Jarka Ruus: High Druid of Shannara Trilogy, Book 1
Devotees of the Shannara series will delight in this sequel to "Voyage of the Jerle Shannara: Morgawr." In the previous novel, the love of her courageous brother, Bek, enabled the Ilse Witch to renounce her evil existence and resume her younger identity as Grianne Ohmsford. The new book begins twenty years later, when Grianne, now head of a Druid Council formed to defend the Four Lands from anarchy and warfare, is challenged by those who cannot forget her former malevolence. When Grianne disappears, only a few loyal friends can help her escape from her prison among the Jarka Ruus. Joined by stalwarts Elf Prince Ahren Elessedil and Tagwen the dwarf, Grianne's charming nephew, Pen Ohmsford, takes the spotlight as the hero of the new trilogy.

|display_description||NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Expect no end of wonders and suspense, no shortage of adventure and enchantment, as Terry Brooks begins the next extraordinary quest in the magical world of Shannara. . . .|
Twenty years have passed since Grianne Ohmsford denounced her former life as the dreaded Ilse Witch. Fulfilling the destiny predicted for her, she has established the Third Druid Council and dedicated herself to its goals of peace, harmony among the races, and defense of the Four Lands. But despite her devotion to the greater good as Ard Rhys, the High Druid of Paranor, Grianne still has bitter enemies. Even her few allies—chief among them her trusted servant Tagwen—know of the plots against her. But they could never anticipate the sudden, ominous disappearance of the Ard Rhys, in the dead of night and without a trace. Now Tagwen joins Grianne's brave young nephew, Pen Ohmsford, and the wise, powerful elf Ahren Elessedil on a desperate and dangerous mission of search and rescue—to deliver the High Druid of Shannara from an unspeakable fate.
