Product Description

Product Description

An old friend urges Shea Ohmsford to take a dangerous risk in the concluding story of this gripping Shannara eBook series by New York Times bestselling fantasy master Terry Brooks.

Shea Ohmsford has had quite enough of quests. A year after surviving a harrowing odyssey, he is still plagued by troubling memories and dreams. A mysterious trafficker in spells and potions provides a restorative nostrum for the stricken Shea . . . along with a warning: Shea will break his vow to never again leave Shady Vale. And then the potion-maker's prophecy comes to pass.

A thief, adventurer, and notoriously charismatic rogue, Panamon Creel unexpectedly appears in the Vale with a request for his longtime friend, Shea - journey into the untamed northland, infiltrate the stronghold of a sinister dealer in stolen goods, and capture a precious artifact: the sacred Black Irix. Creel wishes to return this treasure to its rightful owners. Shea cannot refuse such a just cause. But what lies behind the black castle walls they must breach? And will this quest truly be their last?

Includes a preview of the final novel in Terry Brooks's Dark Legacy of Shannara trilogy, Witch Wraith!

Not on par with usual writing, characters and storyline weak, also very short, not long enough to create a decent enough story. Love his series of books so disappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great short story 10 April 2014

A nice short story that can easily be read in no time. It's especially great for those times when you are waiting for Terry Brooks to write another book and you just need to satisfy your fantasy cravings. However, it can also be read by people totally new to Terry Brooks's work.
