The Talismans of Shannara

Par was found by Padishar Creel hiding in the cellar under the grist mill, but unfortunately a troop of Federation soldiers led by a Seeker followed Padishar. They attempted to fight the soldiers but were being overrun. Just as Par thought he would have to use the Wishsong, the trapdoor behind them was opened from the outside.1The Talismans of Shannara – pp 9-12

Damson Rhee appeared and took them to where the Mole was waiting.2The Talismans of Shannara – pp 12-15

Use of Magic


Par had been born with the Wishsong, almost three hundred years after first came into existence, passed down through ten generations.

Able to use the Wishsong to conjure up images of people, places, events etc that were so lifelike they appeared to be real.
