Summary

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

The Shadowmen still swarm over the Four Lands, poisoning everything with their dark magic. And their leader is determined to destroy all the Scions of Shannara. For Walker Boh, he dispatches the Four Horsemen. For Wren, he sends an untrue friend. And for Par, he devises the most terrible fate of all. With these traps cleverly laid, the charges given by the shade of the Druid Allanon are doomed to failure - unless Par can discover a way to harness the power of the Sword of Shannara. 

Thus continues the enthralling Shannara epic, a spellbinding tale of adventure, magic, and myth....

A solid and satisfying ending.

About 25 years ago a I was working on a barn at my grandparents house. Then a insert your phobia here) fell off the rafters and landed on me. I flew into the house scared witless and grabbed the first book off the shelf. It happened to be Scions of Shannara. I was enthralled and stayed up all night reading it. The story only got better from there. Talismans is a fitting end to this amazing story.

Good old school generic fantasy

Good old school generic fantasy. Not amazing like some more recent stuff from Martin, Sanderson, Lynch, Rothfuss but good listen if this is your go to genre.
