Since the death of Allanon, life in the Four Lands has drastially changed. Yet Par Ohmsford still has some power of the Wishsong. And when a message from the ancient Druid, Allanon, reaches them, Par is ordered to recover the long-lost Sword of Shinnara, and the glory that once was the Four Lands….
Three hundred years after the death of the druid Allanon, a sinister Federation rules the Four Lands. Dark creatures stalk a countryside now bereft of magic–except for the “wishsong” magic of young Par Ohmsford, the final hope of a troubled world. Brooks (“The Magic Kingdom of Landover” series) revisits the world of his earlier Shannara trilogy for a rewakening of the continual struggle between good and evil. Engaging characters and a solid grasp of the art of storytelling enliven this traditional epic fantasy. Recommended. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 11/1/89.
