Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. This vivid sequel to 2007's The Sunrise Lands opens in 2021, a generation after the Change that brought magic back into the world and made electric and explosive power inoperative. New post-industrial societies have risen, some seeking to restore technology and some celebrating its demise. One of the latter is the Church Universal and Triumphant, a group of genocidal Luddites with a prophetic theology that is more Dark Ages than New Age. Clan leader Rudi MacKenzie frequently butts heads with the Cutters and their Prophet as he struggles to cross the devastated Eastern Death Zones and reach Nantucket Island, birthplace of the Change, where he hopes to understand and perhaps reverse the replacement of technology with myth and magic. Stirling (The Sunrise Lands) eloquently describes a devastated, mystical world that will appeal to fans of traditional fantasy as well as post-apocalyptic SF. (Sept.)

"Stirling is a perfect master of keep-them-up-all-night pacing, possibly the best in American sf." ---Booklist Starred Review

I have really enjoyed the "Dies The Fire" 3 books serie. This second book of the "Change" serie is - again - S.M. Stirling at his best. Hummm... does he ever write a bad book?

1.0 out of 5 stars Tired series Oct. 19 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Add me to the list of people who think Stirling spent far too much time describing what people are wearing and eating and such. Cut all that out of the book, along with the psuedo Gaelic/wiccan day dreaming that has overwhelmed what started out as a great alternate history storyline and this book is about 30 pages long. Even with that aside Stirling is becoming complacent and predictable. Our hero's party is being chased across the land from one end of the country to the other by a relentless foe. So when he once again escapes by the narrowest of margins this time into the land of the injuns who of course adopt him and make him their brother he: A. Hightails it accross the plains to get a good lead while his new indian brothers keep the invaders of their land off his back, B. Uses his overwhelming wit and charm to convince his new brethren to fight with him in their thousands to crush the evil that has come into their lands, who by the way number less than a hundred, C. Have a nice bath, a good feast, a nice sweat in the spa, go on a buffalo hunt, and then act so surprised when once again the evil relentless villian shows up and catches our hero completely unprepared so he has to flee with just what he's carrying, again. I've been a fan of alternate history, and a HUGE fan of Stirling for a long time but if this is the kind of tripe he is producing these days I can't see that continuing.

2.0 out of 5 stars He's channeling Rbt Jordan Dec 31 2008

Jordan's WoT series died for me at about Book 6, and Stirling is dangerously close to that precipice. However, old trick: only read the first sentence of each paragraph on even pages, and the middle sentence of odd pages, and you won't miss a thing. And, how do you pronounce "shete"?
