A druid named Allanon comes to the Ohmsford household and tells Shea the evil warlock that Brona has risen and is going to destroy the Westland and take over Earth. He also tells Shea to beware the bearers of the skull and gives him a pouch with three elf stones. The next morning he is gone. Shea and his brother dismiss him as crazy until about a week later during the night they see something outside, wearing a skull amulet. It’s attacked by a huge wolf dog which it kills easily. This is when the boys leave and escape to the kingdom of Leah where they meet Menion who is a friend of Shea’s. Then all three of them go searching for the sword of Shannara which is the only thing that can defeat Brona.
I would recommend this to people who like adventure. My favorite part is when they kill a skull bearer.
