The New York Times Bestseller, Book One of The Heritage of Shannara. Three hundred years have passed since the death of the Druid Allanon, and the Four Lands are sadly changed. The Elves have vanished, and the Dwarves are enslaved. The Southland is under the totalitarian rule of the Federation, and magic is forbidden. Now the spirit of Allanon returns to the Scions of Shannara and shows them a bleak future in which the evil Shadowen have destroyed all life in the Four Lands. To prevent that, he orders the Scions to recover the long-lost Sword of Shannara, bring back the vanished Elves, and find the long-hidden Druids. But the forces of evil are already mobilizing against them . . .

Honestly, if I could for more than five stars I most certainly would. The Scions of Shannara was definitely in my opinion, a fast paced and intriguingly new addition to the tales from the Four Lands and I thoroughly felt encompassed by the world and it's characters more so than in any of the previous books, Wishshong being the most potent before. I felt I was there alongside Par and Coll in the Pit, Nervously traipsing behind Walker Boh as he walked between the Sphinxes in the Hall of Kings, and the returning of the Shade of Allanon at the Hadeshorn! All these things said, this book left me with an overall pleasantness, along with shock, and definite surprise(will not give those spoilers). Much recommended if you are a fan of the Shannara series, in which this one can stand alone. A great Fantasy read! Abnosome as they come!
