bloodfire-titlepageBloodfire Quest, Book Two in The Dark Legacy of Shannara trilogy, is publishing March 12, 2013!

That means the book will be released in just over two months time!

Many have called Wards of Faerie a great book. Having already read Bloodfire Quest, I can tell you Dark Legacy only gets better! The heroes have been introduced in the first book and now Terry turns up the heat—as only he can!

Here is a bit more about Bloodfire Quest:

The adventure that started in Wards of Faerie takes a thrilling new turn, in the second novel of New York Times bestselling author Terry Brooks’s brand-new trilogy—The Dark Legacy of Shannara!

The quest for the long-lost Elfstones has drawn the leader of the Druid order and her followers into the hellish dimension known as the Forbidding, where the most dangerous creatures banished from the Four Lands are imprisoned. Now the hunt for the powerful talismans that can save their world has become a series of great challenges: a desperate search for kidnapped comrades, a relentless battle against unspeakable predators, and a grim race to escape the Forbidding alive. But though freedom is closer than they know, it may come at a terrifying price.

Back in the village of Arborlon, the mystical, sentient tree that maintains the barrier between the Four Lands and the Forbidding is dying. And with each passing day, as the breach between the two worlds grows larger, the threat of the evil eager to spill forth and wreak havoc grows more dire. The only hope lies with a young Druid, faced with a staggering choice: cling to the life she cherishes or combat an army of darkness by making the ultimate sacrifice.

In the next two months, Terry and I will be featuring some great new content from Bloodfire Quest, including two chapters and the interior artwork by Todd Lockwood. The Weapons Master’s Choice, the Garet Jax short story, also comes out during that time period.

But today, Terry and Del Rey want to feature an excerpt from Bloodfire Quest! It is Chapter One, in its entirety. There was a small part featured at the end of Wards of Faerie but this is the entire chapter.
