Description

***50 MILLION TERRY BROOKS COPIES SOLD AROUND THE WORLD***

THE SHANNARA CHRONICLES IS NOW A MAJOR TV SERIES

'Terry's place is at the head of the fantasy world' Philip Pullman


SECRETS REVEALED. POWERS UNLEASHED. A LEGEND IN THE MAKING . . .

It is said that Paxon Leah is descended from the royals and warriors who once waged war with magical weapons. But those heroes are long gone now, and there is nothing enchanted about the antique sword that hangs above Paxon's fireplace.

Little does Paxon know though, that extraordinary circumstances are about to overturn his simple world . . . and rewrite his destiny.
