The Elfstones of Shannara
How could so few, so frail a group come to be the the most important people of an age? Will Omsford begins a quest with the Druid Allinon and others joining with the Elves only hope, a fallen CHOSEN to save the world of the terrible breach in the dying magic of the Ellcrys. What was the secret of the Ellcrys? What is the Forbidding? Again Terry Brooks, in this third book in this series, the Elfstones of Shannara shows the battle that ensues to keep the lives of all mankind and other creatures alive against the minions of demonds being unleashed by the death of the Ellcrys and the fall of the Forbidding. Saviors again come to the rescue and find a way against all odds to bring the one hope back to Shannara, back to the land of the Elves saving the Four Lands. Will the saviors survive this trek? If so, what is the secret that is being hidden from Will Omsford to the end by the Durid Allanon and the fallen Chosen, Aberle? Terror, war, extreme fighting, magic, love, hate, emotions beyond expression are all kindled in this story of the power of this small group sent to save the known world. WOW!
