Publisher's Summary

The first book of the triumphant and epic four-part conclusion to the Shannara series, from one of the all-time masters of fantasy.
Through 40 years of New York Times best-selling Shannara novels, Terry Brooks always had an ending in mind: a series that would bring it all to a grand conclusion. Now that time is here.
The Four Lands have been at peace for generations, but now a mysterious army of invaders is cutting a bloody swath across a remote region of the land. No one knows who they are, where they come from, or what they are after - and most seem content to ignore these disturbing events. The only people who sense a greater, growing threat and wish to uncover the truth are society's outcasts: an exiled High Druid, a conflicted warrior, a teenage girl struggling to master a prodigious magic...and a scrappy young orphan, improbably named Shea Ohmsford.

Narrator drives me nuts.

I got both the physical book and the audible book so that I can read and listen back-and-forth. This latest installment from Terry Brooks is wonderful, and even stronger than the last few books in the Shannara series. The narrator drives me crazy, though. He is British, and speaks with that exaggeratedly refined style in which he gets quiet at the end of every sentence. Unfortunately, Terry Brooks often writes with the most important part of the sentence at the end, such as a name or place. When I'm listening in the car, I miss so many important points. I don't want to turn up the volume because the beginning of every sentence is loud, in the end is too soft!Once I noticed that speech pattern after about three chapters, it drives me crazy! It happens constantly, so I can't ignore it.
