Publisher's Summary

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 the crush their mission at any cost. Thus continues the enthralling Shannara epic, a spellbinding tale of adventure, magic, and myth.

What the?!

I'm disappointed to see that this book isn't available in an unabridged version after listening to the unabridged First King of Shannara and unabridged Sword of Shannara. Especially when it picks back up after this book with an unabridged Wishsong of Shannara. Seems like somebody dropped the ball on this one.

Get the unabridged version...

Not a bad reading, but much is lost in the telling with this abridgement of the story. Get the unabridged version!

Loved it!

I simply couldn't get enough of this book. Having read it several times in the past I wondered whether the audio version could keep me sufficiently engaged but it surpassed my expectations.
