THE ELVES OF CINTRA
Genre: Fantasy, General Fantasy
Brooks returns to Shannara in this second post-apocalyptic prequel. Although somewhat more coherent than the previous book in this series, this novel is in no way a complete story. There's a wide cast of characters in several groups, many of whom never meet. Fans of the series would be advised to wait for the next (and presumably final) book in the series to read all three as a coherent whole.
Hawk, the messianic figure of this series, struggles to rise to his destiny -- to lead a chosen few to a refuge where the survivors can wait out the long recovery required by a poisoned Earth.
Hawk's would-be mentor and Knight of the Word, Logan Tom, is forced to lead Hawk's friends on a desperate trip cross-country after their home city
