The mythical hero Allanon takes middle degree within the first of 3 gripping new stand-alone booklet brief tales set on this planet of the fantasy-fiction phenomenon that's Shannara—by loved New York Times bestselling writer Terry Brooks.
The historical past is hence: The once-Druid Brona, seduced via his pursuit of darkish magic, was once endlessly reworked into the Warlock Lord—whose evil could be the downfall of the 4 Lands and the loss of life of the Races. opposed to him, the Elven King Jerle Shannara wielded the fabled sword that bore his surname and triumphed. Or so it used to be believed. yet notwithstanding the darkish Lord was once pushed out . . . he used to be now not destroyed.
The Druid Allanon is familiar with in basic terms too good the prophecy handed right down to him through his past due grasp: that at last the Warlock Lord will go back. Now, after enormous quantities of years, that day turns out impending. And the time is handy for the Sword of Shannara to once again be introduced forth from its sanctuary to serve its historical objective. All that continues to be is for a blood descendent of the Elven apartment of Shannara to hold the blade into battle.
With ever extra portents of doom at the horizon, Allanon needs to search out the final closing Shannara inheritor, who on my own will undergo the load of protecting the 4 Lands’ future. yet with brokers of darkness ultimate in from in the back of, unforeseen enemies mendacity in wait forward, and treachery encroaching on each part, there might be no walk in the park of luck. Nor any insurance that this determined quest aren't the Druid’s final.
