The past is always with us, but sometimes we fail to recognise it for what it is.' These were Jair Ohmsford's final thoughts as he walked away from the carnage at Dun Fee Aran, having destroyed at last the book of dark magic known as the Ildatch. Following this great event, told in The Wishsong of Shannara, Jair discovers that he can draw on a form of magic that allows him to transform into other living creatures, both human and non-human. The magic is both powerful and seductive, for Jair can feel himself wanting to remain in each new form that he tries.

The series of Shannara stories are increased by this graphic novel prequel to the Wishsong of Shannara. It is not worth the price but the story is good and I liked the format of the characters and beasts. Having read Classics Ilustrated as a kid I was better able to read the books. I read the first seven of the Shannara series 20 years ago and to now read a graphic novel seems a brilliant way to write short fiction of the genre.
