From the New York Times bestselling Terry Brooks comes a brand new stand-alone fantasy novel - perfect for both seasoned fans and those discovering the thrilling world of Shannara for the first time.
After taking up his enchanted sword against the dark sorcerer Arcannen, Paxon Leah has become the sworn protector of the Druid order. Now a critical hour is at hand, as duty summons him . . .
In a distant corner of the Four Lands, the magic of the wishsong has been detected. Paxon must accompany a Druid emissary to find its source - and ensure that the formidable power is not wielded by the wrong hands.
In a fearsome clash between mortal might and black magic, it is up to Paxon, as the High Druid's Blade, to defend the people of the Four Lands against a perfidious evil.
