Terry Brooks - The Sorcerer's Daughter
The inspiration for the epic MTV series, the world of Shannara is brimming with untold stories and unexplored territory. Now bestselling author Terry Brooks breaks new ground with a standalone adventure that’s sure to thrill veteran readers and recent converts alike. The mysterious, magic-wielding Druid order has existed for long ages, battling any evil that threatens the Four Lands—and struggling to be understood and accepted by outsiders. But their hopes of building goodwill are dashed when a demon’s murderous rampage at a peace summit leaves their political opponents dead—casting new suspicions upon the Druids and forcing them to flee from enemies both mortal and monstrous. Paxon Leah, the order’s appointed protector, knows that blame lies with Arcannen Rai, the vile sorcerer he has battled and defeated before. But there’s no time to hunt his nemesis, if he is to lead the wrongfully accused Druids to their sanctuary. It is a quest fraught with danger, as a furious government agent and his army snap at their heels, and lethal predators stalk them in the depths of the untamed wilderness. But Arcannen is playing a deeper game than Paxon realizes. Paxon’s sister possesses a powerful magic that the sorcerer longs to control—but Arcannen has not reckoned with the determination of his own estranged daughter, Leofur, who is also Paxon’s devoted lifemate. Leofur sets out on a perilous quest to thwart her father’s desires—while the vengeful Arcannen conjures his blackest magical skills, determined to destroy them all . . . and claim the most powerful of magics for his own.

Terry Brooks - Sometimes the Magic Works
In Sometimes the Magic Works, New York Times bestselling author Terry Brooks shares his secrets for creating unusual, memorable fiction.

In addition to being a writing guide, Sometimes the Magic Works is Terry Brooks’s self-portrait of the artist. “If you don’t think there is magic in writing, you probably won’t write anything magical,” says Brooks.

Shadea’s airship-borne minions and the relentless assassin under her command continue their fierce pursuit of Pen and his comrades. Eluding death is only half the battle for Pen. To breach the Forbidding and bring Grianne back to the natural world means finding the fabled Tanequil . . . and the talisman it alone can provide. That means journeying into the Inkrim–a dreaded region thick with shadows and haunted by harrowing legends. It also means striking a bargain more dire than Pen could ever imagine. But there can be no turning back. For in her unearthly prison, the Ard Rhys faces a demonic plight too hideous to countenance. . . .

The High Druid of Shannara trilogy draws to a thrilling close as a young hero nears completion of his trial by fire, a banished ruler fights for her life in a wilderness of dread, and forces of darkness and light square off in a battle unto death for the right to absolute rule. Prepare to be spellbound by the masterly hand of bestselling legend weaver Terry Brooks, conjuring at the peak of his skills. For reasons known only to himself, the King of the Silver River has charged young Penderrin Ohmsford, barely more than a boy, with the daunting task of rescuing his aunt, Grianne, Ard Rhys of the Druid order, from her forced exile in the terrifying dimension of all things damned: the Forbidding. With the noble dwarf Tagwen and the prodigal elven princess Khyber Elessedil by his side–and with the outcome of the bloody war between the Federation and the Free-born at stake–Pen has accepted his mission without question. But not without risk . . . or sacrifice. Because Shadea a’Ru, the ruthless Druid responsible for imprisoning the true Ard Rhys and usurping leadership at Paranor, has sent her agents and assassins in relentless pursuit of Pen and his comrades. And in securing the talisman he needs to breach the Forbidding, Pen has paid a devastating price. Now if the Free-born forces–already decimated by the Federation’s death-dealing new weapon–should fall, Shadea’s domination of the Four Lands will be assured. Nothing short of Pen’s success can turn the tide. But Pen’s challenge grows greater when he learns that his parents, Bek Ohmsford and Rue Meridian, have fallen into Shadea’s hands. He must try to help them–but once within the walls of Druid’s Keep, where Shadea’s minions and dark magic lurk at every turn, Pen’s survival is far from assured. Yet it will all pale in comparison to the horrors that wait inside the Forbidding–horrors poised to break free upon the Four Lands when the time is right. . . .

