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.

Hard to press pause
This is the best series Terry Brooks has written
Yes, I love the story, it has exciting parts. I wish audible could come out with the rest of the series though. I think it will take a few times to really hear it.
When John Ross has to decide to fight the demon or the monster. We all make decisions that affect the rest of our lives. Sometimes we have to choose between what is good for us and what is good for all.
No, He does pretty good, I have heard better but I know he is better then some.
It was hard to stop. You need to take advantage of the slow times to stop the book.
I love this series and also the one that follows it (The Genesis of Shannara. The books make me think of what might happen and sound like it is possible if we don't think about the future.
