One of the first second-generation fantasy series, and among [[LongRunners the longest running]], ''Creator/TerryBrooks'' series, Shannara began in 1977 with a {{doorstopper}} called ''The Sword of Shannara'', but is now a nineteen-volume series which includes a trilogy of urban fantasies. It should be noted that ''The Sword of Shannara'' was the first high fantasy novel to become a mainstream bestseller, demonstrating to the publishing industry that there was a market for fantasy; the genre, at least as we know it, might not exist otherwise. The series was later adapted for television by MTV as ''Series/TheShannaraChronicles'', based on the second book of the series and premiering in the United States on January 5, 2016.

By the time ''Sword of Shannara'' kicks off, Allanon is the only surviving good Druid. He arrived in a small village, told the hero, Shea Ohmsford, that he was actually the [[ChangelingFantasy last of the bloodline of the famous Elf King, Jerle Shannara]], and the only person able to use the titular McGuffin to kill the Warlock Lord. He [[YouWillKnowWhatToDo refused to explain how to use it, though.]] After a long journey, many mishaps, a lot of CharacterDevelopment, and one hell of a surprise ending, Shea manages to put the Warlock Lord back in his grave.

* BigBad: One in each of the first three books and then one for each main series - the Warlock Lord in ''Sword'', Dagda Mor in ''Elfstones'', [[TomeOfEldritchLore The Ildatch]] in ''Wishsong''; [[TheHeartless the Shadowen]] led by Rimmer Dall in the Heritage series; [[EvilSorcerer the Morgawr]] in the Voyage of the Jerle Shannara trilogy, [[DemonLordsAndArchdevils Tael Riverine]] in the High Druid trilogy and the dark legacy of Shannara trilogy, and [[HeroKiller Findo Gask]] in the Genesis trilogy. The ''Legends'' duology instead opts for a BigBadEnsemble, with the two biggest players being [[EvilOverlord Taureq Siq]] and [[DemonicPossession the Ragpicker]].

* KnifeNut: Many. Brooks doesn't seem to have the usual stigmas about knives, and doesn't view them as particularly good, particularly bad, or even particularly BadAss. As such, knives in his books are simply a lightweight, reliable weapon, carried by both sides, good and bad.

* SquishyWizard: Thoroughly averted by the Druids, and most villainous magic users, who tend to be ''tougher'' than normal people, with BadAss, KungFuWizard, {{Determinator}} and (for the villains) LargeAndInCharge being common traits. The Wishsong's users are much closer to the ideal, although before you can hit them you have to go through their magic, which is not an easy proposition.
