'The Stiehl Assassin' Continues The Fall of Shannara Series By Terry Brooks, And More On What's Next From The Author

The Fall of Shannara series closes the curtains on the Shannara world created by Terry Brooks. And that is both sad and scary to think that we are almost at its end now that its penultimate book called The Stiehl Assassin is about to come our way.

You would wonder that after this what would we look forward to now... Well, for one thing, he turns to writing Science Fiction with Street Freaks and you may expect some sequels. He will also be writing another book from the Magic Kingdom series. Plus, he already has a concept for a new fantasy series that his agent and editor really liked. So there are pretty plenty of great reads to fill in the void Shannara will leave us.

For what it's worth I am gonna savor the last two Shannara books and I hope The Stiehl Assassin would come any sooner and not disappoint. So far no official cover has been released so I will leave it up to your imagination, but read on for some other details.

The Stiehl Assassin by Terry Brooks


After The Black Elfstone and The Skaar Invasion comes the next chapter in the Fall of Shannara, a saga more than four decades in the making.

The Skaar have arrived in the Four Lands, determined to stop at nothing less than all-out conquest. They badly need a new home, but peaceful coexistence is not a concept they have ever understood. An advance force under the command of the lovely princess Ajin has already established a foothold, but now the full Skaar army is on the march--and woe betide any who stands in its way.

But perhaps the Skaar victory is not quite as much of a foregone conclusion as they all assume. The Druid Drisker Arc has freed both himself and Paranor from their involuntary exile. Drisker's student, Tarsha Kaynin, has been reunited with Dar, chief defender of what is left of the Druid order, and is learning to control her powerful Wishsong magic. If they can only survive Tarsha's brother and the Druid who betrayed Drisker Arc, they might stand a chance of defeating the Skaar. But that is a very big if...as Tarsha's brother now carries the Stiehl--one of the most powerful weapons in all the Four Lands, and is determined to take his revenge on everyone he feels has wronged him.

The Stiehl Assassin by Terry Brooks will be released on June 4, 2019.

If you are interested of Terry Brooks' Science Fiction novel called Street Freaks, read on for some details.

Street Freaks by Terry Brooks


It begins with a dire call-right before his father disappears and his skyscraper home's doors explode inward. Street Freaks is the kind of thrilling futuristic story only New York Times bestselling author Terry Brooks can tell.

"Go into the Red Zone. Go to Street Freaks." his father directs Ashton Collins before the vid feed goes suddenly silent. The Red Zone is the dangerous heart of mega-city Los Angeles; it is a world Ash is forbidden from and one he knows little about. But if he can find Street Freaks, the strangest of aid awaits―human and barely human alike. As Ash is hunted, he must unravel the mystery left behind by his father and discover his role in this new world.

Brooks has long been the grandmaster of fantasy. Now he turns his hand to science fiction filled with what his readers love best: complex characters, extraordinary settings, exciting action, and a page-turning story. Through it, Brooks reimagines his bestselling career yet again.
