The world of Shannara is brimming with untold stories and unexplored territory. Now bestselling author Terry Brooks breaks new ground with a standalone adventure that’s sure to thrill veteran readers and recent converts alike. The mysterious, magic-wielding Druid order has existed for long ages, battling any evil that threatens the Four Lands—and struggling to be understood and accepted by outsiders. But their hopes of building goodwill are dashed when a demon’s murderous rampage at a peace summit leaves their political opponents dead—casting new suspicions upon the Druids and forcing them to flee from enemies both mortal and monstrous. Paxon Leah, the order’s appointed protector, knows that blame lies with Arcannen Rai, the vile sorcerer he has battled and defeated before. But there’s no time to hunt his nemesis, if he is to lead the wrongfully accused Druids to their sanctuary. It is a quest fraught with danger, as a furious government agent and his army snap at their heels, and lethal predators stalk them in the depths of the untamed wilderness. But Arcannen is playing a deeper game than Paxon realizes. Paxon’s sister possesses a powerful magic that the sorcerer longs to control—but Arcannen has not reckoned with the determination of his own estranged daughter, Leofur, who is also Paxon’s devoted lifemate. Leofur sets out on a perilous quest to thwart her father’s desires—while the vengeful Arcannen conjures his blackest magical skills, determined to destroy them all . . . and claim the most powerful of magics for his own.

Editorial Reviews

Terry Brooks is a master of the craft and a trailblazer who established fantasy as a viable genre. He is required reading. Brent Weeks, New York Times bestselling author of The Night Angel Trilogy
The Shannara books were among the first to really capture my imagination. My daydreams and therefore my stories will always owe a debt to Terry Brooks. Brandon Mull, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Beyonders and Fablehaven series
I can’t even begin to count how many of Terry Brooks’s books I’ve read (and reread) over the years. From Shannara to Landover, his work was a huge part of my childhood. Patrick Rothfuss, New York Timesbestselling author of The Name of the Wind
If Tolkien is the grandfather of modern fantasy, Terry Brooks is its favorite uncle. Peter V. Brett, New York Times bestselling author of The Desert Spear
The Sword of Shannara is an unforgettable and wildly entertaining epic, animated by Terry Brooks’s cosmically generative imagination and storytelling joy. Karen Russell, New York Times bestselling author of Swamplandia! 
“Narrator Simon Vance returns to this longtime series with the final book in the current trilogy…When Leofur and the shape-shifter become tethered together, Vance’s delivery of their private telepathic communications is imbued with an intimate tone. He portrays the witch in her various moods and interactions as edgy and unpredictable. In both subplots, Vance builds on the suspense as the confrontation between good and evil intensifies.” AudioFile
