Summary

The fourth volume of The Heritage of Shannara, which continues one of the most popular fantasy series of all time. 

The Shadowmen still swarm over the Four Lands, poisoning everything with their dark magic. And their leader is determined to destroy all the Scions of Shannara. For Walker Boh, he dispatches the Four Horsemen. For Wren, he sends an untrue friend. And for Par, he devises the most terrible fate of all. With these traps cleverly laid, the charges given by the shade of the Druid Allanon are doomed to failure - unless Par can discover a way to harness the power of the Sword of Shannara. 

Thus continues the enthralling Shannara epic, a spellbinding tale of adventure, magic, and myth....

"If you were delighted and entranced by Michael Ende's The Never Ending Story, you will definitely want to sample one of more of Terry Brooks' books." ( Santa Cruz Sentinel)

One of my favourites

I’ve always loved the Shannara series and Terry Brooks writings. Talismans is one of my favourites and the audio version is no different.

Talismans

Yet Another great book from Terry Brooks. I don't think I have ever known a bad one. The narrator John Lee does an amazing job. I would recommend this series to fantasy readers everywhere
