This third in the Genesis of Shannara trilogy is the prequel to the Shannara series. While Brooks revisits his worlds, he still manages to create a brand-new tale and fresh characters. This imaginative take on a post-apocalyptic world is a worthy followup to the previous books. It ties up the various quests and brings it all to a satisfying conclusion.

Destroyed by pollution, plague and chemical warfare, the United States has collapsed, and humans struggle for survival against all manner of predators, mutants and demons. Their only hope is a young boy, Hawk, the magical "Gypsy Morph" who is destined to lead the human race to the promised land.

Logan Tom, a knight of the word,
is determined to protect the young hero as he leads a band of refugees across hostile territory. Meanwhile, Angel Perez, a fellow knight, helps the elvish race, whose peaceful existence is threatened by the forces of the Void. (DEL REY, Sep., 416 pp., $27.00)
