Armageddon's Children av Terry Brooks

  1. 10
    Pestens tid av Stephen King (lquilter)
    lquilter: Terry Brooks' Armageddon's Children is basically a YA post-apocalyptic gathering of the forces, much like Stephen King's adult-fiction version, The Stand. Brooks' AC is more high-fantasy good-versus-evil, and King's is more Christian eschatology, but both involve dark forces working towards a final show-down, in a post-apocalyptic world.… (mer)

    Liknelsen om sådden av Octavia E. Butler (lquilter)
    lquilter: Butler's Parable duology is a million times better as a work of fiction than Brooks' "Genesis of Shannara" series, exploring serious themes and ideas. But if, like me, you simply like the grim, near-future, apocalyptic, world-is-running-down setting of Brooks, you might also like to explore it in Butler's more grown-up fiction.… (mer)

Not my favorite book by Terry. I am interested in how the story will evolve. I do know that the two worlds are to be meshed together somehow but that is part of the mystery behind Terry's work. ( )

I like the post-apocalypse twist in these books, the others feel more like LOTR - set in a world seperate from ours. I enjoy how he's brought the setting onto a familiar map, but still kept all of his usual touches. ( )

The problem with this book is that it can't decide what kind of novel it wants to be. Post apocalyptic? Fantasy? Zombie (yes, really)? As a result, it runs the gamut, leaping from one genre to the next like a child on a trampoline. The results are not pretty. ( )

Brooks torna ai massimi livelli raggiunti con il primo ciclo di Shannara, questo libro oltre ad essere godibile è risultato eccezionale. Per fortuna c'è molto più dinamismo rispetto al ciclo del Verbo e del Vuoto, e nonostante l'autore continui ad essere a volte troppo logorroico nelle descrizioni, l'atmosfera è davvero stupenda, e già dalle prime pagine ti invoglia a leggere sempre più perché devi sapere come va avanti. Qualche sorpresa rende il tutto assolutamente eccellente. ( )

I have long been told that Terry Brooks was a writer i would enjoy, but i really had no strong desire to start reading his mammoth Shannara series. 19 books is quite a commitment to a single author, as such, i just never got around to reading any of them.

About six months ago, i ran across a copy of Armageddon's Children on the cheap. I read the inside cover and it was pretty clear that this was a standalone book, and a nice introduction into Brooks, with out having to commit myself to a mass reading project. i picked up the book and read it, enjoying the whole plot. Unfortunately, the book ended up not being a standalone. Instead, it was the first book in a standalone TRILOGY. the prequels to the Shannara series... damn you publishing house.. damn you. The other two books are "The Elves of Cintra" and "They Gypsy Morph"

I searched out and found matching hardback copies of the rest of the trilogy and got sucked into the story with absolutely no effort.

The series is pretty solid. it details the journey of a band of children living in the pac nw after the world has essentially ended. radiation has created waves of mutation in humans. healthy people are holing up in fortresses for safety, often times made out of the largest populace centers available, stadiums.

One band of children, led by a boy named Hawk, live in the pioneer square area of seattle. they are fending for themselves and eking out a moderate existence as a surrogate family.

Hawk has a dream that he will lead the children to a safe world where they can thrive in safety. the children follow him almost like a father figure.

From an alternate location, Logan Tom, is a Knight of the Word. he hunts demons that roam the planet, seeking to destroy all that exists, seeking dominance over the world. Logan Tom is sent by the essence of existence, the "Word" to find Hawk and help him achieve his goals. He must do this before the world in engulfed in a flaming apocalypse which will destroy everything.

There are a lot of sub plots and a large number of characters i do not make mention of. I would highly suggest this series. even if you have no desire to read the whole Shannara series, this prequel set is a solid read and is written in a way that you are never forced to moe on. Shannara is not even mentioned by name.

funny, i finally get why people spout off at the mouth about Terry Brooks. Perhaps i will pick up his novelizations of Hook and The Phantom Menace and read those soon.
