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.

Original given the first three books in the series to read by my son, awhile ago. Purchased the series, to have in my own library. What would you do if there was no power, gunpowder doesn't work and machinery will not work. You are forced back to the time of swords and bow and arrows. It's a time of fight or die to survive. Its an interesting journey and will keep you riveted to the books to see how it unfolds. Excellent books. Well written. ( )

The latest installment in Stirling's post-apocalyptic series. Rudi and his friends continue to travel across the remains of the USA on their quest. Stirling does a good job with characters and challenging plots, though after a while the constant travel and conflict with the CUTTERs gets a little old. Still, I found this fun to read and I enjoy all of the books in the series. ( )

The Novels of the Change are two distinct series but showing as the Nantucket series. This is the seventh book in the series but the fourth book in the Change series taking place on the contential United States. The other three books are about Nantucket after the change. This book brings to us Change Year 22. ( )

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.
