the conclusion. Pen rescues his Aunt Grianne[the former Ilse Witch] from the Forbidding. She dissolves the Druid Council and re-establishes it with young druids. She then goes to the Tanequil and exchanges herself for Cinnaminson.

Wide open for future novels tho. Enjoyed this novel enough to buy all 3, lol

gets a bit more heavyhanded in the philosophy department. Reminds me more of the Word & Void series. I feel like he created great characters in Jerle Shannara and now has degraded them by placing them in this story. I don’t plan on buying this trilogy as of now.

Yet another Shannara book. Enemies seem to be hard to find, and so he reaches into the Forbidden and finds some evil mastermind to cause everyone problems. Not nearly as good as the Jerle Shannara trilogy. I didn’t care about the characters.
