Publisher's Summary

"Find the Elves and return them to the world of Men!" the shade of the Druid Allanon had ordered Wren.
It was clearly an impossible task. The Elves had been gone from the Westland for more than a hundred years. There was not even a trace of their former city of Arborlon left to mark their passing. No one in the Esterland knew of them - except, finally, the Addershag.
The blind old woman had given instructions to find a place on the coast of the Blue Divide, build a fire, and keep it burning for three days. "One will come for you."
Tiger Ty, the Wing Rider, had come on his giant Roc to carry Wren and her friend, Garth, to the only clear landing site on the island of Morrowindl, where, he said, the Elves might still exist, somewhere in the demon-haunted jungle.
Now she stood within that jungle, remembering the warning of the Addershag: "Beward, Elf-girl. I see danger ahead for you...and evil beyond imagining." It had proved all too true.
Wren stood with her single weapon of magic, listening as demons evil beyond all imagining gathered for attack. How long could she resist?
And if, by some miracle, she reached the Elves and could convince them to return, how could they possibly retrace her perilous path to reach the one safe place on the coast?


What the Critics Say

"If Harry Potter has given you a thirst for fantasy and you have not discovered the magic of Terry Brooks, you are in for a treat." (Rocky Mountain News)
"If you were delighted and entranced by Michael Ende's The Never Ending Story, you will definitely want to sample one of more of Terry Brooks's books." (Santa Cruz Sentinel)

Must read before moving on to Final book

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, In keeping with the series the writer devoted majority of this book solely to the Elves while touching on current adventures of the other characters on their quest. Would be a mistake not to read this book prior to finishing the series

Which character – as performed by John Lee – was your favorite?

Had several favorites in this book as well as disappointment in some of the characters themselves. I do not want to spoil the story by addressing them here as it would give away the adventure of discovering them for yourself

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No, except you do feel the frustration for what the elves were experiencing

Any additional comments?

Enjoyed the complete series
