Älskar Terry Brooks böcker, den här beskriver händelser och känslor på ett sådant sätt att det känns som om man är en del av boken! ( )

Il migliore della trilogia del Verbo e del Vuoto, non raggiunge comunque le vette dei primi libri di Shannara. Anche qui si perde troppo in descrizioni ripetitive e troppo lunghe dei posti. ( )

Eindelijk weer eens een beter verhaal in de serie. Wel met een erg open eind. Wat gebeurt er met Tess en de Zwerfmorf? Misschien verdere ophelderingen in een volgende deel? ( )

Final Battle of John Ross, Knight of the Word. Finds a gypsy morph, powerful wild magic, and must figure out how to use it for service to the Word. He dies, but it becomes a baby in Nest Freemarks body. I could only read a couple of chapters at a time. Sets up perfectly for the upcoming Armageddon’s Children. As a whole, this whole Word & Void series was depressing. The Word creates, the Void destroys. The Word has no hope of ever getting rid of the Void, but the Void feeds on the thought of destroying the Word. I’m sorry he’s tying this into his Shannara series, but it was inevitable I guess. ( )

The last instalment of The Word and the Void trilogy. Time has moved on and Nest is now 29 and living in Hopewell. Her life is turned upside down when two old friends turn up on her doorstep with children in tow. One of those children is a gypsy morph - a being created by wild magics, wanted by both The Word and the Void.

Nest and John Ross are reunited for another adventure. Fans of the series will not be disappointed! ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0345435257, Mass Market Paperback)

Angel Fire East marks the close of Terry Brooks's Nest Freemark-John Ross saga, which began with 1997's Running with the Demon. After a long layover in Seattle for the middle book, Knight of the Word, the fantasy-meets-modernity action returns to Nest's native Hopewell, where once again Nest and John must face off against the Void, this time in the form of ancient demon Findo Gask, who favors a black-clad evil preacher getup for his menacing needs.

Brooks's well-realized and likable cast from the previous books is back, from Nest (now 29) to Ross (haggard as ever) to Pick (still just a few inches tall) and even grown-up versions of Nest's childhood friends from Running, including Bennett, now a junkie with child. Of course, Findo Gask has assembled a creepy little Legion of Doom to harry these nice folks: a giant albino demon; a formless, flesh-eating ur'droch; and a knife-wielding Orphan-Annie-gone-bad named Penny Dreadful. And Angel Fire's main plot thread is even compelling: John Ross has caught a shape-changing, wild-magic creature of enormous power, a gypsy morph, that he and Nest must discover how to turn to the Word before Gask and his crew can capture it for the Void.

But as with Knight of the Word, wooden pacing and unconvincing transitions keep this tale from rising to the level of Brooks's previous masterworks, such as the excellent Shannara and Landover series. If you've read the first two books, it's certainly worth seeing off your old friends in Angel Fire East. But if you're--heaven forbid--new to Terry Brooks, check out his earlier work, or even his very capable novelization of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. --Paul Hughes
