In Book 3 of the Shannara Trilogy, the Ildatch, the ancient source of evil, stirs to life and sends Mord Wraiths to destroy mankind. Allanon, the Druid, seeks the help of Brin Ohmsford to break through Ildatch's protection - for she holds the power of the wishsong, which can turn trees from green to autumn gold. Brin joins Allanon reluctantly...but her brother Jair soon learns that Brin is in danger, and only he can save her. He sets out into the very heart of danger, while the Ildatch seek to lure Brin into a fate worse than death. Download and start listening now!

    " The first "big" book I ever read...outside the bible of course. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Melbie | 2/18/2014

    " Once again, Brooks scored big. This was a page-turner just like the first two. . . --From A Reader's Journal, by d r melbie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angela N | 2/17/2014

    " Silly but fun. Predictable but entertaining. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda | 2/13/2014

    " This is a great author. If you are going to read them start with the first one - "First King of Shannara" because all the others follow the story line. My teenage granddaughter is hooked on them also. So far I have read 11 of his Shannara books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Magnus | 2/5/2014

    " Pretty much the same plot as the 2 first ones in the series, although I think it gets a little better every time. Next one needs to provide something new though if I'm going to continue reading the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leigh | 2/3/2014

    " I enjoyed this story because it was mostly about of quest of the main character discovering who she is. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matt Nielsen | 1/26/2014

    " The third greatest book in the Shannara universe explores the origins of evil and the dark magic that spawns it. But it was hard for me because it was finally the end of my favorite character out of any book Allanon. That dude was just always there when the world started going to shit and the Shannara universe never really recovers from his loss. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shauna | 1/23/2014

    " Although this is my least favorite of this trilogy, it is still an action packed fantasy steeped in the war between good and evil. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ike | 1/22/2014

    " Disappointingly similar to the preceding Shannara novels. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Connor | 1/11/2014

    " was great! the first one was my favorite but this one was my second favorite. loved the storyline characters everything. great read "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim | 1/5/2014

    " Favorite single book of all time... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 12/28/2013

    " I really need to go back and reread this series. I've read the book twice, but remember very, very little about it. "

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

    " its been a while but I loved this series "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Scott Cook | 12/13/2013

    " Same formula: an unlikely hero, a team of interesting characters surround that hero to help him/her in quest, insurmountable odds, etc... Very creative landscapes and antagonists always make this formula work. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve Roach | 11/30/2013

    " This was my favorite of the first three Shannara books. Brin's epic moral struggle with the uses of her magic is well-told and makes this story really stand out in my mind. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna James | 10/28/2013

    " The Shannara Series is just like lord of the rings. It's so awesome. There are so many adventures and you don't want to stop reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Boyd | 9/8/2013

    " This one was a great closer for the original series. I liked the fact that the main character was young and had to learn his skill in magic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 1/26/2012

    " I just loved this series - old as it is, it's still a great read. I'll be moving on to the Heritage of Shannara series........... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rod Foglio | 12/20/2011

    " Very disappointing book, especially after the speactacular Elfstones. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Troy | 10/24/2011

    " A little too much of the same thing but a strong ending should give this 3.5 stars in the trilogy finale "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lilly-Anne | 10/17/2011

    " Just as good as the first two in this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Craig | 12/16/2010

    " When I read these books as a kid they were some of my favorites. Now that I look at books differently these books are starting to push me away. They are boring for me and I don't know if I will be able to read the rest of the series. So many other books out there. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katniss | 12/13/2010

    " Very good, although it took me forever because my kindle made me keep on drifting off into dream land... not the book, of course. No, the book was incredible. It's just I'd been reading on my Kindle for forever and... Nevermind. "
