It's been a year since the events in the Skull Kingdom but all is not right with Shea Ohmsford, the half elven heir of Shannara. He's home back in Shady Vale but he's not sleeping, tortured by horrific nightmares of his battle with the enemy. His brother Flick is getting increasingly more and more worried about Shea, to the point that he visits a woodswoman in a bid to ease Shea's suffering. She gives him a potion to give to Shea and Flick in turn gives Shea the potion, hoping and praying that it will help his ailing brother., to a degree it does begin to work until Shea and Flick's old friend Panamon Creel appears in the Vale. Creel had helped Shea during his mission to defeat the Warlock Lord and his assistance proved to be invaluable. Now Creel has a mission of his own and needs Shea's help in retrieving a personal and invaluable artifact but is there more to this mission than meets the eye.
This is a novella is a bit of an oddity as it's the third book in the Paladins series but actually fits into the timeline before the second and just after TSOS. In this case I really think that you need to read this in conjunction with The Sword Of Shannara so that you have a good basic knowledge of the mission Shea and Flick undertake in that book with Creel's help to give you a better understanding of what Creel is asking of them in The Black Irix.
As with the other books in the Paladins of Shannara series, this is another rich and detailed novella of just 40 pages.Read more ›
At times, it felt like it wanted a larger canvas on which to express itself, but that never detracted from the story.
It requires no further detailed review, as to do so would spoil the thing completely. But it is amazing how, twenty-seven years after reading The Sword Of Shannara for the first time, Shea's voice sounds exactly the same.
I am grateful to Terry for these three stories. I guess they are a journey down memory lane, to simpler times before bills and work and all the stresses of adulthood. And much like bumping into an old girlfriend, it's nice to know that the past can still make you feel good.
Read this after Sword of Shannara if you are new to the series
