'TERRY'S PLACE IS AT THE HEAD OF THE FANTASY WORLD' Philip Pullman

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

The age of peace that has reigned across the Four Lands is now at an end. An army of invaders, wielding a terrible new magic, is cutting a bloody swathe across the far north . . .

The fate of the world now rests on the shoulders of an exiled druid, a conflicted warrior and a young woman struggling to master a powerful magic. As the conflict grows, they will face dangerous adversaries and deadly challenges - and the consequences of their actions will determine the future of the Four Lands.

Through twenty-eight novels written over the course of forty years, Terry Brooks's Shannara series has entranced millions of readers around the world. Now, with The Black Elfstone - the first book in the Fall of Shannara - Terry begins to bring his epic vision to a grand conclusion.

'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

'I would not be writing epic fantasy today if not for Shannara' Peter V. Brett

'A master of the craft . . . required reading' Brent Weeks

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
