Fifty years from now, our world looks very different. Governments have fallen. Thousands live in fortified strongholds; others roam the landscape as either predator or prey. Standing against the forces that have tipped the balance from good to evil are a very few heroes, men and women imbued with powerful magic and sworn to a high destiny. Logan Tom is one of those heroes. He's on a desperate quest to deliver the street kids he rescued in Seattle to safety. So, too, is Angel Perez, who is leading a second group in the Oregon wilderness where she encounters the long-hidden Elves of Cintra. And Hawk - just learning his magic - has an encounter with the mystical King of the Silver River, who promises safety for both humans and elves - if only they can reach him...

Brooks never fails to exceed my highest expectations! The story picks up right at the end of Armageddon's Children. By the ways of the King of the Silver River, Hawk begins to learn his destiny as the gypsy morph, and to discover his magic. He is charged with delivering thousands to a promised land without knowing how. He'll discover it along the way. Logan Tom struggles with traveling with the Ghosts. They come across increasingly life threatening dangers (high tech robots, Croaks, the plague...), one after the other, along their way to the Columbia River. There is a demon hiding in the midst of the elves, as they begin to discover the Elfstones and their magic. Angel is there to help them along the way, but is troubled with the what ifs of what happened to Helen Rice and the group.
Publishers Weekly, 2007-06-25 Extinction or survival? Brooks keeps readers hanging with the hair-raising second installment (after 2006's Armageddon's Children) of a trilogy blending his bestselling Shannara and Void series. A plague-ridden future Earth faces annihilation from Void demons, once-men and other monstrous creatures. What chance do innocent children have? A pretty good chance when Logan Tom and Angel Perez, the last Knights of the Word, have pledged to defend them. Hawk, a child suffused with unpredictable magic, also helps the Seattle street kids called the Ghosts, but when he's whisked away to the magical Gardens of Life to learn of his heroic destiny, the kids come to depend on Logan and Cat, a part-lizard girl. Playing another important role is Kirisin, a Cintra elf hiding in the Oregon woods, who finds the blue Elfstones that can lead him to the powerful, myth-shrouded Loden Stone. Celebrating his 30th year as a professional writer, Brooks provides another fascinating group of characters tackling harrowing and inspiring life and death issues. (Aug.)
