The Elves of Cintra, the second installment in Terry Brooks’ Genesis of Shannara series revisits a postapocalyptic Pacific Northwest in which humans, elves, mutants, and other ”Faerie” creatures battle demonic forces in a quest to recover the magic Elfstones and save human-kind.

For Fans of… Brooks’ 16 other Shannara books.

Bottom Line The Karamazov-size cast and myriad cliff-hangers provide plenty of thrills, though the good-versus-evil trope could use a little Elfjuice. B
