Publisher's Summary

Horror stalks the Four Lands. The Ildatch, ancient source of evil, has stirred to life. It sends its foul Mord Wraiths to make war on all living things and bring about, at last, Mankind's destruction.

Once again Allanon, Druid Protector of the Races, must seek the help of a descendant of the Elven King, Jerle Shannara. Brin, daughter of Wil Ohmsford, has been born with the magic of the Wishsong, which alone can open a way to the Ildatch.

Reluctantly, she joins Allanon on his perilous journey east. Meanwhile her younger brother, Jair, learns that Brin will fail and die unless he can reach her in time. As Brin walks blindly into the trap the Ildatch has set, Jair's only hope of reaching her in time is to travel through the very heart of evil....

The Wishsong of Shannara is the third volume of the classic series that set the standard for modern fantasy. A timeless work from a master storyteller.

    "feels like a rehash of previous books in the set"

    This feels like a rehash of previous books in the set. Very difficult to finish.

    "Exceptional"

    I loved the whole series, and never the writer failed to hold my attention, and acting narrator Scott Brick added to the quality. Well produced

    "5 stars +"

    Having read this book back in the 1980's and thoroughly enjoyed it I found the Audible book even better. I will now be downloading the next book and hope it is as good.

    "More of the same"

    Read these books back in the 80's. Unfortunately all three books seem to be the same story repeated. Don't get me wrong, they're all readable (or should I say listenable?), but more in a Mills & Boon kind of way.
    Also, there's more than one similarity to the Lord of the Rings (although it would be difficult not to in this type of story).
