• Trois cents ans se sont écoulés depuis l'épopée de Brin et Jair Ohmsford. La lignée des druides s'est éteinte après la mort d'Allanon et la destruction de leur forteresse. Fondée dans les Royaumes du Sud, une fédération a peu à peu étendu ses ambitions à l'ensemble des Quatre Terres. Son programme : l'éradication définitive des dernières traces de magie. Ses moyens : les questeurs, de redoutables inquisiteurs.
    Le jeune Par Ohmsford, dernier héritier de l'enchantement de Shannara, devient alors le centre de toutes les attentions. La fédération veut le détruire, la résistance s'en faire un allié. Et par-delà la mort, Allanon a besoin du descendant de Shannara pour se prémunir d'un danger encore plus grand qui menace l'ensemble des Quatre Terres.

  • Le druide de Shannara

    Terry Brooks

    L'avenir des Quatre Terres s'assombrit de jour en jour. Walker Boh est tombé dans un piège alors qu'il cherchait le talisman lui permettant de restaurer la Citadelle des druides. Morgan Leah, toujours affecté par le bris de son épée magique, est capturé par les gardes de la Fédération.
    Mais un nouveau joueur se joint à la partie : le roi de la Rivière Argentée qui, de l'eau, fait naître la plus belle de ses créations, Force Vitale. La jeune femme apporte son aide à Morgan et Walker, constituant autour d'eux un groupe assez puissant pour les mener jusqu'à la pierre elfique noire, objet de toutes les convoitises. En dépit de ses pouvoirs, Force Vitale semble cependant ignorer qu'un traître se cache parmi eux.

  • Quoique Wren, Par et Walker Boh aient accompli les quêtes que leur avait confiées le spectre d'Allanon, l'heure n'est pas au repos. Les Ombreurs ont gagné en nombre et en puissance. La maladie qu'ils répandent sur les Quatre Terres menace de ravager le monde. À leur tête, Rimmer Dall semble plus déterminé que jamais à parvenir à ses fins, et à ne surtout pas laisser les Héritiers de Shannara se mettre en travers de son chemin. Si ces derniers y succombent, les pièges machiavéliques qu'il leur tend pourraient signer l'arrêt de mort de millions de personnes...

  • Wren Ohmsford, de la lignée de Shannara, a quitté sa terre natale. Tout comme Par et Walker, elle a répondu à l'appel du spectre du druide Allanon, pour l'aider à préserver le monde du joug des Ombreurs. Sa mission, retrouver les elfes, n'a rien de simple, car personne ne sait où ils se cachent depuis qu'ils ont quitté leur citadelle cent ans plus tôt. Personne sauf la Vipère-harpie, ce puits de sagesse des Terres de l'Ouest. Sur ses conseils, Wren, accompagnée de son mentor Garth, se rend sur le rivage de la ligne de partage bleue, où l'attend une difficile épreuve. Pour trouver les elfes, elle devra apprendre à maîtriser les pierres elfiques, qu'elle craint plus que tout...

  • Depuis la mort de sa femme deux ans plus tôt, Ben Holiday, avocat talentueux, est en pleine dépression. Un soir, il découvre dans un catalogue qu'un royaume de conte de fées est à vendre pour un million de dollars. Prêt à tout pour redonner un sens à son existence, il s'embarque pour New York afin d'y rencontrer le mystérieux vendeur, Monsieur Meeks. Ce dernier, après l'avoir convaincu de l'existence d'un tel lieu, lui fait signer un contrat en bonne et due forme et l'envoie en Virginie, en plein coeur de la forêt nationale George Washington, près de la ville de Lynchburg. Ben y découvre un passage qui le conduit tout droit vers le royaume magique de Landover. À peine arrivé, il découvre que le vendeur ne lui a pas tout dit...
    Cette première intégrale comprend les ouvrages Royaume magique à vendre !, La Licorne noire et Le Sceptre et le sort.

