The High Druid of Shannara trilogy draws to a thrilling
close as a young hero nears completion of his trial by
fire, a banished ruler fights for her life in a wilderness
of dread, and forces of darkness and light square off in a
battle unto death for the right to absolute rule. Prepare
to be spellbound by the masterly hand of bestselling legend
weaver Terry Brooks, conjuring at the peak of his skills.
For reasons known only to himself, the King of the Silver
River has charged young Penderrin Ohmsford, barely more
than a boy, with the daunting task of rescuing his aunt,
Grianne, Ard Rhys of the Druid order, from her forced exile
in the terrifying dimension of all things damned: the
Forbidding. With the noble dwarf Tagwen and the prodigal
elven princess Khyber Elessedil by his side–and with the
outcome of the bloody war between the Federation and the
Free-born at stake–Pen has accepted his mission without
question. But not without risk . . . or sacrifice.
Because Shadea a’Ru, the ruthless Druid responsible for
imprisoning the true Ard Rhys and usurping leadership at
Paranor, has sent her agents and assassins in relentless
pursuit of Pen and his comrades. And in securing the
talisman he needs to breach the Forbidding, Pen has paid a
devastating price. Now if the Free-born forces–already
decimated by the Federation’s death-dealing new weapon–
should fall, Shadea’s domination of the Four Lands will be
assured. Nothing short of Pen’s success can turn the tide.
But Pen’s challenge grows greater when he learns that his
parents, Bek Ohmsford and Rue Meridian, have fallen into
Shadea’s hands. He must try to helpthem–but once within the
walls of Druid’s Keep, where Shadea’s minions and dark
magic lurk at every turn, Pen’s survival is far from
assured. Yet it will all pale in comparison to the horrors
that wait inside the Forbidding–horrors poised to break
free upon the Four Lands when the time is right. . . .
