It picks up where "Prince of Outcasts" leaves off. John Arminger Mackenzie is a prisoner, in another dimension and time, of the Pallid Mask and the King in Yellow. This is based heavily on the works of Robert W. Chambers (Google it, it's worth it for scariness. H.P. Lovecraft based some of HIS work on it). John's lover Pip and her companions go into the evil dimension to rescue John. Meanwhile, Orlaith ("The Golden Princess") and Empress Reiko of Japan go to the Kingdom of Hawa'ii to enlist their help in the new war against the evil sorcerers from Korea. Mayhem and violence ensue in both storylines.
If you like fantasy and science fiction mixed, you will love this whole series. If you don't like them mixed I believe you will still like the series, because S. M. Stirling does such a good job of making it believable. And unlike the popular "Game of Thrones," Stirling is actually making continuous progress and writing a new book every year! So there is a very rich world to explore.
And since Mr. Stirling and his undicted co-conspirator Kier Salmon dared me to, here is a full spoiler:
"Time for my annual SPOILERS for "The Sea Peoples." WARNING: there might be some actual spoilers here, but probably not.
John ***** and ***** and ******. Pip and friends go *******, but nobody eats anything. Meanwhile, Orlaith, Reiko and their frends do get to eat a good meal. Including lots of seafood. Alan Thurston *******. Robert W. Chambers spins in his grave. H.P. Lovecraft says "Damnnnnn, that's scary!" At the end someone maybe shouts "KAAAAAHHHHHHNNNN!!!!!" But then, maybe they don't. Really."
