The Elves Of Cintra

The Elves Of Cintra

***50 MILLION TERRY BROOKS COPIES SOLD AROUND THE WORLD***

THE SHANNARA CHRONICLES IS NOW A MAJOR TV SERIES

‘Terry’s place is at the head of the fantasy world’ Philip Pullman

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. . .

Reviews

I would not be writing epic fantasy today if not for Shannara
Peter V. Brett, author of THE PAINTED MAN
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

I can't even begin to count how many of Terry Brooks's books I've read (and re-read) over the years
Patrick Rothfuss, author of THE NAME OF THE WIND
If you haven't read Terry Brooks, you haven't read fantasy
Christopher Paolini, author of ERAGON
A brilliant apocalyptic fantasy novel that will have readers on the edge of their seats from the start.
