B&N Exclusive Edition: The Last Druid

Barnes & Noble is doing something really cool for The Last Druid.

Since the publication of The Sword of Shannara in 1977, there have been dozens of Shannara novels published. Each individual series comprising the overall saga has had its own look, its own artist usually, it’s own design, etc. When put side by side, it generates a beautiful mosaic of a bestselling career spanning 40+ years.

Barnes & Noble decided to celebrate Shannara in a fun way. They created endpapers — see the image above — featuring those those covers. Every US book cover, shown next to one another, inside the B&N exclusive copy!

Here is more about the book:

This Barnes & Noble Exclusive Edition includes collector’s endpapers that feature the original covers of the Shannara series.

Hope blooms anew for the Four Lands in this riveting conclusion, not only to the Fall of Shannara series but to the entire Shannara saga—a truly landmark event over forty years in the making!

Since he first began the Shannara saga in 1977, Terry Brooks has had a clear idea of how the series should end, and now that moment is at hand.

As the Four Lands reels under the Skaar invasion—spearheaded by a warlike people determined to make this land their own—our heroes must decide what they will risk to save the integrity of their home. Even as one group remains to defend the Four Lands, another is undertaking a perilous journey across the sea to the Skaar homeland, carrying with them a new piece of technology that could change the face of the world forever. And yet a third is trapped in a deadly realm from which there may be no escape.

Filled with twists and turns and epic feats of derring-do—not untouched by tragedy—this is vintage Terry Brooks, and a fitting end to a saga that has gathered generations of readers into its fold.

The Last Druid publishes October 20, 2020. Get ready for the end!
