The Elves of Cintra (Genesis of Shannara - Book 2)

Author(s): Terry Brooks

Fantasy & Science Fiction

The second book in Terry BrooksâÃÂàlandmark new series linking the worlds of Shannara and The Word and The Void.

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 very few heroes, men and women imbued with powerful magic and sworn to a higher destiny. Logan Tom is one of those heroes. HeâÃÂÃÂs 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 âÃÂàjust learning his magic âÃÂàhas an encounter with the mystical King of the Silver River, who promises safety for both humans and elves âÃÂàif only they can reach him âÃÂæ

Product Information

'Brooks has always aimed for a Tolkien level of epic, fantasy swagger in his work and The Elves of Cintra is no exception . . . a worthy sequel to Armageddon's Children and a pretty damn intelligent fantasy opus. . . The Elves of Cintra is metaphorically rich and politically smart.' DEATHRAY 'What a gripper of a story! In the second book of the Genesis of Shannara series, Brooks delivers a tension-fuelled tale mixing Shannara fantasy with the contemporary world of the Knights of the Word' SFX 'A brilliant apocalyptic fantasy novel that will have readers on the edge of their seats from the start.'
