SECRETS REVEALED. POWERS UNLEASHED. A LEGEND IN THE MAKING . . .

It is said that Paxon Leah is descended from the royals and warriors who once waged war with magical weapons. But those heroes are long gone now, and there is nothing enchanted about the antique sword that hangs above Paxon’s fireplace.

Little does Paxon know though, that extraordinary circumstances are about to overturn his simple world . . . and rewrite his destiny.

Terry's place is at the head of the fantasy world

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, bestselling author of THE NAME OF THE WIND
Brooks once again gifts readers with a breathless adventure in this new Shannara trilogy, the Defenders of Shannara. The action begins in the first chapter and doesn't end until the last page . . . Brooks' use of multiple points of view adds even more suspense and will have readers anxiously flipping pages to see how the complications will be resolved. For my part, I can't wait to see what happens in the second book!
