The Opponents of Third Isaiah:Reconstructing the Cultic History of the Restoration Brooks Schramm
The world of Shannara is brimming with untold stories and unexplored territory. Now bestselling author Terry Brooks breaks new ground with a standalone adventure that´s sure to thrill veteran readers and recent converts alike. The mysterious, magic-wielding Druid order has existed for long ages, battling any evil that threatens the Four Lands-and struggling to be understood and accepted by outsiders. But their hopes of building goodwill are dashed when a demon´s murderous rampage at a peace summit leaves their political opponents dead-casting new suspicions upon the Druids and forcing them to flee from enemies both mortal and monstrous. Paxon Leah, the order´s appointed protector, knows that blame lies with Arcannen Rai, the vile sorcerer he has battled and defeated before. But there´s no time to hunt his nemesis, if he is to lead the wrongfully accused Druids to their sanctuary. It is a quest fraught with danger, as a furious government agent and his army snap at their heels, and lethal predators stalk them in the depths of the untamed wilderness. But Arcannen is playing a deeper game than Paxon realizes. Paxon´s sister possesses a powerful magic that the sorcerer longs to control-but Arcannen has not reckoned with the determination of his own estranged daughter, Leofur, who is also Paxon´s devoted lifemate. Leofur sets out on a perilous quest to thwart her father´s desires-while the vengeful Arcannen conjures his blackest magical skills, determined to destroy them all . . . and claim the most powerful of magics for his own.
California has never had a female governor and Morgan Childs is determined to change that with the help of her friends. Gathering the backing of the wealthiest women in California, she convinces her best friend, Brooks Kennedy, to run for governor.

Once she convinces the team of her tactics, they do whatever it takes to get incriminating evidence on Brooks´s opponents. One by one each candidate is forced to withdraw from the governor´s race, and Morgan couldn´t be happier, until someone attempts to kill Brooks. With so many enemies, Brooks has no idea who wants her dead. When a secret is revealed, Morgan feels betrayed and will stop at nothing to get revenge. Now, Brooks doesn´t know who to trust and the women stand to lose more than they bargained for. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rebecca Vaughn.
