The Gypsy Morph
The final novel of the Genesis of Shannara series, The Gypsy Morph , picks up after the exciting end to the previous novel, The Elves of Cintra . Once again, the main players break off from one another and find themselves teaming up with new allies as the stakes grow higher and the tension mounts.
The Gypsy Morph begins with Kirisin and Simralin's continuing story to save their people, forcing them to leave the wounded Angel Perez behind. In the meantime, Logan Tom receives new orders and is instructed that he must abandon Hawk and the Ghosts in order to help Kirisin save the elven people. Finally, Hawk must accept the weighty mantle of savoir for the entire human race, a burden he isn't certain he can carry.
Terry Brooks continues his rich voyage through a desolate and increasingly poisonous atmosphere. The levity and fun of the previous books are set aside for the more serious plotline of survival. The reader feels the tension and strain on all of the characters. Alliances are tested, loyalties are stretched, and each of the characters encounters a moment of doubt, wondering if the right choice has been made. The action scenes are well choreographed and exciting, and the ending leaves the reader wanting more – more adventures with characters we've come to love, more information on their survival, more exciting action sequences that get the blood pumping – in short, more time to explore this reborn earth.
