The Word & Void series precedes the action in Genesis of Shannara trilogy and serves as the very start of the Shannara saga.

1. RUNNING WITH THE DEMON
In a sleepy steel-mill town, the ultimate battle between Good and Evil is about to begin...

Sinnissippi Park, in Hopewell, Illinois, has long hidden a mysterious evil, locked away from humankind by powers greater than most could even imagine. But now the malevolent creatures that normally skulk in the shadows of the park grow bolder, and old secrets hint at a violent explosion.

The brewing conflict draws John Ross to Hopewell. A Knight of the Word, Ross is plagued by nightmares that tell him someone evil is coming to unleash an ancient horror upon the world. Caught between them is fourteen-year-old Nest Freemark, who senses that something is terribly wrong but has not yet learned to wield the budding power that sets her apart from her friends.

Now the future of humanity depends upon a man haunted by his dreams and a gifted young girl - two souls who will discover what survives when hope and innocence are shattered forever...

`FABULOUS... A breathtaking run of near-catastrophes and revelations... His fans should embrace it as eagerly as they have The Sword of Shannara.`
~ Publishers Weekly

`Running with the Demon is by far the best of Terry Brooks's many wonderful novels: darker, starker, classically written, and with a brand new mythos to fuel its contemporary plot. I couldn't put it down.`
~ John Saul

`A darkly tinged contemporary fantasy.`
~ San Francisco Chronicle

2. A KNIGHT OF THE WORD
Eight centuries ago the first Knight of the Word was commissioned to combat the demonic evil of the Void. Now that daunting legacy has passed to John Ross - along with powerful magic and the knowledge that his actions are all that stand between a living hell and humanity's future.

Then, after decades of service to the Word, an unspeakable act of violence shatters John Ross's weary faith. Haunted by guilt, he turns his back on his dread gift, settling down to build a normal life, untroubled by demons and nightmares.

But a fallen Knight makes a tempting prize for the Void, which could bend the Knight's magic to its own evil ends. And once the demons on Ross's trail track him to Seattle, neither he nor anyone close to him will be safe. His only hope is Nest Freemark, a college student who wields an extraordinary magic all her own. Five years earlier, Ross had aided Nest when the future of humanity rested upon her choice between Word and Void. Now Nest must return the favor. She must restore Ross's faith, or his life - and hers - will be forfeit...

`[An] urban dark fantasy ... Sharp and satisfying.`
~ Publishers Weekly

`SUPERIOR TO ANYTHING BEING WRITTEN IN THE GENRE ... Terry Brooks is one of a handful of fantasy writers whose work consistently meets the highest literary standards.`

3. ANGEL FIRE EAST
When Running with the Demon appeared two years ago, it was recognized at once as a masterpiece in the making, a bold departure that promised to revitalize contemporary urban fantasy and showcase Terry Boorks's 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 bestselling 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 twenty-five years. A rootless wanderer scarred as deeply by the magic he weilds as by the unspeakable horrors he has witnessed in its service, Ross is driven by dreams that show the world reduced to blood and ashed by the Void and its minions. The grim future 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.

`That is Brooks' way of casting spells - transporting his readers into plausible realms where sorcery is alive, whether those places are in other ages or right in the middle of our own. As a result, he's reaped more than a few magical moments...`
~ Seattle Times

`Superior to most of the fantasy fiction being published today.`
~ Rocky Mountain News
