Terry Brooks is one of a handful of writers whose work defines modern fantasy fiction. His 23 international best sellers have ranged from the beloved Shannara series to stories that tread a much darker path.

Armageddon's Children is a new creation - the perfect opportunity for listeners unfamiliar with Brooks's previous work to experience an author at the height of his considerable storytelling powers.

Logan Tom is doomed to remember the past and determined to rescue the future. Far behind him lies a boyhood cut violently short by his family's slaughter, when the forces of madness and hate swept our world after decadent excesses led to civilization's downfall.

Somewhere ahead of him rests the only chance to beat back the minions of evil that are systematically killing and enslaving the last remnants of humanity. Logan has sworn an oath to seek out a remarkable being born of magic, possessed of untold abilities, and destined to lead the final fight against darkness.

Across the country, Angel Perez, herself a survivor of the malevolent death-dealing forces combing the land, has also been chosen for an uncanny mission in the name of her ruined world's salvation. From the devastated streets of Los Angeles, she will journey to find a place - and a people - shrouded in mystery, celebrated in legend, and vital to the cause of humankind...even as a relentless foe follows close behind, bent on her extermination.

Meanwhile, in the nearly forsaken city of Seattle, a makeshift family of refugees has carved out a tenuous existence among the street gangs, mutants, and marauders fighting to stay alive against mounting odds - and something unspeakable that has come from the shadows in search of prey.

In time, all their paths will cross. Their common purpose will draw them together. Their courage and convictions will be tested and their fates will be decided, as their singular crusade begins: to take back, or lose forever, the only world they have. Download and start listening now!

    " I just finished reading this book. The story in it is incredible, albeit a little sad since it's about the end of the world. You have the read the Word and the Void series that he wrote before you read this series. This series ties the Shannara series with the Word and the Void series. I am amazed at how his books just keep getting better and better. I enjoyed the Sword of Shannara, but his latest books are even better. He just has so much insight into characters and life, and he gives you heroes that you can really root for. "

    " The book followed tried and true plotting but I really dislike serial type cliff-hanger endings. If the author views his work as Saturday afternoon pulp, what am I to think of it. "

    " This book was really good, although it had a long, boring start. After the first 20 pages, it picked up, and was really interesting. There was a good amount of fighting, and an excellent storyline. The book is mostly fantasy, although it does have a hint of non-fiction. The end of the book really left you wanting to read the sequel, which i am doing now. "

    " Another great book done by Brooks. This book the first of three, is a bridge between some of Brook's earlier works that ties it all together. A continuation of the Word and the Void trilogy (starting with Running with the Demon)its placed in future times and provides a a sense of the edge we live on. "
