Summary
Hope blooms anew for the Four Lands in this riveting conclusion, not only to the Fall of Shannara series but to the entire Shannara saga--a truly landmark event over forty years in the making!

Since he first began the Shannara saga in 1977, Terry Brooks has had a clear idea of how the series should end, and now that moment is at hand.

As the Four Lands reels under the Skaar invasion--spearheaded by a warlike people determined to make this land their own--our heroes must decide what they will risk to save the integrity of their home. Even as one group remains to defend the Four Lands, another is undertaking a perilous journey across the sea to the Skaar homeland, carrying with them a new piece of technology that could change the face of the world forever. And yet a third is trapped in a deadly realm from which there may be no escape.

Filled with twists and turns and epic feats of derring-do--not untouched by tragedy--this is vintage Terry Brooks, and a fitting end to a saga that has gathered generations of readers into its fold.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The final novel in Brooks' long-running, multi-pronged Shannara series features signature elements: high stakes battles, dramatic magical duels, and the possibility of the end of the world as our heroes know it. Tarsha Kaynin, having miraculously survived Clizia Porze's latest attempt to kill her, knows that's not the end of their battling. Drisker Arc is trapped in a demonic realm, with no hope of escape, until he sees Tarsha in his dreams. The Skaar invasion force continues to press at the armies of the Four Lands, with betrayal and assassins at work behind the scenes. Ajin, Skaar princess, and the airship crew are on the way to test an invention which might turn the tide of climate destruction in the Skaar homeland. Of course, nobody's plans go smoothly. Both the successes and the flaws of the storytelling will be familiar to readers of Brooks' extensive oeuvre, and the way every thread plays out is a satisfying enough place to end the massive epic of Shannara, although of course the end isn't so final that there isn't room to carry on. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Brooks' epic began with The Sword of Shannara in 1977, and generations of fantasy readers will want to read the series finale."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Brooks returns to the epic fantasy world he debuted in 1977's The Sword of Shannara for a final, by-the-numbers adventure that picks up the story from 2019's The Stiehl Assassin as the residents of the Four Lands continue to confront the invasion of the Skaar, who flee the permanent winter that has fallen across their lands. Meanwhile Tarsha Kaynin works to rescue her mentor, druid Drisker Arc, from the perilous realm he's been banished to by the evil witch Clizia Porse. The noble Tarsha and villainous Clizia are thinly developed genre clich├ęs and similar laziness in world-building too often makes this a slog. The story's bare bones will strike many readers as too close to the framework of the Star Wars movies for comfort: a young woman with mystical powers, who has been mentored by an older wizard, must confront another magic user who has turned to the dark side and so betrayed her mystical order. Even longtime fans will likely be happy that Brooks is moving on to a completely new imagined world. Agent: Anne Sibbald, Janklow & Nesbit. (Oct.)"
