Favorite Quote:  But I am so tired, he thought.  Father, I am so tired.

Synopsis (Amazon):  Horror stalked the Four Lands as the Ildatch, ancient source of evil, sent its ghastly Mord Wraiths to destroy Mankind. Only Druid Allanon held the magic power of wishsong that could make plants bloom instantly or turn trees from green to autumn gold. But she, too, was in mortal danger, and Ildatch waited for Brin to fall into his trap....

Review:  This book was very good.  Not quite as good as the book the preceded it, but still very good.  It's another tale of good versus evil and how easily the line between them becomes blurred, but the characters are likable (especially the gnome named Slanter) and the story well-written and hard to put down.  I'm on to the next book in this series, in hopes that the remainder of them are as good.

Rating:  4 / 5
