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.

4.0 The Sword of Shannara
An entertaining read if a little wordier than I remember this from my first read back in the seventies. It was still worth the time spent listening and I am planning on listening to the rest of the first trilogy as time permits.4 Stars for a fun read and recommended for all fans of epic fantasy.
