Twenty years ago, New York Times best-selling author Terry Brooks published the first fantasy novel ever to hit the mainstream best-seller lists. Once again he breaks new ground in Running with the Demon, convincing listeners that impossible villains and heroes actually coexist with us in our everyday world. On a very hot Fourth of July weekend, two strangers appear in Hopewell, Illinois, in the middle of a bitter steel strike. One, a Demon of the Void, will use the angry steel workers to attain his own terrible ends. The other, a Knight of the Word, dreams about a nightmarish future and spends every waking moment desperately trying to change its course. The fate of the town and, ultimately, of humanity, depends on one exceptional 14-year-old girl, the only one who can see the otherworldly creatures that have begun to invade her home town. George Wilson's narration powerfully conveys the apocalyptic magnitude of this novel of good versus evil. Mystery and suspense blend to keep the listener involved to the very last word.

    was ok. I enjoyed the ending. looking forward to book2 and 3. audio quality wasnt very good. sounds like it was recorded in 1970.

  • Galaxy W.

    Thus small series is a favorite of mine and George Wilson does such a great job narrating it.

  • Winter76

    I read this book when it came out back in 1997 and it still holds up today. This marks the beginning of linking our world to the Shannara series. Hi writing here is a mix of fantasy and horror and I like the development of the protagonists Nest Freemark and John Ross. The antagonist is also appropriately scary but the twist was a little too telegraphed for my taste. No enough characters to keep the mystery intact. Over all a great read and the entry point for folks wanting to re-read the series from in-world chronological order.

    it's was good

  • Roxann W.

    I did feel that this story had some slow spots. But after getting into it. I wanted to hear more.

  • Georgia S.

    Picked it based off the reviews from the VIP options and was not disappointed. Just downloaded the second and am happy its a series since the ending leaves you wanting more, but could also stand on its own.

  • Suzanne M.

    Fun different not what I expected but I thoroughly enjoyed it

  • Michael A.

    The hero of this story is a 14 year old girl when you realize that the target audience is 9 to 13 year old girls it makes it easier to accept the fact I spent money on this book being a 62 year old man

  • Angel Corley

    great book,but narrator was really mellow tone, could have been a lot better,if was read by someone else,a female narrator would have been better.


    Love the characters and the way the story rolls. Hard to put down!
