The first book of the triumphant four-part conclusion to the Shannara series, from one of the all-time masters of fantasy.

The age of peace that has reigned across the Four Lands is now at an end. An army of invaders, wielding a terrible new magic, is cutting a bloody swathe across the far north...

The fate of the world now rests on the shoulders of an exiled druid, a conflicted warrior and a young woman struggling to master a powerful magic. As the conflict grows, they will face dangerous adversaries and deadly challenges - and the consequences of their actions will determine the future of the Four Lands.

Through twenty-eight novels written over the course of forty years, Terry Brooks's Shannara series has entranced millions of readers around the world. Now, with The Black Elfstone - the first book in the Fall of Shannara - Terry begins to bring his epic vision to a grand conclusion.

Reviews for The Black Elfstone (#1 Fall of Shannara)

Brooks' Shannara series is a grand example of the best of the best in the genre . . . The design of the Shannara books spreads the story line across centuries, yet also makes it easy for new readers to jump in at any point * ASSOCIATED PRESS * If you haven't read Terry Brooks, you haven't read fantasy * Christopher Paolini * I would not be writing epic fantasy today if not for Shannara * Peter V. Brett * I can't even begin to count how many of Terry Brooks's books I've read (and re-read) over the years * Patrick Rothfuss, author of THE NAME OF THE WIND * A master of the craft . . . required reading * Brent Weeks * A strong opening book . . . The Four Lands face a new threat * FANTASY BOOK REVIEW * Fantastic . . . one of the best books in this saga * SFREVU *
