The Sorceress of Qar (1966): We return to Qanar, where age-old magic exists side-by-side with the remnants of an equally ancient but less understood science. The alien "Others," with their powers of Illusion, are making a new bid to take over the entire planet. There are two who have a chance of mounting resistance: swashbuckling Elron, and the Sorceress Shannara. Together they odyssey through unpredictable matter transmitters and treacherous terrain, to a climax at the City of Paragamat, in the former Center for Parapsychological Research.
