Terry Brooks Book Signing for The Measure of the Magic
For 500 years, the survivors have lived peacefully. Now, the magic that kept them safe for so many centuries has vanished, and thousands of lives are in danger unless two young magic-wielders can stop it.
After more than three decades captivating epic-fantasy readers, the storytelling magic of Terry Brooks's Shannara saga continues to enthrall. Now, the fascinating chronicle of Shannara's prehistory reaches a peak in The Measure of the Magic (Del Rey), the sequel to Bearers of the Black Staff. The Genesis of Shannara trilogy — Armageddon's Children, The Elves of Cintra, and The Gypsy Morph — followed the fall of our world into the hands of demons and the escape of a few humans, elves, and others into a remote mountain valley walled in by impenetrable magic.
Terry Brooks is the New York Times bestselling author of more than twenty-five books; the nonfiction book Sometimes the Magic Works: Lessons from a Writing Life; and the novel based upon the screenplay and story by George Lucas, Star Wars®: Episode I The Phantom Menace.™ His novels Running with the Demon and A Knight of the Word were selected by the Rocky Mountain News as two of the best science fiction/fantasy novels of the twentieth century.
