""[An] epic series, "* the Novels of the Change by New York Times bestselling author S.M. Stirling chronicle a postapocalyptic landscape of medieval and mystical monarchies ruling and warring across a world where mysterious Powers removed advanced technology. A new alliance has been forged between the High Kingdom of Montival and the Empire of Great Japan, but at the cost of a lost prince ... John Arminger Mackenzie wanted to be a troubadour, but fate made him the son of the King of Montival. His sister Princess Ólaith will deservedly inherit the throne of the High Kings, and it will pass on to him only in the event of her death, leaving the young prince on an unknown path to discover his true role in the family. The opportunity to prove his mettle comes when John's ship, the Tarshish Queen, is caught in the fierce storm raised against the enemies of the alliance. When the clouds recede and the skies clear, John and his crew find themselves on the other side of the Pacific, in the island chains of the Ceram Sea, fighting to survive against vicious pirates and monstrous creatures of the deep while meeting new allies and mysterious enemies of this world and another. Now Prince John must seize his birthright and lead his people in battle against the darkest forces man and nature can conjure against them"--… (more)

Stirling has successfully brought the Change into a next generation and onto another continent. I've enjoyed how this book incorporates several leadership concepts, typically conveyed as best practices the descendants have learned from their royal parents. ( )

I found this difficult to read until the last 1/3-1/5, just not much interesting going on. ( )

I finished this a couple weeks ago, but forgot to add to my collection. Prince John and crew get pushed by a storm created by the japanese empress to above Australia. They're attacked by a huge alligator with a bracelet. The end up beaching on an island that is being fought over by two factions. Will be interesting to see where it goes from here. ( )

Another excellent chapter in this outstanding series John Mackenzie, an erstwhile troubadour, becomes entangled in his princely duties for the Kingdom of Montivale. Unlike his sister, he lacks a magic sword but slides nicely, if not willingly, into his expected role as a war leader. Demonic Koreans, yes even then, ship killing crocodiles and troll-like creatures led by a masked man provide many challenges still to be overcome. Looking forward to the next episode. ( )

Huge cliffhanger at the end. If you hate being left hanging, I'd suggest waiting until the next volume comes out. ( )
