The Fall Of Shannara: 'The Stiehl Assassin' By Terry Brooks Finally Gets A Lovely Official Cover

A few weeks ago, due to my excitement for The Fall of Shannara series, I almost created a fan-made cover of its third and upcoming book, The Stiehl Assassin. What I ended up doing is a placeholder cover, because I realized I cannot do justice to the beauty of the covers of the previous books.

Now, I am glad to say that you and I don't have to wait long to finally see the official cover of the said book, because it is finally here.

Check out the cover of The Stiehl Assassin by Terry Brooks.

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 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.
