A novel by

 
 
The Black Elfstone is the first book in the Fall of Shannara, the epic four-part conclusion to the wildly popular Shannara series by Terry Brooks - one of the all-time masters of fantasy.

The Four Lands has been at peace for generations, but now a mysterious army of invaders is cutting a bloody swath across a remote region of the land. No one knows who they are, where they come from, or what they are after - and most seem content to ignore these disturbing events.

The only people who sense a greater growing threat and wish to uncover the truth are society's outcasts: an exiled High Druid, a conflicted warrior, a teenage girl struggling to master a prodigious magic...and a scrappy young orphan, improbably named Shea Ohmsford.

Genre: Fantasy

Praise for this book

"Terry Brooks can rightfully be called The Godfather of modern fantasy. I proudly count myself among the ranks of authors who would never have had a career if not for his inspiration. Nearly every author in the genre must confess to standing on his shoulders." - Myke Cole
