The third book in the Heritage of Shannara tetralogy follows the separate quests of Wren, Coll, and Par Ohmsford and their uncle Walker Boh as ordered by the shade of Allanon. Wren, the gifted elf queen, must brave a demon-haunted jungle on her nearly impossible mission to retrieve the elves and bring them back to the land of men. The elves, in fear of evil beasts, are hiding behind the magical barriers of their city Arborlon on the island Morrowindl. Before all is through, Wren discovers that she herself is an elf, the granddaughter of Queen Ellenroh, while Coll, a prisoner Rimmer Dall, leads the villain to his brother Par, and Walker Boh rediscovers Paranor, the lost city of the Druids, by unwilling becoming one of them.

    " I loved the series..LOL "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 2/5/2014

    " My ultimate favorite book in the whole world! Sadly (or happily) you have several books to read before you can start this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ariel | 2/3/2014

    " This book was amazing! It did have some very sad parts that nearly made me want to cry, but over all, the book kept me on my toes and I continually wanted to read more! It was great and despite any sad parts the book may have, the book is worth the read! I highly recommend it and the two before it! "

    " This one I found very slow. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maritza | 1/28/2014

    " If you liked the Druid of Shannara then you will love The Elf Queen "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Blair | 1/20/2014

    " A great read. As Walker Boh is charged with restoring Paranor, Wren Elessidil is charged with restoring the Elves, who disappeared decades before without a trace. In order to find them, she must gain control and use of the Elfstones. Once she does find them, however, she faces a nearly insurmountable task - helping the Elves escape from the island prison they call home which is infested by their own creations turned against them. "

    " I read this back in middle school. I remember liking this one pretty good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric | 12/21/2013

    " I was a true pity that I only had this book in the series. I am now starting from the beginning and maybe I will have a better picture of what's going on. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marita | 12/17/2013

    " I seem to like Terry Brooks books best when they have a female main character. I was also happy to have read many books in between, otherwise it might have been a bit repetitive. Now I truly enjoyed it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tammy | 11/12/2013

    " One of my favorite books when I was a kid. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 James | 11/7/2013

    " This was my least favorite of the four book series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon Vyff | 10/29/2013

    " I read all the Shannara series, they were a great escape for me as a young teen. (Not profound, or really portraying any new type of society--typical fantasy, but rich imagery) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 10/14/2013

    " Even better than the last one in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roger | 10/7/2013

    " Brooks finds the magic more in this volume than the other two I've read. Really interesting take on the elves in taking us along for Wren Ohmsford's search for the long absent elves of Shannara. Good characters and great action throughout. Looking forward to the final volume. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vampiress_demitri | 9/25/2013

    " Magic and adventure plus danger. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Celticoracle | 9/10/2013

    " I'm finding I like the Shannara books more and more as I make my way through the series - this one is probably my favourite so far. For once it didn't feel like the story had long periods of lag, and I really enjoyed reading about Wren. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Oliver Neubert | 3/15/2013

    " Terry Brooks did it again, for me, I couldn't put the book down. Another world and another quest with many twists and turns - incredible imagination and wonderful descriptions of the rescue of the elves "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 1/27/2013

    " This was one of my favorites of the Heritage series - probably because I'm a sucker for elves and rocs "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fedaykin | 12/10/2012

    " Now this one was really good. It was very tense, I loved some characters, I hated some characters, I was really involved in the story. This was one of my favorite of this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenifer1223 | 3/21/2011

    " Ok, this was just a great book. Wren is awesome!!! I think anyone new to the Shannara Saga or those who know of it, but haven't read this book, are missing out. I couldn't put it down! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 heather | 1/10/2011

    " meh. back to flat characters and little by way of real forward plot momentum. this is probably the least interesting book in this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allison | 1/3/2011

    " The book follows Wren's journey to discover the lost elves and to find out about herself. She finds the elves, and in the process discovers the history of the problems that plague Shannara. I enjoyed reading it. "

    " I just couldn't get into this book. I liked the premise, and the first few chapters were interesting, then it died for me. I've run into this with other Terry Brooks, so perhaps it's just a matter of the author's style... "
