***THE SHANNARA CHRONICLES - NOW A MAJOR TV SERIES***
Volume one in the classic bestselling series - from one of the all-time masters of fantasy
'Terry's place is at the head of the fantasy world' Philip Pullman
Long ago, the world of the Four Lands was torn apart by the wars of ancient Evil. But in the Vale, the half-human, half-elfin Shea Ohmsford now lives in peace - until the mysterious, forbidding figure of the druid Allanon appears, to reveal that the supposedly long dead Warlock Lord lives again.
Shea must embark upon the elemental quest to find the only weapon powerful enough to keep the creatures of darkness at bay: the fabled Sword of Shannara.
Praise for Terry Brooks:
'A master of the craft . . . required reading' Brent Weeks
'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
'I would not be writing epic fantasy today if not for Shannara' Peter V. Brett, author of The Painted Man
'If you haven't read Terry Brooks, you haven't read fantasy' Christopher Paolini, author of Eragon
The original Shannara trilogy:
THE SWORD OF SHANNARA
THE ELFSTONES OF SHANNARA (now a major TV series: THE SHANNARA CHRONICLES)
THE WISHSONG OF SHANNARA
Handlungsablauf stark an die Herr der Ringe-Trilogie angelehnt, nicht besonders gut geschrieben. Geeignet als leichtes Lesefutter für Zwischendurch, wenn man High Fantasy mag.
