About the Author

Terry Brooks is the New York Times bestselling author of more than twenty-five books, including the Genesis of Shannara novels Armageddon's Children and The Elves of Cintra; The Sword of Shannara; the Voyage of the""Jerle Shannara trilogy: Ilse Witch, Antrax, and Morgawr; the High Druid of Shannara trilogy: Jarka Ruus, Tanequil, and Straken; the nonfiction book Sometimes the Magic Works: Lessons from a Writing Life; and the novel based upon the screenplay and story by George Lucas, "Star Wars(R) Episode I The Phantom Menace."(TM) His novels Running with the Demon and A Knight of the Word were selected by the "Rocky Mountain News "as two of the best science fiction/fantasy novels of the twentieth century. The author was a practicing attorney for many years but now writes full-time. He lives with his wife, Judine, in the Pacific Northwest.


In Book 1 of his "Legends of Shannara" duology, set 500 years after his "Genesis of Shannara" trilogy, Brooks ( returns to the hidden valley where remnants of Earth's people survived in isolation. The last Knight of the Word, two adolescent trackers, and a rebellious Elf princess stand firm between invading hordes and a vulnerable society grown too complacent to recognize peril. Brooks sticks to the proven formula-young protagonists, good vs. evil, and a series of cliffhangers toward the end. Audie Award winner Phil Gigante's (The Dark Highlander) dramatized narration guides listeners through all the viewpoint and scene changes. This high-quality adventure will appeal to adult and YA fantasy fans, including those new to the world of Shannara. ["Brooks demonstrates an ability to bring together ancient magic and postmodern characters in a new look at his fantasy universe," read the review of the New York Times best-selling Del Rey: Ballantine hc, LJ 7/10.-Ed.]-Janet Martin, Southern Pines P.L., NC (c) Copyright 2010.

"Terry Brooks displays the sure hand of a master. Bearers of the Black Staff is filled with iconic characters and heroes not diminished but made human by their flaws. A finely-wrought tale of sacrifice, adventure, betrayal, magic, loss, and a world on the precipice."--Brent Weeks, author of "The Way of Shadows "
