    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.

    Hard to press pause

    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.

    Great story!

    I have yet to be disappointed with a book from Terry Brooks and I couldn't imagine anyone but Mark Deakins narrate this story. Just play out at 1.1x s..Show More »

    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.

    Great conclusion to this series

    Ending pleasantly surprising. Characters very well developed. Great story for sure. I highly recommend this series for Sword Shannara readers.
