The first book in Brooks' classic, bestselling fantasy series is being repackaged and released to coincide with publication of the new hardcover, "The Voyage of the Jerle Shannara: Ilse Witch". In this story, the wars of the ancient Evil have destroyed the world. It's up to half-elfin Shea Ohmssford, the last of the line of Shannara heirs, to fight the Warlock Lord with the Sword of Shannara.
...As the last heir of Shannara, Shea must save the humans, gnomes, trolls, dwarfs, and elves of the world from the Warlock Lord by reclaiming the wondrous sword.
Terry Brooks published his first novel, The Sword of Shannara, in 1977. It was a New York Times bestseller for more than six months. He has published twenty-five New York Times bestsellers since. Two of those--the novels Running with the Demon and A Knight of the Word--were chosen by the Rocky Mountain News (Denver) as among the best fantasy novels of the twentieth century. A practicing lawyer until his third book was published, Brooks now writes full-time. He lives in the Pacific Northwest with his wife, Judine.
