The King of the Silver River has charged young Penderrin Ohmsford 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.

Shadea a'Ru, the ruthless Druid responsible for imprisoning the true Ard Rhys, has sent her agents and assassins in relentless pursuit of Pen and his comrades. Now if the Free-born forces should fall, Shadea's domination of the Four Lands will be assured. Pen's challenge grows greater when he learns that his parents 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….

    " What a great trilogy of books! I loved it. "

    " Straken, the last book in the High Druid of Shannara series, brings together all the stories from the two previous books. I enjoyed seeing how it all worked out and was satisfied with the ending. In just a couple of weeks, Penderrin Ohmsford lives a lifetime of experiences as he seeks to finish his quest. His aunt is in a terrible place and he's the only one who can help her. Time is running out to save the High Druid of Shannara! "

    " I've always enjoyed visiting Shannara, and this is no exception. This trilogy, The High Druid of Shannara, could be read without reading any of the preceding Shannara books, but Brooks has nicely tied the entire Shannara series together and it's like visiting with old friends while meeting new ones. "

    " Much better than the first two books in the series. I believe he was starting to hit his stride again finally, when writing this book. Additionally, there is decent closure in this book. For which, I am glad. "
