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 a very few heroes, men and women imbued with powerful magic and sworn to a high destiny. Logan Tom is one of those heroes. He's 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 - just learning his magic - has an encounter with the mystical King of the Silver River, who promises safety for both humans and elves - if only they can reach him...

A handful of humans and Elves continue their battle against the demons in the moderately gripping middle volume of a post-apocalyptic fantasy trilogy that links the Shannara and the Word/Void series. At the close of the previous book, Hawk, the human-shaped gypsy morph with dormant, but undoubtedly vast, powers, and his friend, Tessa, were thrown off the walls of the Seattle compound. Thanks to some last-minute magic from an unknown source, they're only missing, not dead. Their friends, the band of street kids who call themselves the Ghosts, go on the road to find them, guided by Knight of the Word Logan Tom. Meanwhile, fellow Knight Angel Perez and her Faerie companion Ailie journey to the Elves of Cintra to help them find the long-missing Elfstones, key to saving the Elves from destruction. Unfortunately, Angel and Ailie's mission is hampered by the Elves' habitual mistrust of humans and by the machinations of a shapeshifting demon masquerading as an Elf.Brooks (Armageddon's Children, 2006, etc.) fans will enjoy the ride, as always; others will simply be confused.
