"Terry Brooks displays the sure hand of a master. Bearers of the Black Staff
is filled with iconic characters and heroes not diminished but made human by their flaws. A finely-wrought tale of sacrifice, adventure, betrayal, magic, loss, and a world on the precipice."--Brent Weeks, author of The Way of Shadows
