The Skaar Invasion: Book Two of the Fall of Shannara
By Terry Brooks
For forty years, Terry Brooks's Shannara series has entranced millions of readers around the world. And now comes the second novel in his Fall of Shannara series, which will bring Terry's epic vision to a grand conclusion
Following The Black Elfstone comes the second book in the triumphant four-part conclusion to the Shannara series, from one of the all-time masters of fantasy.
Tensions in the Four Lands are high. The mysterious force that laid waste to Paranor has revealed a more human face. While some gain a new understanding of the invaders and what they are after, others continue their existing quests even as the peril rises. For what looked to be a formidable invading force proves only the forerunner of a much vaster army - one that is now marching against the Four Lands in all its fury.
