The Black Elfstone: Book One of the Fall of Shannara

‘TERRY’S PLACE IS AT THE HEAD OF THE FANTASY WORLD’ Philip Pullman

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.

I would not be writing epic fantasy today if not for Shannara
Peter V. Brett
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
