"Find the Elves and return them to the lands of men!" the shade of the Druid Allanon had ordered Wren.

It was clearly an impossible task. The Elves had been gone from the Westlands for more than a hundred years. There was not even a trace of their former city of Arborlon left to mark their passing. No one in the Westlands knew of them - except, finally, the Addershag.

The blind old woman had given instructions to find a place on the coast of the Blue Divide, build a fire, and keep it burning for three days. "One will come for you."

Tiger Ty, the Wing Rider, had come on his giant Roc to carry Wren and her friend Garth to the only clear landing site on the island of Morrowindl, where, he said, the Elves might still exist, somewhere in the demon-haunted jungle.

Now she stood within that jungle, remembering the warning of the Addershag: "Beware, Elf-girl! I see danger ahead for you... and evil beyond imagining." It had proved all too true. The jungle was dangerous enough. But the demons that dwelled there were truly evil beyond imagining.

She stood with her single weapon of magic, listening as the evil demons gathered for another attack. How long could she resist?

And if, by some miracle, she reached the Elves and could convince them to return, how could they possibly retrace her perilous path to reach the one safe place on the coast?

Here, in the third novel of his bestselling series, The Heritage of Shannara, master story-teller Terry Brooks tells of courage, betrayal, dark magic, and strange friends. This is epic fantasy at its best.

The Elf Queen of Shannara is the third book of The Heritage of Shannara. In my opinion The Elf Queen of Shannara is one of the most enjoyable Shannara books. It's an entertaining fantasy book. There's not much depth, but that doesn't matter, because this book is good. I liked it.
