“An engaging read . . . Fine storytelling.” -Associated Press

NY Times Bestselling Author

Twenty-five years ago, New York Times bestselling author Terry Brooks wrote a novel that brought to life a dazzling world that would become one of the most popular fantasy epics of all time, beloved by millions of fans around the world. Ten more Shannara books would follow. Now, for the first time in one elegant collector’s edition hardcover, and featuring an introduction by the author, here are the first three novels of that classic series: The Sword of Shannara, The Elfstones of Shannara, and The Wishsong of Shannara—the beginning of a phenomenal epic of good and evil.

The Sword of Shannara

Long ago, the wars of the ancient Evil ruined the world. In peaceful Shady Vale, half-elfin Shea Ohmsford knows little of such troubles. But the supposedly dead Warlock Lord is plotting to destroy everything in his wake. The sole weapon against this Power of Darkness is the Sword of Shannara, which can be used only by a true heir of Shannara. On Shea, last of the bloodline, rests the hope of all the races.

The Elfstones of Shannara

The magical Ellcrys tree is dying, loosening the spell that bars the Demons from enacting vengeance upon the land. Now Wil Ohmsford must guard the Elven girl Amberle on a perilous quest as she carries one of the Ellcrys’ seeds to a mysterious place where it can be quickened into a powerful new force. But dark on their trail comes the Reaper, most fearsome of all Demons, aiming to crush their mission at any cost.

The Wishsong of Shannara

An ancient Evil is stirring to new life, sending its ghastly Mord Wraiths to destroy Mankind. To win through the vile growth that protects this dark force, the Druid Allanon needs Brin Ohmsford—for she alone holds the magic power of the wishsong. Reluctantly Brin joins the Druid on his dangerous journey. But a prophecy foretells doom, as Evil nurses its plans to trap the unsuspecting Brin into a fate far more horrible than death.

Thus begins Terry Brooks’s thrilling Shannara epic, an unforgettable tale of adventure, magic, and myth.

“Vikki Claflin’s latest is a laugh-out-loud, snort-soda (ok, wine)-up-your-nose read.” -Liane Kupferberg Carter, author

International bestselling author Vikki Claflin nails it with her new compilation of hilarious and relatable essays on aging (almost) gracefully in a youth-obsessed society.

Claflin tackles the issues of life after 50 with irreverent advice on love, marriage, and sex, and laugh-out-loud personal anecdotes and musings about aging, BFFs, and fashion after a certain age.

Together with a booty-load of how-to lists on navigating the fine line between trying to stay young (often deeming us vain and shallow), or thinking “Screw it. I’m going to age naturally” (also known as “letting yourself go”), Claflin delivers it all with her trademark wit that made “Who Left the Cork Out of My Lunch?” an international bestseller. Vikki Claflin is every woman whose been there.

She’s us. She’s you.