  • Autrefois, Ben Holiday croyait que nul ne travaillait plus dur qu'un avocat. C'était il y a deux ans, avant son arrivée à Landover.
    Depuis, il a tout risqué, troqué son appartement de Chicago pour un château d'argent et sa charge au barreau pour celle de souverain. Naturellement, on ne change pas de monde, de vie, de destin aussi facilement. Il a dû affronter le machiavélique Michel Ard Rhi et faire face au mystère de la licorne noire pour y parvenir. Ces menaces désormais derrière lui, Ben peut dorénavant se consacrer à son bonheur.
    Malheureusement, un roi n'a jamais de répit. Tapies dans l'ombre, créatures magiques et sorcières fomentent toujours quelque attaque sournoise...
    Cette seconde intégrale comprend les ouvrages La Boîte à malice, Le Brouet des sorcières et Princesse de Landover.

    With the Jerle Shannara under siege and Antrax threatening the bold and unwary, the Ilse Witch finds herself fae-to-face with a boy who claims to be the brother she last saw as an infant.

  • BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Terry Brooks's The Measure of the Magic.
    New York Times bestselling author Terry Brooks became the master of epic fantasy with the publication of his legendary debut, The Sword of Shannara. Since then, each new novel in the Shannara saga has brilliantly built upon and deepened the world of breathtaking magic, adventure, and intrigue he created.

    With a fleet of airships and a crew of walking dead men at his command, the Morgawr is in relentless pursuit of the Jerle Shannara and the crew that mansher. For the Morgawr, the goal is two fold: to find and control the fabled ancient books of magic, and to destroy the dark disciple who betrayed him--the Ilse Witch.

  • BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Terry Brooks's The Measure of the Magic.
    The time of the Shannara follows in the wake of an apocalypse that has destroyed the old world and very nearly annihilated its people as well. A thousand years of savagery and barbarism have concluded at the start the series with the emergence of a new civilization in which magic has replaced science as the dominant source of power. A Druid Council comprised of the most talented of the new racesMen, Dwarves, Trolls, Gnomes, and Elves, names taken from the old legendshas begun the arduous task of rebuilding the world and putting an end to the racial warfare that has consumed the survivors of the so-called Great Wars since their conclusion.
    But the wars continue, albeit in a different form. Magic, like science, is often mercurial, can be used for good or evil, and can have a positive or negative effect on those who come in contact with it. In The Sword of Shannara, a Druid subverted by his craving for magic s power manipulated Trolls and Gnomes in his effort to gain mastery over the other races. He failed because of Shea Ohmsford, the last of an Elven family with the Shannara surname. Shea, with the help of his brother and a small band of companions, was able to wield the fabled Sword of Shannara to destroy the Dark Lord.
    Subsequently, in the Elfstones of the Shannara, his grandson Wil was faced with another sort of challenge, one that required the use of a magic contained in a set of Elfstones. But use of the Stones altered Wils genetic makeup, so that his own children were born with magic in their blood. As a result, in the third book of the series, the Wishsong of Shannara, Brin and her brother Jair were recruited by the Druid Allanon to seek out and destroy the Ildatch, the book of dark magic that had subverted the Warlock Lord, and was now doing the same with the Mord wraiths.
    The story that follows takes place several years after the conclusion of The Wishsong and again features Jair Ohmsford, who must come to terms with his obsession with the past and his use of his magic that his sister has warned him not to trust Indomitable by Terry Brooks, appearing soon in the Legends II anthology.
    TERRY BROOKS adds an exciting epilogue to The Wishsong of Shannara in Indomitable, the tale of Jair Ohmsfords desperate quest to complete the destruction of the evil Ildatch . . . armed only with the magic of illusion.
    PRAISE FOR TERRY BROOKS Ilse Witch If Harry [Potter] has given you a thirst for fantasy and you have not discovered the magic of terry brooks, you are in for a treat. . . . The Voyage of the Jerle Shannara should help fill the void Harry Potter fans feel in the pits of their stomachs, and they might even find themselves waiting for the next Shannara novel with the same thirst they have for Harry.
