The Genesis of Shannara is another fantasy series that I found recently. It is based in a time after the nuclear genocide in the U.S. and many people are trying to survive the changes. The main characters are named Logan Tom, Angel Perez, and a group that call themselves ‘The Ghosts’. The first 2 are ‘Knights of the Word’, are about a group of mages (magic, not parlor tricks) and are on quests to do a combination of things given to them by ‘The Word’ (the supposed goddess of the earth). The Ghosts are a group of kids that are just trying to survive the broken world however they can. The series is a trilogy, with other books that come later in the timeline. Overall I enjoy these books and will read them again soon, once I am caught up on my other series. I give it a 8 out of 10 as it can be easy to predict what will happen if you have read other books like it. I would still recommend this book for anyone looking for an original, so I think, book series.
