Classic Brooks for the fans

Bearers of the Black Staff (Legends of Shannara, #1)Bearers of the Black Staff by Terry Brooks
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I've been following the Shanarra branch of the franchise since nearly the beginning and loved how his last trilogy (Armageddon's Children) tied in Shanarra with the Knight of the Word.  This is a great follow up.
