Description

ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR FANTASY TALES OF ALL TIME. NOW AN EPIC TV SERIES. An ancient evil is stirring, intent on the complete destruction of all life. The Druid Allanon sets out on a dangerous journey to save the world, reluctantly aided by Brin Ohmsford, daughter of Wil Ohmsford-for she alone holds the magic power of the wishsong. But a prophecy foretells doom, as evil nurses its plan to trap the unsuspecting Brin into a fate far more horrible than death. Praise for Terry Brooks "Shannara was one of my favorite fictional worlds growing up, and I look forward to many return trips."-Karen Russell, author of Swamplandia! "If Tolkien is the grandfather of modern fantasy, Terry Brooks is its favorite uncle."-Peter V. Brett, author of The Skull Throne "A great storyteller, Terry Brooks creates rich epics filled with mystery, magic, and memorable characters."-Christopher Paolini, author of Eragon

Professional reviews

"The Mord Wraiths are once again on the move, with orders to destroy humankind. As the last Druid prepares to stand against them, he calls upon young Brin Ormsford and, despite their efforts to leave her younger brother behind, he also is drawn into the struggle and becomes essential to the outcome. Scott Brick makes this tale his own. He narrates with the air of a master storyteller who is convinced that this tale is not only of interest, but also important. As a narrator, he uses timing and pace to good effect, and his intensity never flags. Brick's characterizations and accents are memorable. J.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine"
