The High Druid’s Blade by Terry Brooks publishes on July 8, 2014.

Usually, being several weeks away from publication, Terry and I would have posted several excerpts from the book for the readers to enjoy. A first few chapters or so, to help soften the wait—or drive some of you crazy.

But this time, Terry decided to do something different for the new release.

He decided to write new scenes!

Every Shannara books has a number of characters, all of which contribute to the tale in some way. Some of those characters get point of view chapters. But most of the them do not. Terry decided to write two new scenes from the point of view of two characters who don’t have points of view in the finished book.

The result? Some extra reading for you to enjoy!

This first “Not an Excerpt” takes place near the front of The High Druid’s Blade. It gives readers a glimpse of what trouble Paxon Leah and friend Jayet have gotten themselves into!

The High Druid’s Blade publishes July 8th.

The beginning of the end has begun…
