Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Long, long ago, in fact 2000 years ago, something terrible happened and the planet's climate changed. Ice extended down from the North and covered the sea in an unbroken, hard sheet. The time of The Garden had gone; the time when man's life was easy and God smiled on him. Now the three churches dominate all life on the ice. There is the Church of Cornath, the Church of the Ezrian Brotherhood and the Sol Church. All three churches believe fervently that there variation of faith is correct and that the opponents must be exterminated. Many wars have been fought in the past 2000 years. Then recently the plague came exterminating much of the population. Almost every family had lost members to it. This is the world into which Michael Ormson is born. His immediate family were all killed by the plague and he was taken by his uncle, Archbishop Rifton, into the monastery of Cornathan Church. There he was raised almost in secrecy, knowing nothing of the world outside, and not even being aware of the political intrigue and struggles that occurred even within the Cornathian Church. Then one day Rifton's enemy, Archbishop Zimri, learned of Michael's existence and a trap was sprung to snatch the young man from his Uncle's cloistered hiding place. The wide eyed Michael finds himself on an ice cruiser heading to lands distant from Cornath, facing dangerous battles on the ice, and experiencing a broadening of his mind that will take him on a path that will put him at odds with many around him.

This book is a strange blend of sc-fi, fantasy, church intrigue and swash-buckling sea yarn. It is certainly an original creation. Frank Herbert's The Dune Chronicles: "Dune," "Dune Messiah," "Children of Dune," "God Emperor of Dune," "Heretics of Dune," "Chapterhouse: Dune.

I have read the entire Lost Regiment series twice. I liked them very much. This book is not on a par with them. It is pretty boring and you can see a lot of the future actions coming. I was rather disappointed all in all.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The author created a very probable future culture by extrapolating historic human behaviour. The characters are also very well modelled. In the novel are a few things wich don't seem logic to me, but my overall rating is a "well done"
