The Elfstones of Shannara and The Wishsong of Shannara by Terry Brooks are two masterpieces of epic fantasy!
As you probably already know, MTV and Sonar Entertainment are adapting The Elfstones of Shannara into a ten episode TV season titled The Shannara Chronicles. Terry Brooks is an executive producer on the project and he’s played an integral role in bringing his story to TV film. I have watched the show and they’ve done a great job maintaining the overall integrity of the story while making some minor changes that bring it more in line with the entirety of the other Shannara books. And wow, did they get Allanon, Wil, Amberle, and especially Eretria right in the adaptation!
In celebration of The Shannara Chronicles, Penguin Random House and MTV have put together new cover artwork, to be featured on the paperbacks of Elfstones and Wishsong. These books will be available in US bookstores on December 1st! No word on international new covers.
And here they are! Click to embiggin’!
In my opinion—if my biased opinion matters at all, of course—these two books will make excellent gifts for the fantasy reader in your life!
And for your own shelves, of course!
Again, these will be available December 1, 2015 in fine US bookstores!
The Shannara Chronicles premieres January 5, 2016!
