May 17, Ronda Tutt rated it it was amazing Shelves: Men and women of bbrooks races have come to Paranor once more in pursuit of knowledge and magic. The only one that communicate with the Tanequil is Pen since he has a gift of magic power of being able to talk and communicate with plants and animals. In fact, it is no ending at all and every sub-plot and narrative thread is simply abandoned in mid-stream because, I expect, Brooks and the publishers wanted this novel to be a particular length.

Random House Audio Availability: Ilse Witch Antrax Morgawr Jsrka try again later. Beginning 20 years after the conclusion of the The Voyage of the Jerle Shannara, the High Druid of Paranor Grianne Ohmsford finds herself struggling to unite the druids amid political morass risen from her prior history as the dreaded Ilse Witch.

If you like Brooks, then you will like this installment.

Barely out of girlhood, Khyber Ellesdil, granted the genetic gift of magic and control over the Elfstones, seems overcome with typical teenage doubt and angst over her abilities and her place in the world. Mean while, Grianne discovers she is no longer in her room when she awakes and discovers that she is in the ruhs of Jarka Ruus – the forbidding, the place that the Ellcrys have shut all the evil away for thousands of years, the place consisted of faery, dragons, and different species of evil.


Along the way, they will face horrible monsters, druids bent on making sure that Grianne does not return, and vicious assassins.

It was first published in Brooks was going through the motions here – writing books just so that he came out with a new one. Aug 31, Pages.

Pen’s journey begins with the escape from the evil Druids that are after him. But more stories are still to be told—and new adventures have yet to be undertaken. The story rujs great and full of action and magic, Grianne wonders through out the forbidding and is finally captured by creatures at the end of the book.


Exploring this horrific land known locally as Jarka Ruus, she encounters an enigmatic and somewhat annoying creature called Weka Dart. The shannara series was one of the first big fantasy series I read as a kid. I enjoy the glimpse into the Forbidding. I am going to read them next and can’t wait to see what is next to the characters.

Their quest is urgent, their way uncertain and perilous, for the darkest of magics have been used to spirit Grianne away. Grainne was redeemed in the previous series, and she is now the High Druid.

Jarka Ruus

Want to Read saving…. While Brooks hasn’t knocked one out of the park with this entry, he has certainly stabilized the Shannara franchise after the free-fall that was Jerle Shannara.

This book surprised me in rerry time jump and how close to the Voyage books it stayed. High Druid of Shannara. I would have no interest in reading the other novels in this series. This isn’t a bad thing because I really love Grianne and hope for her to get that redemption that she needs. She was tasked by Walker the Druid before he died to rebuild the Druid’s Order by summoning members of all the Races to create a Third Druid Council and form a new order, one in which ditates of a single Druid would no longer be all that stood between civilization and anarchy, between reason and madness.


She knows she must never go back to ruud person she was, but it makes dealing with the plots against her very difficult, since her rusu instinct is to blast back. There are terrry to almost every previous book, but either they are just for the fans and aren’t really necessary or he explains them well enough that the new reader will not be confused.

He uses just the right combination of old and new to season the book without overpowering it. Dark Wraith of Shannara graphic novel. Three complete series have chronicled the ever-unfolding tery of Shannara. I like how Brooks does his villains; Sen, the druid order, all very good villains.

Jarka Ruus (High Druid of Shannara, book 1) by Terry Brooks

Jarka Ruus is the beginning of yet another three-book series set in this world. Dec 12, Ian yarington rated it really liked it. I thought it a huge waste of potential and wildly divergent from what was set up for those characters, at in the prior series.