Terry Brooks - Wards of Faerie
Seven years after the conclusion of the High Druid of Shannara trilogy, New York Times bestselling author Terry Brooks at last revisits one of the most popular eras in the legendary epic fantasy series that has spellbound readers for more than three decades. Tumultuous times are upon the world now known as the Four Lands. Users of magic are in conflict with proponents of science. The dwindling Druid order is threatened with extinction. A sinister politician has used treachery and murder to rise as prime minister of the mighty Federation. Meanwhile, poring through a long-forgotten diary, the young Druid Aphenglow Elessedil has stumbled upon the secret account of an Elven girl’s heartbreak and the shocking truth about the vanished Elfstones, which once warded the lands and kept evil at bay. But never has a little knowledge been so very dangerous—as Aphenglow quickly learns when she’s set upon by assassins. Yet there can be no turning back from the road to which fate has steered her. Whoever captures the Elfstones and their untold powers will surely hold the advantage in the devastating clash to come. “I can’t even begin to count how many of Terry Brooks’s books I’ve read (and reread) over the years. From Shannara to Landover, his work was a huge part of my childhood.”—Patrick Rothfuss, New York Times bestselling author of The Name of the Wind “Shannara was one of my favorite fictional worlds growing up, and I look forward to many return trips.”—Karen Russell, New York Times bestselling author of Swamplandia! “If Tolkien is the grandfather of modern fantasy, Terry Brooks is its favorite uncle.”—Peter V. Brett, New York Times bestselling author of the Demon Cycle series
Terry Brooks - Shannara első királya
A mágia borzalmas dolgokat okozhat. A Fajok Első Háborújában olyan szörnyűségeket követtek el vele, hogy Négyföld druidái visszahúzódtak Paranorba, és inkább a régi tudományok kutatásának szentelték az életüket. Ám Északföld felől újabb fenyegetés támad: egy legyőzhetetlennek tűnő, hatalmas troll hadsereg, amelynek vezetője a Boszorkánymesterré lett Brona, alvezérei pedig a rettegett Koponyahordozók. Márpedig őket holmi tudományokkal nem lehet legyőzni. Bremen, a száműzött druida azon kevesek közé tartozik, akik még mindig bíznak a mágiában, ám hiába próbálja meggyőzni a veszélyről a Paranorban élőket. Csupán legközelebbi barátai állnak mellé. A feladat hatalmas és igen nehéz: olyan varázsfegyvert kell kovácsolniuk, amivel diadalmaskodhatnak a Boszorkánymester felett, és meg kell találniuk azt, aki sikerrel forgathatja. De még így is csak akkor van esélyük, ha Négyföld népei képesek és hajlandók összefogni a gonosz ellenében… _A nagy sikerű első Shannara-trilógia előzménykötetében olyan legendás szereplők bukkannak fel, mint Jerle Shannara, az elfek királya vagy épp egy Allanon nevű gyermek. A regény önmagában is élvezhető, a trilógia ismeretében azonban igazi ínyencséggé válik._

With dazzling green eyes that cut to the soul, she was as lovely as her mother, and Ben wanted nothing more than to enjoy his daughter's childhood and his peaceful kingdom forever. But his idyll was interrupted when Rydall, a king of lands beyond the fairy mist, assembled armies on Landover's border and threatened to invade unless Ben was able to defeat Rydall's seven champions. Some counseled the High Lord to refuse Rydall's challenge, but Holiday could not, for Mistaya had been snatched from her guardians by foul magic. And Rydall held the key to her fate...

A démonok érzik, hogy a fa ereje hanyatlik, így közel a szabadulás és az évszázadok óta szomjazott bosszú órája - hacsak a Választottak valamelyike el nem visz egy magot az életerő forrásához, a Vértűzhöz, mert akkor a fa újjászülethet és feltámaszthatja a Tilalmat. Allanon, a druida segítségével útnak indul Amberle, Eventine Elessedil király leányunokája, az egyetlen életben maradt Választott. Kísérője, és viszontagságos útjuk során oltalmazója Wil Ohmsford. Amberle a magot viszi magával, Wil pedig a nagyapjától, Shea Ohmsfordtól kapott mágikus Tündérköveket. Szorosan nyomukban üldözőjük, akit egyszerűen csak Artónak hívnak: a legvérengzőbb démon. Kevéske előnyük egyre csökken... Ugyanekkor a Dagda Mor vezette démonsereg, áttörvén az összeomló Tilalom maradékát, az elfekre zúdul. Könnyű győzelmet remélnek... Négyföld varázslatos világa ezúttal is rabul ejt bennünket.
