It has been forty years since Terry Brooks changed the fantasy publishing landscape with the publication of The Sword of Shannara. Now he turns his hand to science fiction with his long-awaited Street Freaks.
Street Freaks is the future of the United States that no longer exists in its present form. At its epicenter is Ash Collins, a boy whose comfortable life is turned upside down in minutes, forcing him to flee for his life. In saving himself, he discovers the world of the Red Zone, a forbidden part of the city to which his father has sent him. There he encounters very different kinds of people, most of whom are considered discards and street trash. For in this future, genetics and robotics have changed everything, and even the question of who is human and who is not is open to interpretation.
A world of throw-back street racing, of the ‘tweeners and ‘bots which comprise much of the population, of corporations and government entities intent on crushing dissent, and of a girl unlike anyone Ash has ever met, find him struggling to stay one step of ahead of those who would hunt him down and terminate him. But there is more at stake than his life. The whole world is threatened by those who search for him. And for reasons he can only guess at, he seems to be the only one who can save it.
Go into the Red Zone. Discover Street Freaks.
