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
This is a great book, and one of the best fantasy books I've ever read.(The Belgariad is the only one better.) However, my one problem is with the Druid Allanon. He is the mysterious, Gandalf-y figure, but only uses 1 spell in combat. BLUE FIRE. Even in his final battle, he:blast with blue fire x 100, and, for his final spell of his life... you guessed it more blue fire. Other than that, and the fact that to many characters died, it was great.
