Publisher's Summary

In this prequel to The Sword of Shannara, in which many details of the Four Lands' history are revealed, Druids, horrified by the misuse of magic, have eschewed it in favor of science. But Bremen the Druid studies magic, and becomes an outcast on its account. Bremen discovers that an invincible army of trolls are fast conquering all that lay to their south. Before them come the Nazgul-like Skull Bearers, disfigured and transformed Druids who have fallen prey to the dark arts. And at their head is an evil archmage and former Druid called Brona. Bremen realizes that if the peoples of the Four Lands are to evade slavery, they will have to unite. But to defeat Brona, they will need a mighty weapon: the Sword of Shannara.

Good story, accents were not.

Story was good, reading was difficult to listen to at times. Nearly everyone had a British, Scottish, or Irish accent, which isn't a problem, except the reader would read the wrong accents for a character if he didn't know beforehand which character was speaking and often switched accents party through a statement when he realized who was speaking. It was frustrating at times having the accent switch multiple times in a conversation.
