Dark magic has opened a gateway to the Forbidding and trapped within it Grianne Ohmsford, rightful High Druid of Shannara. Rescuing Grianne will be merely the beginning of the effort to return the Four Lands to some semblance of peace. Only her young nephew, Penderrin, has any hope of returning her to power. But to breach the Forbidding and bring Grianne back to the natural world, Pen must find 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. And there, Pen will strike a bargain more dire than he could ever imagine.

LibraryThing Review

User Review  - DCavin - LibraryThing

Solid read. A bit better than Jarka Ruus. At points I wished Brooks would get a bit deeper into certain subjects/events, but mostly it remained on the surface; which is OK, too. Read full review

User Review  - Karlstar - LibraryThing

For me, this might have been the best book of the series. Even though it reminded me of Elfstones in places, I still found the characters and the plot to be compelling. If you are a Brooks fan, and like his simple, clear characters and straightforward plots, you'll enjoy this one. Read full review
