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.

First off, I'd like to say I really enjoyed this book. It does end with a huge cliff hanger, but if you plan to immediately get the next book that won't be a problem.

I found it a little easy to get lost in (confused) the story if you listen while working or doing other things. Most of the time it's not a big deal. I spent the whole book thinking Logan Tom was Hawk until the end of the story. I must have completely missed something while working lol.

To that note the story is now being presented kinda like a soap opera, hopping back and forth between different story lines. This isn't bad but a different way of narrating from the Word and the Void series. It seems like all the different story lines will merge up in the end for a big finale.

On a very hot Fourth of July weekend, two strangers appear in Hopewell, Illinois, in the middle of a bitter steel strike. One, a Demon of the Void, will use the angry steel workers to attain his own terrible ends. The other, a Knight of the Word, dreams about a nightmarish future and spends every waking moment desperately trying to change its course. The fate of the town and, ultimately, of humanity depends on one exceptional 14-year-old girl, the only one who can see the otherworldly creatures that have begun to invade her home town.

I decided to listen to this series from the start after watching The Shannara Chronicles recently. I'm really pleased with this book. Terry does a wonderful job building up the story and keeping things interesting. Gingerly seems to be one of Terry's favorite words though. Not a complaint, but it is used often.

Christie Golden did a great job with this book. I really enjoyed the story and she painted the scenes well. Justine does a mostly wonderful job narrating the book. My only complaint about Justine is her male voices. Most of the horde voices always sounds way too stressed and strained. Overall, I'm very pleased with this book.
