Bloodfire Quest by Terry Brooks is in fine bookstores now!

That’s right. The second book in the Dark Legacy of Shannara series is now available to all of Terry’s fans in the US, UK, Canada and Australia.

I love release days. I really do. Even though I receive the books months and months in advance to continuity edit, release days are still magical to me. I can feel the energy from all of you, gearing up for a new Terry Brooks book that takes you away from friends, family, work and life for a few precious hours. Since I am sworn to secrecy, it means in a day or two when some of you have finished, I can finally talk to you about the book!

And let me tell you. When you reach the end of Bloodfire Quest, you are going to be happy you only have to wait four months for the July 2013 release of the concluding book, Witch Wraith.

But it will be a long four month wait. I guarantee it!

If you haven’t read Wards of Faerie but you are a fan of The Elfstones of Shannara, you’d better go out and buy Wards. Dark Legacy of Shannara is a perfect companion to The Elfstones of Shannara. It also grows that former tale and that of the Voyage and High Druid trilogies, creating a wonderful conclusion to a trilogy of trilogies.

And the Four Lands will never be the same again!

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.

Let’s hope the four months until Witch Wraith passes quickly!

Because when you get to the last page of Bloodfire Quest, I am going to hear some Demon wailing the likes even the Forbidding has never heard!

Now get to reading!
