I was even on-board with the gradual introduction of fantasy elements into what started as a straight science-fiction book. But the ending of the book was wholly implausible, and seemed like a desperate attempt to mash together a supernatural and super-scientific solution to both the Change series and the Island series. Stirling would have been a lot better off if he'd never attempted such an explanation, because it's so full of holes that it renders the series meaningless. Now I'm in no hurry to finish the series at this point, I'll wait until the paperbacks are down to the $1 level.
I wonder if Stirling is feeling his own mortality and projecting into his writing? Many sci-fi and fantasy authors succumb to this trait, creating their own religious or technological "afterlifes" and dwelling endlessly upon them. Sometimes they still manage to create entertaining or challenging stories within that context, but often it just ends in the equivalent of sappy wishful thinking that is far from engaging or enlightening.
Sorry, it could have been so much better ...
The girl power doesn't bother me in principle- I married a woman with a career- but in this time and place it seems absurd. We know that female equality cannot exist without the birth control pill. That is what spawned the sexual revolution, women's liberation, etc. If sex meant babies the female characters would put a little more thought into who they slept with than they do in these books. Also, the notion that women could be soldiers equal to men (pre-gun powder) is insane.Read more ›

This series has just sort of wormed its way into my heart. I don't know if I would enjoy the book as a stand alone as much as part of the series.Published 2 months ago by Lisa

There's too many books in this series to really compare, if you liked the other 8 of them, probably you'll like this one. It brings some closure to the 2nd generation.Published 2 months ago by Soulshadow

The story line was good right up to the end. Good action kept it moving and interesting. The ending was very confusing; even went back and read it twice.Published 8 months ago by Ironpawn

The last third of this book was a slog. And can anyone explain the ending to me? Did we win? Are the good guys all saved? Who died there at the end and who lived? Why did SMS waste my time with all that mysticism?
I do not think that the reader is well served here.

The correct link for SMStirling's pre-posted chapters is
smstirling.com where you will find the early chapters of most of his books.
I'm not sure why jiltanith has her own link there.
