In Stores Now!

The Darkling Child by Terry Brooks is in fine bookstores now!

There is little I need to say at this point about the second book in the Defenders of Shannara series. But I’ll try anyway. It is a stand alone novel, set several years after the events of The High Druid’s Blade, where Paxon Leah has become the High Druid’s Blade and a protector of the Druids at Paranor. What I love about The Darkling Child is its tight-knit, focused story. Like its predecessor, the novel is far more personal and intimate. It’s not the world that is at stake; it is the soul and future of one person.

But don’t take my word alone. Publishers Weekly writes, “Brooks’s fans and those who prefer their fantasy on a smaller scale will appreciate the more personal but still high-stakes turn in this famous world.” And Booklist writes, “Brooks’s new entry in the Defenders of Shannara series is brimming with magic.”
