Book Review: Armageddon's Children

 

From Will: Terry Brooks has been writing top notch fantasy for decades now. He single handedly influenced the genre with his publication of The Sword of Shannara which was the first book in the genre to top the NY TImes bestseller list. In this book Brooks returns to the beloved world of Shannara and begins a new series.

Armageddon's Children Armageddon's Children (The Genesis of Shannara, Book 1) Terry Brooks' Armageddon's Children may sit firmly in the fantasy genre, but it is also a cautionary tale. The first novel in his new series, Genesis of Shannara , tells of the destruction of our world by nuclear and chemical warfare. The series is a prequel to his acclaimed Shannara books and offers a history of how the world of Shannara rose out of the ruins of our own civilization

 

Armageddon's Children follows the four different paths of characters who are charged with saving the last of humankind. Logan Tom and Angel Perez, Knights of the Word, are on a crusade to pull together the last forces of good, while a group of street kids named the Ghosts struggle to survive in the violent, bleak landscape of a post-apocalyptic Seattle. Led by the mysterious Hawk, the Ghosts are forced out of their sanctuary and embark on a perilous adventure.

While the novel starts slowly, Brooks' quickly finds his voice and the characters come alive. No one creates characters that readers can relate to quite like Brooks. Even magical creatures become people you would like to meet and you grow to care for them intensely. And as always, Brooks manages to dish up an adventure that will have you turning pages until the climatic end. However, Armageddon's Children isn't just an exciting ride, it is a novel that will have you pondering our own plight on a planet that is being assaulted. In fact, it may make you stay up in the night wondering if the future Brooks paints is really a fantasy.
