The Voyage of the Jerle Shannara Trilogy, Book 3
Borrow Borrow Borrow
"The action is fast and furious . . . A fitting conclusion to one trilogy and a promising taking-off point for another."—Booklist
Harrowing confrontations with the merciless Ilse Witch and the monstrous Antrax have taken their toll on the intrepid heroes aboard the airship Jerle Shannara. But their darkest adversary now snaps at their heels, in the form of the Morgawr—feeder upon the souls of his enemies and centuries-old sorcerer of unimaginable might with a fleet of airships and a crew of walking dead men at his command. The Morgawr's goal is twofold: find and control the fabled ancient books of magic and destroy the dark disciple who betrayed him—the Ilse Witch. Now at the mercy of those who seek vengeance against her, the Ilse Witch's only protector is her long-lost brother, Bek Ohmsford, who is determined to redeem his beloved sister . . . and to fulfill her destiny.
BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Terry Brooks's The Measure of the Magic.

Excerpts-
  • Chapter One One

    The figure appeared out of the shadows of the alcove so quickly that Sen Dunsidan was almost on top of it before he realized it was there. The hallway leading to his sleeping chamber was dark with nightfall's shadows, and the light from the wall lamps cast only scattered halos of fuzzy brightness. The lamps gave no help in this instance, and the Minister of Defense was given no chance either to flee or defend himself.

    "A word, if you please, Minister."

    The intruder was cloaked and hooded, and although Sen Dunsidan was reminded at once of the Ilse Witch he knew without question that it was not she. This was a man, not a woman—too much size and bulk to be anything else, and the words were rough and masculine. The witch's small, slender form and cool, smooth voice were missing. She had come to him only a week earlier, before departing on her voyage aboard Black Moclips, tracking the Druid Walker and his company to an unknown destination. Now this intruder, cloaked and hooded in the same manner, had appeared in the same way—at night and unannounced. He wondered at once what the connection was between the two.

    Masking his surprise and the hint of fear that clutched at his chest, Sen Dunsidan nodded. "Where would you like to share this word?"

    "Your sleeping chamber will do."

    A big man himself, still in the prime of his life, the Minister of Defense nevertheless felt dwarfed by the other. It was more than simply size; it was presence, as well. The intruder exuded strength and confidence not usually encountered in ordinary men. Sen Dunsidan did not ask how he had managed to gain entry to the closely guarded, walled compound. He did not ask how he had moved unchallenged to the upper floor of his quarters. Such questions were pointless. He simply accepted that the intruder was capable of this and much more. He did as he was bidden. He walked past with a deferential bow, opened his bedroom door, and beckoned the other inside.

    The lights were lit here, as well, though no more brightly than in the hallway without, and the intruder moved at once into the shadows.

    "Sit down, Minister, and I will tell you what I want."

    Sen Dunsidan sat in a high-backed chair and crossed his legs comfortably. His fear and surprise had faded. If the other meant him harm, he would not have bothered to announce himself. He wanted something that a Minister of Defense of the Federation's Coalition Council could offer, so there was no particular cause for concern. Not yet, anyway. That could change if he could not supply the answers the other sought. But Sen Dunsidan was a master at telling others what they expected to hear.

    "Some cold ale?" he asked.

    "Pour some for yourself, Minister."

    Sen Dunsidan hesitated, surprised by insistence in the other's voice. Then he rose and walked to the table at his bedside that held the ice bucket, ale pitcher nestled within it, and several glasses. He stood looking down at the ale as he poured, his long silver hair hanging loose about his shoulders save where it was braided above the ears, as was the current fashion. He did not like what he was feeling now, uncertainty come so swiftly on the heels of newfound confidence. He had better be careful of this man; step lightly.

    He walked back to his chair and reseated himself, sipping at the ale. His strong face turned toward the other, a barely visible presence amid the shadows.

    "I have something to ask of you," the intruder said softly.

    Sen Dunsidan nodded and made an expansive gesture with one hand.

    The intruder shifted slightly. "Be...

    July 29, 2002
    This last installment of the Voyage of the Jerle Shannara trilogy, which chronicles the exploits of the remaining adventurers who set out in Ilse Witch
    (2000) and staggered through the tribulations of Antrax
    (2001), may not be up to the standard of bestseller Brooks's early work (Sword of Shannara, etc.), but it proves once again that he puts out books that sell because of their quality, not just because of his name on the cover. As newfound mage Bek Ohmsford and his cousin Quentin Leah rejoin the Free Rover crew of the Jerle Shannara
    after destroying Antrax, tensions mount, for the Ilse Witch—the Rovers' mortal enemy—has been revealed to be Bek's sister, Grianne, and is now under his protection as she struggles to break out of the catatonic state induced by her encounter with the Sword of Shannara. Worse, the Druid Walker Boh has died, leaving behind only cryptic instructions to those who followed him into Parkasia, and the Morgawr, who trained the Ilse Witch and now seeks her destruction, has captured elven prince Ahren Elessedil and Ryer Ord Star and is using Ryer's talents as a seer to track the Jerle Shannara
    and those who ride it. As usual, Brooks leaves at least as many loose ends as he ties up and drops in several surprises. Some references won't mean much to someone unfamiliar with this trilogy or the larger Shannara time line, but otherwise the book's neat and subtle exposition makes it quite accessible to new readers without alienating current fans. Neither groundbreaking nor recycled, this book is simply a good read. (Sept. 1)Forecast:The simultaneous release of Del Rey's 25th Anniversary Special Edition of the original Shannara trilogy, plus a 10-city author tour, should help ensure another run up bestseller lists.

    Brooks concludes the Voyage of the Jerle Shannara" ," the trilogy begun in" Ilse Witch" (2000) and continued in " Antrax "(2001), with a ripsnorter that leaves the door ajar for the next trilogy he has planned. The evil Morgawr, who created the Ilse Witch, commands a fleet of airships, crewed by walking dead men, on a journey to destroy the witch before she betrays him. Of the group that the druid Walker led on the voyage to Castledown, those still alive--some of them sorely wounded--are scattered across the land, and the warship " Jerle Shannara" is undergoing needed repairs when the Morgawr's fleet approaches. Thereafter the action is fast and furious, and the focus alternates among the various survivors and their harrowing experiences trying to escape the vicious predators unleashed by the Morgawr. The dying Walker enjoins Bek and the shape-changer Truls Rohk to protect the Isle Witch, who has been catatonic since the Sword of Shannara forced her to confront what she had done and become. According to Walker, she, not their original target, is the real reason for the " Jerle Shannara"" Jerle Shannara." The damaged warship makes it only as far as a mysterious island guarded by a sleeping power. There the climactic battle between the Morgawr and the Isle Witch, conscious again and contrite, takes place. In all aspects, a fitting conclusion to one trilogy and a promising taking-off point for another.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2002, American Library Association.)
