Poll: Who Wins A Battle Between Allanon and Garet Jax?

In January, The Weapons Master’s Choice will be published as an e-short story!

What is The Weapons Master’s Choice? It is a 10,000 word short story that features Garet Jax, one of the most beloved characters in Terry’s novels. The story is set long before the events in The Wishsong of Shannara, when Garet Jax is traveling the Four Lands still seeking a worthy opponent. When he is hired to do a job, he quickly discovers it is more than he bargained for and finds himself enmeshed in a battle not only for his own life but those of the many.

The story is great. I’ve read it several times. Garet Jax is back and I know you guys are going to love it.

Since The Weapon Master’s Choice will publish soon in January 2013 and Allanon already received his short story treatment with Allanon’s Quest a few months ago, I thought it would be fun to pit these two fan-favorite characters against one another in our Friday Poll.

So, who would win if the Druid and the Weapons Master squared off in a duel to the death?

No cop outs.

No “They would tie.” No, “I can’t choose.”
