Cover: High Druid of Shannara

Here is the cover for High Druid of Shannara, the fourth omnibus to be released by Del Rey Books. It will publish on October 25th and comprises the novels Jarka Ruus, Tanequil and Straken in one hardcover volume!

This is a great year for Terry Brooks fans. The Measure of the Magic, the second part of the duology that began with Bearers of the Black Staff, comes out in late August.

But that’s not all we have to be thankful for. The High Druid of Shannara hardcover omnibus featuring Jarka Ruus, Tanequil and Straken will be publishing October 25th.

I like the cover. I think it’s gorgeous. People are going to quibble over the staff not being straight but this isn’t a staff of a Knight of the Word. This is the darkwand. So I can more easily forgive creative license by the artist.

What do you think?
