Synopses & Reviews
"A standout performance from narrator Rosalyn Landor brings to life this new installment in Brooks's popular fantasy series. Set immediately after the High Druid of Shannara trilogy, Elf-turned-Druid Aphenglow Elessedil discovers an ancient diary that documents the theft of the magical Elfstones. Meanwhile, evil Prime Minister Drust Chazhul works to destroy the Druids, who are responsible for preserving the world's magic. Landor ably infuses the text with emotion and magic and creates unique and convincing voices for all the characters, both male and female. And as the story alternates between expository and actions scenes, Landor doesn't miss a beat, matching her tone and volume to the story's needs. A Del Ray hardcover."
