    Description

    The first book of the triumphant and epic four-part conclusion to the Shannara series, from one of the all-time masters of fantasy.

    Across the Four Lands, peace has reigned for generations. But now, in the far north, an unknown enemy is massing. More troubling than the carnage is the strange and wondrous power wielded by the attackers—a breed of magic unfamiliar even to the Druid order. Fearing the worst, the High Druid dispatches a diplomatic party under the protection of the order’s sworn guardian, Dar Leah, to confront the mysterious, encroaching force and discover its purpose.

    But another crucial journey is being undertaken. Exiled onetime High Druid Drisker Arc has been living in quiet seclusion, far from the politics and power struggles of his former life, until two brutal attacks by would-be assassins force him to seek out an infamous murder-for-hire guild—and find the hidden enemy who has marked him for death.

    At his side is Tarsha Kaynin, a young woman gifted with the wishsong and eager to be schooled in its formidable power by a master. She, too, is pursuing a mission: to locate her wayward brother, whose own magic has driven him to deadly madness and kindled his rage for vengeance . . . against his sister.

    In their darkest hours, facing dangerous adversaries, the lives and quests of Dar Leah, Drisker Arc, and Tarsha Kaynin will be inextricably drawn together. And the challenges each confronts will have resounding consequences for the future of the Four Lands.

    Praise for The Black Elfstone:

    “Epic scope, heroic characters, and so much heart . . . proof that the Shannara series can still reach new heights.” (Tordotcom)

    “A strong opening book . . . The Four Lands face a new threat.” (Fantasy Book Review)

    “Fantastic . . . one of the best books in this saga.” (SFRevu)

    Terry Brooks continues his masterful work.

    This book grabs from the get go and there are quite a few dangling threads to follow. Excitement abounds for this series!

    As always simon vance rocks

    Great start to the final four conclusion of the whole series. Love going back to my four lands. Only thing is how they pronouce shanarra. They’re doing it tv style. Not scott brick style which i grew up hearing it. Even the 90’s pc games does it scott brick style. Hate how the tv pronounced it. Ugh. Other than that. Great book

    Same predictable Terry Brooks storyline

    I love the Shannara series since the beginning, but the overall story lines are always essentially the same thing. Always a spy who easily infiltrates, add a little side stories, etc... it’s plug and play...but I still like the fantasy world, just wish another author could take over a bring something more original to the four lands

    A great tale - but why divided into 4 books?

    I felt fully engaged in the story from the beginning, because I cheated - reading book 4 first. It gave significance to the otherwise uncomplicated multiple quests in book 1. This example of Shannara-verse and its characters are engaging, the prose without pretense and affectation. I reread Middle Earth tales for JRRT's tapestry. I reread Shannara tales just to enjoy the various journeys, not necessariiy for cleverness of plot.

    Great read

    Maybe just me, but it seemed a little slow in the beginning. It soon took off, though, and ended up as another example of Brooks great talent.
