good action in this one; a little predictable but still fun ( )

Very interesting read. No science fiction here, except for the initial premise that a sudden change eliminates all electricity and spark driven machinery. Stirling is a good author, but in this book, set in Oregon, he goes a little overboard in describing the wonders of Oregon's countryside. He also over-describes middle ages type of battles, protective clothing, and weapons. All that gets a little tedious. Nevertheless, this continuation of "Dies the Fire" is a good read. ( )

Third entry to the Emberverse, finishing up the series about the first 10 or so years after The Change. No one knows quite what happened, but on one fine evening, suddenly machines all stopped working at once. There followed massive upheaval and a few hearty folks who struggled to survive. These three books covered several small enclaves in the Pacific Northwest, and how they managed to put together a follow on civilization.

Lots of interesting learning to make-do, reinvention of primitive techniques for survival and lots of interesting approaches to governance. ( )

The third book wraps up the storylines began in the first two, and it surprisingly has a GREAT ending. the writing is cleaner and less clunky in this third book so it flows nicely. ( )

I gobbled it all up. I like how the war was resolved and how things seem to have settled out with Signe, Sandra and Juniper. The next book jumps 12 years into the future again. I'm checking out the Nantucket series to have that come back to the next part of this one. ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
To Harry Turtledove: true gentleman, wise scholar, fine writer, good friend, and inspiration to us all. We need every kalos k'agathos we can get.
First words
Norman Arminger-he rarely thought of himself as anything but the Lord Protector these days-stared at the great map that showed his domains, and those of his stubbornly independent neighbors; it covered the whole of the former Oregon and Washington, with bits of the old states of Idaho and northern California thrown in.

In the tenth year of The Change, the survivors in western Oregon have learned how to live in a world without technology--but there are those who would exploit the new world order. On one side stands Michael Havel's Bearkillers and their allies, Clan MacKenzie under the leadership of Juniper MacKenzie. On the other is the Lord Protector, Norman Arminger, the Warlord of Portland, whose neo-feudal empire rules over much of the Pacific Northwest. The tensions between factions have been building for some time, and the only reason they haven't met on the battlefield is because Arminger's daughter has fallen into Clan MacKenzie's hands. But a plan to retrieve her threatens to plunge the entire region into open warfare.--From publisher description.… (more)
