Following The Sword of Shannara and The Elfstones of Shannara comes The Wishsong of Shannara - the third novel in this classic bestselling series from one of the all-time masters of fantasy
Horror stalks the Four Lands. The Ildatch, ancient source of evil, has stirred to life. It sends its foul Mord Wraiths to make war on all living things and bring about, at last, Mankind's destruction. Once again Allanon, Druid Protector of the Races, must seek the help of a descendant of the Elven King, Jerle Shannara.
Brin, daughter of Wil Ohmsford, has been born with the magic of the Wishsong, which alone can open a way to the Ildatch. Reluctantly, she joins Allanon on his perilous journey east.
Meanwhile her younger brother, Jair, learns that Brin will fail and die unless he can reach her in time. As Brin walks blindly into the trap the Ildatch has set, Jair's only hope of reaching her in time is to travel through the very heart of evil. . .
The Wishsong of Shannara is the third volume of the classic series that set the standard for modern fantasy. A timeless work from a master storyteller.
