The new tale featuring Garet Jax!
The Weapons Master’s Choice by Terry Brooks is e-published now!
It is the second of three e-short stories in the Paladins of Shannara e-series. The first was Allanon’s Quest, featuring the Druid Allanon and his efforts in locating the last heir of Shannara.
For The Weapons Master’s Choice, Terry has returned to one of his best characters ever—Garet Jax! To say Garet is a fan favorite is a vast understatement. Terry waited for the right story to come around, it did, and he wrote it. Now it is published! If you are a long-time fan or someone who wants to try Terry’s work for the first time, The Weapons Master’s Choice is a great choice.
Here is a bit more about the new short story:
A city besieged by a powerful warlock seeks salvation from a fabled warrior in the second of three gripping new stand-alone eBook short stories set in the world of the fantasy-fiction phenomenon that is Shannara—by beloved New York Times bestselling author Terry Brooks.
His extraordinary—and deadly—skills have earned Garet Jax renown and infamy as the man called the Weapons Master. Rootless, solitary, and endlessly sought after, he roams the Four Lands, loyal to none but himself . . . and whomever can afford his services as warrior, assassin, and avenger for hire. But Lyriana is unlike any who have come to him before: as beautiful as she is bold, as enigmatic as the distant city she is desperate to save, and possessed of an intangible, irresistible allure that entices even the hardened Garet Jax more than any amount of gold or silver ever could.
But the challenge she comes bearing may give even the celebrated Weapons Master pause. The remote city of Tajarin, Lyriana’s home, is being laid to waste by an immensely powerful and boundlessly evil warlock of the deadliest order. With the populace enslaved and no champion to stand against the invader, Tajarin will soon be wiped from the map—perhaps only the first city to fall. Whatever hope exists rests in the deft hands, lethal blades, and unerring instincts of Garet Jax. With righteous fury in his blood, and feelings he has never before known in his heart, he will face the most dire of enemies, and dare the blackest of fates, for the mysterious woman at his side—whose deepest secrets have yet to be revealed.
Last year, instead of reading from the forthcoming Bloodfire Quest, Terry read from The Weapons Master’s Choice. I got it on video. Terry read from the first 1/5 of the short story or so. Here is that video, which includes the reading and a Q&A session afterward:

Love the story. Thanks, Terry. Looking forward to the next one, and the next installment of The Dark Legacy of Shannara. Take care. Keep warm.
Very good story! I do believe it’s time for standalone books for Jax, Allanon, etc. These short stories just leave you wanting more!
Just read it today. As with the Allanon short story, my only complaint is that is wasn’t long enough. 😉
Hi Terry, I enjoyed your book. Next to The Wishsong Of Shannara,this is the best book I’ve read.
I’ve just reread The Elfstones of Shannara for the hundredth time (according to my sister). It’s a great book.
I just finished reading the three short stories and was wondering if and when you are coming out with anymore Shannara short stories?
A unique and amazing tale. Terry Brooks is a genius, his talent for writing fantasy is extraordinary.
