Publisher's Summary

An ancient evil threatens the Elves and the Races of Man. The Ellcrys, the tree of long-lost Elven magic, is dying, unravelling the spell of Forbidding that locks the hordes of Demons away from the world.
Already the fearsome Reaper is free. Only by quickening a new seed in the mysterious Bloodfire can the Ellcrys be reborn and the Forbidding made whole. Amberle, a young Elven girl, is chosen to undertake the quest for the Bloodfire.
The way is perilous, though. Other demons besides the Reaper stalk the land. Amberle will need a protector if she is to prevail, and Wil Ohmsford, heir to the Elven magics of Shannara, is chosen to accompany her.
Amberle's quest and the fate of the Four Lands will rest on Wil's ability to unlock the magic of the mysterious Elfstones of Shannara.
The Elfstones of Shannara is the second volume of the classic series that has become one of the best loved fantasy tales of all time.

Scott Brick FTW!

Yep. Scott Brick. F. T. W.
Started these because of the TV show, stayed because of that voice.

Good series, slow in places, overall good.

I'm really enjoying this series. It has some very familiar ideas along to that of SoT, LOTR, and WoT. As long as your aren't precious about who had the ideas first ( I'm not) and you understand that they all follow a very similar structure that is proven to work then I think you'll enjoy them too.

great story, ordinary narration

wish the narrator would confer with the author about pronunciations before recording begins.

incorrect pronunciation of Shanarra and Aritrea's name
