Literature: The Genesis of Shannara
A trilogy in Terry Brooks's long-running Shannara series, these stories link The Word and the Void books to the main series.

Sometime in the near future, the once-human demons are winning their war against humanity. Civilization is collapsing with scattered havens of order surrounded by wastelands full of dangerous mutants, paranoid survivors, and lawless scoundrels, but there are a handful of heroes standing against the tide. The Knights of the Word fight the Void and its demon servants, but only two remain: Logan Tom and Angel Perez. While Logan searches for Nest Freemark's son Hawk to help him fulfill his destined savior role, Angel's quest is to find the last remaining Elves and ensure their survival into the new world.

The three books are:

Armageddon's Children

The Elves of Cintra

The Gypsy Morph
