Another fine one from Terry Brooks.
The battle lines have been drawn. The forces of Shannara gather their strength and prepare for battle with the evil forces of the Shadowen. But our heroes are spread out throughtout the world and the Shadowen have beseiged their headquarters of Paranor. Only a miracle can save them now...
This was a great series within the series, and this was a great book. It's the finaly part in the Heritage of Shannara. Everything comes together well in this story. The pacing was perfect and the story well-crafted. Terry Brooks proves again that he is a master of modern fantasy.
Having fulfilled the quests imposed upon them by the shade of the druid Allanon, the children of Shannara must now attempt to use their newfound powers and allies to defeat the Shadowen who are ravaging the Four Lands. Drawing together the threads of the three previous series titles, Brooks orchestrates an exciting, though predictable, conclusion to his second Shannara series. Brooks's appeal lies in his fidelity to tried-and-true quest fantasy and his ability to create engaging protagonists.
