this series continues to get better with each book, which is not the norm for lengthy series'. this book concluded the second trilogy and i am eagerly awaiting the next three. ( )

Rudi and friends at the end arrive in Nantucket. They do lose one of their members. This series is just pulling me along. I had known I would finish over the weekend so had the next book in the series ready to go once I closed the cover on this one. ( )

12/2011 I was able to read this the second time through with more leisure. The first time was a heedless rush to find out what happened next. This time was more fun, though I did notice Stirling's tendency to mistrust that his reader gets it more. Stop hitting us over the head already. But a lovely conclusion to the second trilogy, and a nice stepping-off point for the third. The which I hope will finish the series for good and for all.

12/2010 Entirely satisfying conclusion to the second Emberverse trilogy. There's a bit more adventure, a bit less navel-gazing than the previous book. The not-quite zombie Cutter villains were a little over-the-top, but I'm so invested in the series by now I'm willing to let Stirling toss in some weirdness.

The biggest problem for me with these books (and this one especially) is that Stirling doesn't trust his readers to ferret out the subtleties so he hits us over the heard with 'em again and again.

Still and all, a rollicking good read. ( )

Dedication
First words
Rudi Mackenzie and Edain hadn't been singing the hymn; more of a breathy whisper, though it rang loud in their minds as the moon rose enormous on the horizon, and they'd come down here below the lip of the valley where there was more cover for the rite.
BD breathed out, and in, and out, and in, her chest vibrating with the deep-toned sounds of the power raising, breath steamed in the chilly air. (Epilogue)
