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....

Unusual teamwork

The combination of forces will make for unusual bed mates. However, they make great fighting companions.

Awesome!!

This is an awesome ending to an amazing story that I can't recommend enough. It takes a little while to make it through all 4 books but the payoff is worth it.
