Terry Brooks has thrilled readers for decades with his powers of imagination and storytelling. He is the author of more than thirty books, most of which have been New York Times bestsellers. He lives with his wife, Judine, in the Pacific Northwest.
Young Pen Ohmsford undertakes a nearly impossible mission: he must retrieve the High Druid from exile in the otherworldly realm known as the Forbidding. His is not the only challenge, for a beleaguered army must rally to meet a far more powerful foe, and the world itself must prepare for the arrival of a demonic horror. Brooks concludes his latest trilogy, begun with Jarka Ruus and Tanequil and set in the same world as his many Shannara novels, with a story of courage and daring featuring a new generation of heroes. Demand will be high, so libraries should purchase accordingly. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
