Seven years after the conclusion of the High Druid of
Shannara trilogy, New York Times bestselling author Terry
Brooks at last revisits one of the most popular eras in the
legendary epic fantasy series that has spellbound readers
for more than three decades.
When the world was young, and its name was Faerie, the power
of magic ruled—and the Elfstones warded the race of Elves
and their lands, keeping evil at bay. But when an Elven girl
fell hopelessly in love with a Darkling boy of the Void, he
carried away more than her heart.
Thousands of years later, tumultuous times are upon the
world now known as the Four Lands. Users of magic are in
conflict with proponents of science. Elves have distanced
their society from the other races. The dwindling Druid
order and its teachings are threatened with extinction. A
sinister politician has used treachery and murder to rise as
prime minister of the mighty Federation. Meanwhile, poring
through a long-forgotten diary, the young Druid Aphenglow
Elessedil has stumbled upon the secret account of an Elven
girl’s heartbreak and the shocking truth about the vanished
Elfstones. But never has a little knowledge been so very
dangerous—as Aphenglow quickly learns when she’s set upon by
Yet there can be no turning back from the road to which fate
has steered her. For whoever captures the Elfstones and
their untold powers will surely hold the advantage in the
devastating clash to come. But Aphenglow and her allies—
Druids, Elves, and humans alike—remember the monstrous
history of the Demon War, and they know that the Four Lands
will never survive another reign of darkness. But whether
they themselves can survive the attempt to stem that tide is
another question entirely.
