Welcome, readers of Shady Vale! Knights of Tyrsis! Home Guard of Arborlon! Welcome, one-and-all, to the reread of Terry Brooks’ classic epic fantasy novel, The Elfstones of Shannara. For the next several weeks, leading up to MTV’s debut of The Shannara Chronicles in January, 2016, we’ll join Amberle, Wil, Allanon, Eretria, and the elves of the Westland in their quest for the Bloodfire, and their war against the Dagda Mor and his demons of the Forbidding.
