The Stiehl Assassin publishes June 4, 2019!
It is time to reveal the wrap around cover for Book 3 of The Fall of Shannara, which features Princess Ajin standing amidst the ruin of the Four Lands. That cover is below in all of its beauty and glory! I am currently reading the final draft of the book and it is excellent. It is striking the right balance of magic, battle, and character development – all while ramping up the conflict leading to the fourth and final book in the series!
Terry is currently writing that final book, a bittersweet moment for the author as well as his readers.
Here are more details about the book:
DESCRIPTION: THE STIEHL ASSASSIN
After The Black Elfstone and The Skaar Invasion comes the next chapter in the Fall of Shannara, a saga more than four decades in the making.
The Skaar have arrived in the Four Lands, determined to stop at nothing less than all-out conquest. They badly need a new home, but peaceful coexistence is not a concept they have ever understood. An advance force under the command of the mercurial princess Ajin has already established a foothold, but now the full Skaar army is on the march—and woe betide any who stands in its way.
But perhaps the Skaar victory is not quite the foregone conclusion that everyone assumes. The Druid Drisker Arc has freed both himself and Paranor from their involuntary exile. Drisker’s student, Tarsha Kaynin, has been reunited with Dar, chief defender of what is left of the Druid order, and is learning to control her powerful wishsong magic. If they can only survive Tarsha’s brother and the Druid who betrayed Drisker Arc, they might stand a chance of defeating the Skaar. But that is a very big if . . . as Tarsha’s brother now carries the Stiehl—one of the most powerful weapons in all the Four Lands—and is determined to take his revenge on everyone he feels has wronged him.
Yes, before anyone asks, The Signed Page will be offering signed copies of The Stiehl Assassin. That pre-order period will open in April 2019! The Signed Page still has signed copies of The Skaar Invasion too! It will be discounted on Cyber Monday so stay tuned!
