Terry Brooks was a practising attorney for many years, but now writes full time. His first novel, THE SWORD OF SHANNARA, remained on the New York Times bestseller list for 5 months. Every one of the 25 novels that have followed has been an international bestseller.
Civilization has collapsed, cities lie in ruins, and two Knights of the Word, Logan Tom and Angel Perez, continue their valiant battles against the demons and once-men to save the remnants of humanity and the newly discovered Elves, who have long hidden themselves from the world. Joining with Angel and Logan are Kirisin, an elf entrusted with the Elfstones that can protect his people and help transport them to a safe place, and Hawk, the boy born of wild magic and destined to lead human and elven survivors to a new world. In his dramatic and powerful conclusion to the trilogy (following Armegeddon's Children and The Elves of Cintra) describing the birth of the world known as Shannara, Brooks provides both a stirring coda to his the "Word" and the "Void" series and a stepping-off point for more explorations into the early history of one of fantasy's most enduring worlds. Strong storytelling and unforgettable characters make this a priority purchase for most libraries. Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
