Five hundred years have passed since the devastating demon-led war that almost exterminated humankind. Those who escaped the carnage were led to sanctuary by the boy saviour known as Hawk: the gypsy morph. But now, the unimaginable has come to pass: the cocoon of protective magic surrounding the valley has vanished. When Sider Ament, last surviving Knight of the Word, detects unknown predators stalking the valley, and Trackers from the human village of Glensk Wood, find two of their own gruesomely killed, there can be no doubt: the once safe haven of generations has been laid bare. Together, the young Trackers, the aging Knight, and a daring Elf princess race to spread word of the encroaching danger. But suspicion and hostility among their countrymen threaten to doom their efforts from within, while beyond the breached borders, a ruthless Troll army masses for invasion. Standing firm between the two, the last wielder of the black staff and its awesome magic must find a successor to carry on the fight against the cresting new wave of evil.

Terry Brooks continues to write really great fantasy that many readers crave, and each and every book Shannara or Landover is overflowing with emotion, adventure, danger, and at times life altering fantasy not like any other.
?Bearers of the Black Staff? brings us 500 years after Hawk shielded his convoy in the mountain valley. Now the magical barrier is gone, the survivors are forced to face the unknown world outside. In a way, it takes me back to ?Running With the Demon?, because it reacquaints us with what being a Knight of the Word is all about and the tremendous responsibility, burden, and sacrifice that come with being a Bearer of the Black Staff.
This, the first book in the Legends of Shannara series was what I consider to be toned down quite a bit for Terry Brooks, and a bit slow in a few spots. I expect bigger and better things from ?The Measure of the Magic?, which I?m sure he?ll not disappoint. Overall, this is a must read for any fantasy lover and especially any Shannara fan. Super! I really loved it!
Publishers Weekly, 2010-07-05 The horrors of a war-ravaged world again invade a hard-won peace in Brooks's intense follow-up to 2008's The Gypsy Morph. Five hundred years have passed since Hawk led a tattered band of survivors into a valley protected by a magical barrier. Now the wall has been breached by demons. The last known Knight of the Word, Sider Ament, wields a powerful black staff that he hopes to pass to a new leader. After rescuing talented teen Trackers Panterra Qu and Prue Liss, Sider asks them to warn the Children of Hawk. Unfortunately, their council leaders don't share Sider's certainty of an impending invasion. While Sider explores the other side of the barrier, the young Trackers find help from Arborlon Elves in this superlative Tolkien-style fantasy tweaked with a contemporary vibe. (Sept.)
