Hope blooms anew for the Four Lands in this riveting conclusion, not only to the Fall of Shannara series but to the entire Shannara saga — a truly landmark event over forty years in the making!
Since he first began the Shannara saga in 1977, Terry Brooks has had a clear idea of how the series should end, and now that moment is at hand.
As the Four Lands reels under the Skaar invasion — spearheaded by a warlike people determined to make this land their own — our heroes must decide what they will risk to save the integrity of their home. Even as one group remains to defend the Four Lands, another is undertaking a perilous journey across the sea to the Skaar homeland, carrying with them a new piece of technology that could change the face of the world forever. And yet a third is trapped in a deadly realm from which there may be no escape.
Filled with twists and turns and epic feats of derring-do — not untouched by tragedy — this is vintage Terry Brooks, and a fitting end to a saga that has gathered generations of readers into its fold.
