Now it is time to cross the ocean and follow the adventure.
I love how Steve weaves his stories.
I liked the characters, including the over-the-top Captain Pip who began the tale as an adolescent out for adventure, and grew up quite a bit on this quest, as did Prince John. He will make a thoughtful, worth Lord Protector one day. The puzzled, tormented Alan Thurston was multidimensional enough to hold anybody's interest The glimpses of Hawai'ian, Australian, and Southeast Asian culture were as rich as all Stirling's Emberverse tours, and the touchy, proud, exasperating Japanese added spice to the dish.
Now to the villains: When Stirling wants to depict someone as epitome of evilest evil for the sake of evilness, he makes them cannibals.Irredeemable and incurably evil. Always. \The High Queen already has a plan (see the previous book) for wiping them off the face of Southern California It would be interesting to see some of them redeemed, though that may not be likely.
Finally, some of the nightmare scenes, "ripped from the headlines" of history, prove that there is very little an all-hating demon can to do humans that we haven't done to ourselves. A major city nuked. The Holocaust. The interminable, futile trench warfare of the First World War. Those truly hit home to any native of the 20th Century.
All right, sir! Let's see that sequel! And three cheers for Prince John and his odyssey!
