The saga of the United & Confederate States continues!
on September 13, 2003
Another page turner by Harry Turtledove continuing the saga that started with How Few Remain, up through the Great War series and now the conclusion of the American Empire series.
All our favorites are back, but time marches on so some of these characters don't (hey, we're now going through the twenties, thirties and forties - life goes on, but not all people, or characters, go on). There are some great twists that readers familiar with characters won't see coming. The character development and story are tight, excellent, finely crafted. Prof. Turtledove does a great job planning these stories and character arcs out. I won't tell you the story - you have to read it yourself.
If you're going to read the book, don't read this review any further. Stop, right now. Ok, but a faithful reader will know where this book ends up. World War 2 is starting and, Harry, keep the books coming. I'm eagerly anticipating the next one especially what happens with the patriots in occupied Canada. I think the US may have a little trouble coming.
