The druid of Shannara

Adult Fiction BROOKS

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

The second installment of Brooks's new series, after The Scions of Shannara , follows Walker Boh as he reluctantly seeks the Black Elfstone, needed to bring back vanished Paranor, a quest laid on him by the shade of the Druid Allanon as part of the effort to save the Four Lands from the wraith-like Shadowen. Walker is rescued from a Shadowen attack by the beautiful and tragic Quickening, daughter of the legendary King of the Silver River. Walker and Quickening, with Morgan Leah and Pe Ell, travel to the land of the Stone King, who has stolen the Elfstone and is determined to turn the world into his own element. As the small band struggles though hostile terrain, Pe Ell's secret mission to assassinate Quickening complicates the battle with the Stone King's minions and his awesome powers. While this volume briefly touches on the fortunes of other questers, it appears that they will form the basis of future installments. Broadening the landscape of his magic world, Brooks has produced a deep and thoughtful fantasy. (Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

From Library Journal:

In a desperate attempt to reverse the destruction wrought by the Shadowen upon the Four Lands, Walker Boh, the ``Dark Uncle,'' embarks on a perilous journey to recover the black Elfstone and restore the lost druid keep of Paranor. Brooks's talent for creating complex, memorable characters is evident in this addition to the popular ``Shannara'' series. Recommended. (c) Copyright 2010.
