Praise for Terry Brooks: "If you haven't read Terry Brooks, you haven't read fantasy." (Christopher Paolini, best-selling author of Eragon and Brisingr)
"I can't even begin to count how many of Terry Brooks's books I've read (and re-read) over the years." (Patrick Rothfuss)
"I would not be writing epic fantasy today if not for Shannara." (Peter V. Brett)
"A master of the craft...required reading." (Brent Weeks)

Summary

Set in the same world as The Shannara Chronicles - now a major fantasy TV series showing on 5Star in the UK and Syfy in Australia.

New powers are awakening. A legend is born....

In a distant corner of the Four Lands, the mysterious magic of the wishsong has been detected. Paxon Leah, sworn protector of the Druid order and heir of the enchanted Sword of Leah, must travel to uncover its source - and ensure that this formidable power is not wielded by the wrong hands.

But danger lies in wait, and in a fearsome clash between mortal might and dark magic, it is up to Paxon, as the High Druid's Blade, to defend the people of the Four Lands against a terrifying evil.

From the international best-selling Terry Brooks comes a thrilling new adventure - and an unforgettable new hero.
