The Gypsy Morph (Genesis of Shannara #3)
It is the third in a trilogy and you definitely need to read the others to really enjoy it. That said, if you like the others, this will make you happy. =)
Terry pulls all the threads together nice and neat and even threw in a couple of surprises that I really enjoyed.
I tend to be a little vague in my reviews as everyone's taste is a little diffe...more
I read the original Shannara books many years ago and then kind of moved on. The same story kept being told and, frankly I got bored with the plotting and the repetitive and somewhat simplistic style of writing. But then out came Armageddon's Children which dealt with the end of...more
Il libro, di per se, mi è piaciuto forse meno dei due che lo hanno preceduto; sembra infatti che ultimamente Brooks soffra di una "sindrome da finali", producendo finali delle sue sag...more
1: Panther, Cat and Cheney. So they went through all that, and then they were wiped out with the rest of everything when the nukes went off at the end? I mean, I know that people could survive radiation, nuclear winter, etc. It's possible. But... really?
2: Tom an...more
Brooks again masterfully weaves together the separate tales that he has created for each main group of characters, finally connecting them so the reader can gain a different...more

Anyway the most bothersome thing about this is that somehow no one mentioned that this is a Teen/Young Adult book ...all the themes are involving kids or adults that feel too old, and are always feeling defeated. Yes the apocalyptical theme of the 2nd trilogy might be considered mature, except that nothing there is mentally challenging, gruesome, or I don't know: interesting for a proper adult.
Terry writes well, j...more
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 rea...more
This trilogy takes place immediately following the "Great Wars" that destroyed the world as we know it. It follows the children, Elves, and a few ad...more
I eagerly devoured the "Gypsy Morph," Brooks' concluding tale to his quite satisfying trilogy prequel. Written 25 years after the publication of his first epic, "The Sword of Shannara," the Genesis trilogy lays the foundation for the work that preceded it so many years ago. Interestingly enough I read the first of this trilogy shortly before I became ill with cancer. I purchased the latter two while I recuperated, but did not begin them till last week, then consumed them in a fury. Glanci...more
Those who have been fans of Terry Brooks like myself will have read his works that take place after the great wars and the destruction, in...more
My own theories abounded as to how Terry would tie all the loose ends together in this book. A year ago I was mostly concerned that he would cram far too much into this final novel,...more
Also like the other series, there are things that I wanted to know in greater detail, but sometimes it works better when those things aren't explained ... maybe there will be short stories down the road to explain things, maybe other trilogies, or ma...more

Logan Tom has to keep the promise that he made to the boy Hawk and his band of survivors called the Ghosts. Hawk, a magical being called the Gypsy Morph, is leading the ghosts to meet with other survivors in the wilds of Oregon. He is charged with leading them to a plac...more
