Living in peaceful Shady Vale, Shea Ohmsford knew little of the troubles that plagued the rest of the world. Then the giant, forbidding Allanon revaled that the supposedly dead Warlock Lord was plotting to destory the world. The sole weapon against this Power of Darkness was the Sword of Shannara, which could only be used by a true heir of Shannara--Shea being the last of the bloodline, upon whom all hope rested. Soon a Skull Bearer, dread minion of Evil, flew into the Vale, seeking to destroy Shea. To save the Vale, Shea fled, drawing the Skull Bearer after him....

This first installment of the Shannara series captures readers with its breathtaking myths and magical lore. The action in The Sword of Shannara, from author Terry Brooks, begins when the supposedly dead Warlock Lord begins to plan his revenge and destroy all in his path. However, in the peaceful Shady Vale the half-elfin Shea Ohmsford knows of no such danger. When word does reach him, he knows that the only weapon that can prevent total destruction at the hands of the Power of Darkness is the Sword of Shannara, which can only be used by a true Shea bloodline. He knows it is he who will have to fight against all odds to save all the races.
