the gypsy morph by terry brooks
on March 11, 2014
I purchased this wonderful book from amazon,com for my kindle. I love my kindle and I love amazon.com. I have read this great book several times and enjoyed more the second time...I recommend you read this trilogy in sequence: Armaggedon's Children (genesis of Shanara Trilogy), The Elves of Cintra (Pre Shannara) and The Gypsy Morph (Pre Shannara).
The Gypsy Morph pulls you into this drama from the very first page. It is a tapestry of carefully woven intrigue, high adventure, pure evil and pure love. It contains a sweet romance and one romance that is sweet, pure and tragic.
There are several contingents working seperately to bring about one huge effort. One is guided by Angel Perez a Ward Of The Word and possessor of the Black Staff. She wields great magic and power with this staff and therefore is leader of one of the groups. Helen Rice is of great support to Angel. Logan Tom is another Ward Of The Word and is helping guide another group. Then you have Hawk who has been there from the beginning and while he is the "Father" of a group of children but is not much older that his Wards. He learns on this strange odyssey who he is and where he came from.
Then you have at the beginning of this third part Will who is the last survivor in an underground millitary installation that houses missiles with warheads enough to destroy not only foriegn sites but parts of the United States. He tells his story that is heart breaking and final decision and how it effects this great movement of people and brings this story to a rather unexpected end.
all the while these children and adults and other beings that morphed into creatures and half humans that never before existed. All these changes in atmosphere and the poisoning of the earth have come together for the complere obliteration of what we know as Earth. The mission of these leaders is to lead all these people and others to a safe haven where they will be protected until the Earth regenerates itself. This is a very good read and will keep you entertained for ma y an hour.
i highly recommend this trilogy. Terrt Brooks never disappoints. He is one of the great authors.
