Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The magical Ellcrys tree is dying, loosening the spell that bars the Demons from enacting vengeance upon the land. Now Wil Ohmsford must guard the Elven girl Amberle on a perilous quest as she carries one of the Ellcrys' seeds to a mysterious place where it can be quickened into a powerful new force. But dark on their trail comes the Reaper, most fearsome of all Demons, aiming to crush their mission at any cost.

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Brooks' second masterpiece
By Marine Girl on June 3, 2021
I read Tolkien in college. Some might say the Sword of Shannara was an updated or modernized version of LOTR, and they would not be completely wrong. In Elfstones, however Brooks takes things in a new and exciting direction. A more menacing and universal threat, new and frightening villains, and an endless sense of despair that your favorite characters just aren't going to make it really had me turning the pages to the wee hours. The ending was climactic and a bit disturbing but in a good way. I'm onto his next book already and don't see me slowing down anytime soon. Love the series.
