New Sword of Shannara Anniversary Edition
The Annotated Sword of Shannara: 35th Anniversary Edition came out this month. For those who have not read this series by Terry Brooks, you are behind the curve. A epic adventure where an “ordinary” half-elf, Shea Ohmsford, gets forced into a journey that spans the Four Lands. Shea discovers he is the only one who can wield the legendary Sword of Shannara which is needed to defeat the evil that is beginning to shadow the world. Brooke does an amazing job creating a vast world filled with unforgettable characters. My favorite character, introduced later in the series, is Garret jax, the weapons master. He is one tough dude.
Having read The Sword of Shannara series many years ago, I was so excited to see the short story by Terry Brooks, titled The Paladins of Shannara. For any fan, this closes a few gaps. This approximately 30 page piece follows Allanon on his journey that leads up to his meeting with Shea and Flick Ohmsford in Shady Vale. I don’t want to spoil too much here. I found it free as a digital download through my Nook.
