NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * "In this exciting first of a new fantasy trilogy, bestseller Brooks effortlessly connects the Tolkien-infused magic of his Shannara books . . . with the urban, postapocalyptic world of his Word and the Void series. . . . Longtime Brooks fans and newcomers will be riveted."-- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

In our world's near future, civilization has fallen into terrifying chaos. Navigating the scarred landscape that once was America and guided by a powerful talisman, Logan Tom has sworn an oath to seek out a remarkable being born of magic and destined to lead the final fight against darkness. In time, Logan's path will cross with others: Angel Perez, herself a survivor of death-dealing forces, and a makeshift family of refugees forced to survive among street gangs, mutants, and marauders. Common purpose will draw Logan and his allies together. Their courage and convictions will be tested and their fates will be decided, as their singular crusade begins: to take back, or lose forever, the only world they have.

"Dynamic . . . compelling . . . mesmerizing . . . [with] a cliff-hanger that leaves readers salivating for the sequel."-- Booklist (starred review)

"Strongly recommended . . . a transformative work."-- SFRevu

Very entertaining - puts you in a world similar to The Walking Dead. If you've read any of the other Shannara books, this one will serve as a good diversion off the beaten path. Brooks' writing is slightly more efficient and the setting is close to our modern day.

I had never read any of Brooks' work before this, and thought is would be give me a chance to check him out without knowing any of his other stories. True, this book stands on its own. It paints a very complete and intricate picture. My only complaint is that it stops right in mid-

Very enjoyable. This series is apparently looping to being the start of Brook's classic elfstones saga but it is very well done and does not seem forced about it. At least in the first book.

Enjoyable fantasy, this trilogy is worth a read. If you haven't read Terry Brooks this is a good place to start
