Does anyone know the name of the book in which someone (I think a girl) is hurt by a tree with magic powers near the very beginning of the book? I thought it might be The Sword of Shannara, but there is not such a scene at the beginning of this book. Could it be another book in the Shannara series?
I think you may be referring to the sequel to The Sword of Shannara, which is The Elfstones of Shannara. If I recall correctly, near the beginning a female character interacts telepathically with a tree called the Ellcrys, and it renders her unconscious.
