About The Elves of Cintra
The Elves of Cintra Audiobook is the second book in Terry Brooks’s fantasy trilogy entitled Genesis of Shannara, which bridges the events of Brooks’ Word and Void trilogy with his Shannara series.

About Genesis of Shannara
The Genesis of Shannara is the title of a series of novels written by Terry Brooks. Three books in this series, “Armageddon’s Children, The Elves of Cintra and The Gypsy Morph” are both a prequel to the other Shannara audiobooks and a sequel to the Word and the Void. That said, it doesn’t draw too heavily on the other series, and you could easily read it and enjoy it even if you’ve never read a Terry Brooks book before.
Set in the late 21st century, Genesis of Shannara depicts a world utterly destroyed by war and environmental disaster. “Armageddon’s Children,” “The Elves of Cintra,” and “The Gypsy Morph”–is both a prequel to the other Shannara books and a sequel to the Word and the Void. That said, it doesn’t draw too heavily on the other series, and you could easily read it and enjoy it even if you’ve never read a Terry Brooks book before.
Across the ruined landscape that is America – hopelessly poisoned, plague-ridden, burned, and besieged by demon armies bent on exterminating all mortal life – two pilgrims have been summoned to serve the embattled cause of good. Logan Tom has journeyed to desolate Seattle to protect a ragged band of street urchins and the being known as the gypsy morph, who is both mortal and magical, and destined to save mankind unless he is destroyed.
Likewise, Angel Perez has her own quest, one that will take her from the wreckage of Los Angeles to a distant, secret place untouched by the horrors of the nationwide blight – a place where the race of Elves has dwelled since before man existed. But close behind these lone Knights of the Word swarm the ravening forces of the Void.
As the menacing thunder of war drums heralds the arrival of the demons and their brutal minions in Seattle, the young survivors who call themselves the Ghosts are forced to brave the dangerous world of gangs, mutants, and worse to escape the invasion. And Logan Tom must infiltrate a refugee compound to rescue Hawk, the leader of the street urchins, who has yet to learn the truth about who and what he is.
Meanwhile, Angel Perez has joined an equally urgent mission: to find the Ellcrys, a fabled talisman crucial to protecting the Elven realm against an influx of unspeakable evil from the dread dimension known as the Forbidding. But Angel and her Elven allies must beware – for a demon spy, with a monstrous creature at its command, walks among them.
As the legions of darkness draw the noose tighter, and the time of confrontation draws near, those chosen to defend the soul of the world must draw their battle lines and prepare to fight with, and for, their lives. If they fail, humanity falls.
The second book in Brooks’ Genesis of Shannara series is full of exciting, escapist fun. This book introduces several new characters along the way along with odd and enjoyable encounters and challenges but some of the characters introduced in the book seem perfunctory and it reads like about 100 pages were cut from the story (the second half seems rushed).
The Elves of Cintra Audiobook Mp3 is a magnificent audiobook. I’ve listened to all of Terry Brooks’ previous books, and his unique storytelling style continues to shine through with each new book he releases. This is true with this book, as well. The characters are well-developed and the reader can easily identify with them. The story is wonderfully created and flows together very nicely. The ending is the perfect lead-in to the next book in the series.
I give this audiobook my highest recommendation. Terry Brooks is one of the masters of the fantasy genre, and this great book maintains his spot at the top of the list. Listen to this great book and experience fantasy fiction at its absolute best.
