This is a novel in the continuing series begun by Stirling in "Dies The Fire". That book is about the world as it is hit with a cosmic catastrophe that throws the world back into a pre-industrial age where there is no electricity, no gunpowder, no combustion of any kind. The great metropolitan centers become death lands. The world must rebuild itself from scratch. The Sunrise Lands is the continuing story, 20 years later, about the children of those people who survived The Change. This books starts off on a run, with excitement and intrigue building in the very first pages. The book quickly gets us into a new story line with the children of the leaders of the new world after the change. If you liked the original series, this new series will satisfy your appetite for more. ( )

Micah loaned me his copy of the book. Its a well loved paperback. I finished it last night, so less than a week to read. He assured me that I didn't need to read the Nantucket series. I do have the first one from the library and may give it a whirl.

We only make it to Boise in this book. We end with Matti and Odard given up to the Prophet's men by Odard's man Alex. ( )

11/11 I'm a little less consumed this time through- primarily because I know how many more books I have to get through before Rudi gets where he's going. But love this series? Yes, I most emphatically do.

12/10 I'm consumed by this post-apocalyptic, dystopian series. I'm enjoying it mightily, though I admit to skimming some of the "his sword sunk through the enemy's flesh like a slaughtering angel, the bright gouts of blood" blah blah blah.

There's some delicate and delightful cribbing of tone from LotR, in addition to the more overt and equally fun homage. The switch of perspective from the older generation to the younger, post-Change set is welcome.

First words
Ingolf Vogeler slapped his horse affectionately on the neck; he felt a little better now that the rain had stopped, even though it was the tag end of a chilly October day with a ragged sky the color of damp raw wool rolling in from the west.
