THE GYPSY MORPH
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.
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)
