However I felt the author spent too much time in picky details about peoples dress and setting description.
I bought this copy for my son who wants to read it and I only have it on my Kindle. I think he will enjoy it.
If you are into science fantasy, end of the world or alternative timeline novels I highly reccommend this series.
Stirling obviously knows a lot about Oregon, but there is some sloppy editing, such as several times calling the town of Amity, where I live, "Amityville," which is in New York. The map is also inaccurate, placing Larsdalen about 30 miles west of the Eola Hills, where he says it is located. Table Rock and Mithrilwood (Silver Falls State Park) are also not really sited very accurately on the map.
In the second book, "The Protector's War," he also adopts a non-linear timeline which can be very confusing, especially when characters refer to other characters as being deceased before you see how they were killed!
If you are bothered by things like this, you probably won't like the book, but if you can just enjoy an adventure yarn, then have at it. This book has plenty of battles. Stirling isn't as good at battle descriptions as Bernard Cornwell, but he isn't bad either.
