will not have any difficulty with this volume, for Brooks clearly sets the stage and gives plenty of historical background. The book ends with a cliffhanger; teens will be clamoring for the sequel. A well-written fantasy epic. --Barbara A. Lynn, National Library Consultant, Econo-Clad Books, Topeka, KS

Generations after the events in the The Wishsong of Shannara , the most recent volume in Brooks's bestselling series, grave danger once again threatens the Four Lands. The Federation has conquered Callahorn, the other free men and the Dwarves, forbidding the practice of magic. The Druids and Elves have disappeared, and Shadowenspelling OK? Yes sss , wraiths who suck out the lives and substance of other living things and take their forms, cast their dark influence everywhere. The ghost of the Druid Allanon summons three Ohmsfords, descendants of the protagonists of the earlier series, and gives each a quest to save their land. Par Ohmsford, who has inherited his family's gift of the wishsong, is told to find the long-lost Sword of Shannara. His uncle, recluse Walker Boh, is charged to find Paranor, the lost keeper?? of the Druids, and to restore the ancient order. Par's cousin, half-Rover Wren Ohmsford, is sent to bring back the Elves. In this first volume of a new series, the scions of Shannara--Par, his brother Collboth and friend Morgan Leah, the leader of the Dwarfish underground, Steff; and the leader of the human Movement, Padishar Creel--encounter danger and death in their quest for for the? the Sword. ( Mar. )

Three hundred years after the death of the druid Allanon, a sinister Federation rules the Four Lands. Dark creatures stalk a countryside now bereft of magic--except for the ``wishsong'' magic of young Par Ohmsford, the final hope of a troubled world. Brooks (``The Magic Kingdom of Landover'' series) revisits the world of his earlier Shannara trilogy for a rewakening of the continual struggle between good and evil. Engaging characters and a solid grasp of the art of storytelling enliven this traditional epic fantasy. Recommended. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 11/1/89.
