9780345248046: The Sword of Shannara

Shea and Flick Ohmsford have somehow survived the first stage of their quest. With the aid of their childhood friend Menion Leah, and new companions, the dwarf Hendel, Balinor of Callahorn and the elves, Durin and Dayel, they have successfully evaded capture by gnomish warriors, and eluded the Warlock Lord's dread Skull Bearers. Now, with Allanon to guide them, the company must continue north, through the vast peaks of the Dragons Teeth Mountains. It is a route fraught with more danger, but the only path to their goal - the druid keep at Paranor, last resting place of Shannara's fabled Sword, the weapon Shea is destined to wield. So continues the epic tale of The Sword of Shannara - a classic of magic, adventure and epic conflict, from one of the world's greatest living storytellers. The concluding volume, THE SECRET OF THE SWORD is scheduled for May 2004 publication.

From the Inside Flap:

Living in peaceful Shady Vale, Shea Ohmsford knew little of the troubles that plagued the rest of the world. Then the giant, forbidding Allanon revaled that the supposedly dead Warlock Lord was plotting to destory the world. The sole weapon against this Power of Darkness was the Sword of Shannara, which could only be used by a true heir of Shannara--Shea being the last of the bloodline, upon whom all hope rested. Soon a Skull Bearer, dread minion of Evil, flew into the Vale, seeking to destroy Shea. To save the Vale, Shea fled, drawing the Skull Bearer after him....
