Wards of Faerie

***50 MILLION TERRY BROOKS COPIES SOLD AROUND THE WORLD***

THE SHANNARA CHRONICLES IS NOW A MAJOR TV SERIES

‘Terry’s place is at the head of the fantasy world’ Philip Pullman

THERE WAS AN AGE WHEN THE WORLD WAS YOUNG.

It was a time before the coming of humans, a time when magic was the dominant power – and it was named the age of Faerie.

Ever since this time, a bitter war has been raging between the forces of good and evil. And it was during this age that the Elfstones protecting the Elven race disappeared. They have been missing for thousands of years.

Now a clue to their location may have surfaced in the ancient diary of a princess, and it will be the beginning of an adventure that no-one could have anticipated.

This is the beginning of a breathtaking new series from the master of modern fantasy Terry Brooks. Returning to his core Shannara world, this spellbinding series will astound both seasoned Terry Brooks fans and those discovering his magical world for the first time.

Reviews

Terry Brooks is a master of the craft and a trailblazer . . . Required reading
Brent Weeks, author of the Night Angel Trilogy
Wards of Faerie is the best novel Brooks has written in years . . . It's full of hair-raising escapes, twists to established traditions and set pieces familiar to Shannara fans and characters, interesting magic and monsters and diverse relationships
A DRIBBLE OF INK
Will have readers racing their way through the book and leave them gasping for the next in the series at the end
British Fantasy Society
I would not be writing epic fantasy today if not for Shannara
Peter V. Brett, author of THE PAINTED MAN

Christopher Paolini, author of ERAGON
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, author of THE NAME OF THE WIND
Terry Brooks has been my constant companion over a lifetime of exploring my beloved fantasy genre. I say with all honesty I would not be writing epic fantasy today if not for Shannara. If Tolkien is the grandfather of modern fantasy, Terry Brooks is its favorite uncle
Peter V. Brett, author of THE PAINTED MAN
[Brooks'] writing has eerie depths and insights that show just why he is held in such high regard
DAILY MAIL
Terry's place is at the head of the fantasy world
