Brooks is a true king of fantasy and has been for many years. His books are always magical and this trilogy, of which this is the concluding part, is absolutely no exception. If it lacks anywhere, then I’d say if the plot lines had been paired down more then it would have been nye on perfect.

Synopsis

Straken by Terry Brooks

Imprisoned in the Druid's Keep, young Pen Ohmsford is separated from all who care for him, and at the mercy of the usurper Shadea a'Ru, who will do anything to destroy the rightful High Druid. Although Pen was successful in his mission to obtain the magical staff called the Tanequil, Shadea has taken it from him. Without the Tanequil, Pen cannot open the gateway to the Forbidden and rescue his aunt, the rightful High Druid.

Pen has allies, but they are under siege as well - his parents fleeing from the Druids, the Rock Troll Kermadec and the dwarf Tagwen far away, and the young elf Khyber Elessedil in deadly danger within the Druid's stronghold. Can the scattered band of friends join forces in time to defeat Shadea's evil plot?
