The Original Shannara Trilogy

22 works, 7 primary works

...with a few related extras.

This is where the larger Shannara series started, with the publication of The Sword of Shannara in 1977. This book is still a good place to begin the overall series, even though there are several books that take place earlier in the chronology.

Chronologically, these books fall into place after The Legends of Shannara.

To continue the series past this point, see The Heritage of Shannara.
