Armageddon's Children Terry Brooks Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

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.

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Terry Brooks's The Measure of the Magic.

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

“Strongly recommended . . . a transformative work.”—SFRevu

    Many will read Brooks for the first time and glory in his world and story-telling genius. Those of us who read the first story Sword of Shanara saw it as a very blatant attempt at ripping off Lord of the Rings. Mr. Brooks even admitted he loved LOTR. And it truly showed in the story. That, that aside, Brooks, like fine cheese or wine seems to age rather well. When the Word and Void series came on the scene I was skeptical not liking urban fantasy. Here, though were the underpinnings of the Vale and the world peopled by the likes of Strider er, uh Allanon and this was welcomed. Yet what I am most happy with is Brooks' story telling. His craft seems to have gotten better with each book he did. Yet he has become a little sloppy lately hence the lack of a star. I would recommend to my friends this book indeed the series which for me seems to become really good with the Elfstones. He has gotten from underneath Tolkien's shadow though I think it a farce to compare him to that writer. The world he gives us is realized only because he gives us our world. Tolkien on the other hand crafted one out of whole cloth complete with history and languages. Give the series a try. I would recommend the reader start with his original Sword of book then go back in time to really appreciate the stories and world fantasy he offers us.

    This post apocalyptic American setting caught me off guard, especially when i learned it was the world that walker boh had walked. The Druids are dead. The dwarves are gone. The trolls long defeated. The elves hide, still guarding the world from the faerie demons. Perfect blend of elf stones and guns. Magic and chemical warfare. Enthralling til the last page, and well worth it.
