Summary

The third volume of The Heritage of Shannara, which continues one of the most popular fantasy series of all time

"Find the Elves and return them to the world of Men!" The shade of the Druid Allanon had ordered Wren. 

It was clearly an impossible task. The Elves had been gone from the Westland for more than a hundred years. There was not even a trace of their former city of Arborlon left to mark their passing. No one in the Esterland knew of them - except, finally, the Addershag. 

The blind old woman had given instructions to find a place on the coast of the Blue Divide, build a fire, and keep it burning for three days. "One will come for you." 

Tiger Ty, the Wing Rider, had come on his giant Roc to carry Wren and her friend Garth to the only clear landing site on the island of Morrowindl, where, he said, the Elves might still exist, somewhere in the demon-haunted jungle. 

Now she stood within that jungle, remembering the warning of the Addershag: "Beware, Elf-girl. I see danger ahead for you...and evil beyond imagining." It had proved all too true. 

Wren stood with her single weapon of magic, listening as demons evil beyond all imagining gathered for attack. How long could she resist? 

And if, by some miracle, she reached the Elves and could convince them to return, how could they possibly retrace her perilous path to reach the one safe place on the coast?

I thought this was a trilogy. Not so


Author needs to set expectations better. I am ready for this story to end.

Overall What I Expect from Brooks

I would have given the 5 start but for a few things. Overall the book was well worth the credit.

I guess I'm getting a bit weary of the two brothers with weird names thing. Even the physical descriptions of the brothers is so close to another of his books, I found it kind of annoying, but this is a small issue.

What bothered me the most was the slow pace of much of the book. There was a lot of dead space in the book, that really didn't advance the story line. I guess it could be called character development, but much of it was just fill.

I'm going to start on the next book right away.

Lots to Learn

Everyone has a lot to learn. All are on his\her own adventure for the once Druid.. None have a clue about what lies at the end of mission.
