Publisher's Summary

When Running with the Demon appeared, it was recognized at once as a masterpiece in the making, a bold departure that promised to revitalize contemporary urban fantasy and showcase Terry Brooks' vast storytelling gifts as never before. The second book of the series, A Knight of the Word, raised expectations even higher. Now, in Angel Fire East, sure to be hailed as his most ambitious, most accomplished work yet, Terry Brooks brings his best-selling epic trilogy of good and evil to an unforgettable close.

As a Knight of the Word, John Ross has struggled against the tireless dark forces of the Void for 25 years. A rootless wanderer scarred as deeply by the magic he wields as by the unspeakable horrors he has witnessed in its service, Ross is driven by dreams that show the world reduced to blood and ashes by the Void and its minions. The grim futures he dreams each night will come true unless he can stop them now, in the present. But for all his power, John Ross is only one man, while the demons he hunts - and which hunt him in turn - are legion.

Then Ross learns of the birth of a gypsy morph, a rare and dangerous creature formed of wild magics spontaneously knit together. If he can discover its secret, the morph could be an invaluable weapon against the Void. But the Void, too, knows the value of the morph and will not rest until the creature has been corrupted - or destroyed.

Desperate, Ross returns to the town of Hopewell, Illinois, home of Nest Freemark, a young woman with magical abilities of her own. Twice before, with the fate of the world hanging in the balance, the lives of Ross and Nest have intersected. Together they have prevailed.

But now they face an ancient evil beyond anything they have ever encountered, for a demon of ruthless intelligence and feral cunning awaits them in Hopewell. As a firestorm of good and evil erupts, threatening to consume lives and shatter dreams, Ross and Nest have but a single chance to solve the mystery of the gypsy morph - and of their own profound connection.

Action and fantasy in one big ball of magic

Third book in the series and a good one. Lots of action and a nice complete story arc. T. Brooks closes some old, dangling threads and creates some new. Very good pace to the book.

Angel Fire East

A brilliant ending to my favorite urban fantasy trilogy. John Ross has returned to Hopewell. With him comes hope. On his trail is hell itself. Few stories are perfect 10s but The Word and The Void are.

Terry Brooks almost reaches the next bar.

The performance is okay but I got used to George Williams so it is odd hearing the characters in different voices. The voice Mark Deakins uses for the Sylvan is especially distracting because it sounds like an imitation Yoda. Let me start by saying I really like and enjoy 90% of Terry Brooks' writing style but I do have this one thing against him, has a problem with, early on, revealing information to his characters that would substantially aid in resolving at least one of the main plot conflicts and then ignoring that information until the climax. This book is no exception. When you hold life, love, friends, and the future of humanity as being extremely valuable you act to protect it if it comes into considerable danger from something truly evil. So, when you know the identity of the evil, where to find it, that it wont give up until it gets what it wants or is killed and that he will kill your friends just to mess with your head, you do not sit back on your laurels and wait for him to start killing, stealing, and destroying. You round up your allies and strike preemptively. While the information is required for the story plot, It is entirely unnecessary and extremely annoying that he provides the information at such an early point in the story only to completely ignore it until the climax. And so, Once again Terry Brooks disappoints and fails to reach the next level.

good series, but not perfect

I do love this series and I really feel that Terry Brooks fell onto something wonderful when he began the Shannara stories and while I absolutely could not put the first two books of this grouping down, the third one left me wanting. The storyline was okay and the ending definitely wrap things up beautifully but I feel that it was dull at certain sections.

a good ending to a good story but it fell flat

the narrator is wonderful for this series. I really felt like he keeps up with each character's voice and I know who is speaking without having to hear their names. the book was a good finish to the trilogy but I felt like a few things were rushed or too easily gotten to for the battle scenes.

You know this bit is supposed to be optional

A great finale to the series it's just a shame Audible doesn't have running with the demon to start the series
