The Stiehl Assassin: Book Three of the Fall of Shannara

The Stiehl Assassin: Book Three of the Fall of Shannara

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

Following The Black Elfstone and The Skaar Invasion comes the third book in the triumphant four-part conclusion to the Shannara series, from one of the all-time masters of fantasy.

The Skaar have arrived in the Four Lands, determined to stop at nothing less than all-out conquest. They badly need a new home, but peaceful coexistence is not a concept they understand. An advance force under the command of Princess Ajin has already established a foothold, but now the full Skaar army is on the march – and woe betide any who stand in its way.

But perhaps the Skaar victory is not a foregone conclusion. The Druid Drisker Arc has freed both himself and Paranor from exile. Drisker’s student, Tarsha Kaynin, has been reunited with the chief defender of the Druid order, and is learning to control her powerful Wishsong magic. If they can only survive Tarsha’s brother and the Druid who betrayed Drisker Arc, they might stand a chance of defeating the Skaar. But that is a very big if . . . as Tarsha’s brother now carries the Stiehl – one of the most powerful weapons in all the Four Lands – and is determined to take his revenge on everyone who has wronged him.

A strong opening book . . . The Four Lands face a new threat
FANTASY BOOK REVIEW on THE BLACK ELFSTONE
I can't even begin to count how many of Terry Brooks's books I've read (and reread) over the years. From Shannara to Landover, his work was a huge part of my childhood
Patrick Rothfuss, author of THE NAME OF THE WIND
The stage is set for a conclusion larger and more epic than anything readers have seen from Brooks in over two decades.
B&N SciFi & Fantasy Blog
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
Terry Brooks is a master of the craft and a trailblazer who established fantasy as a viable genre. He is required reading

Fantastic . . . one of the best books in this saga

If Tolkien is the grandfather of modern fantasy, Terry Brooks is its favorite uncle
