The Shepherds' War is a departure from previous works into more of a sci-fi genre. Through Kordyban's simple, Hemingwayian style, we follow a species/race of peaceful, but mentally gifted people from Nazi times to the 1970s.
The main character is 10 years old, calling to mind some of the adventurous spirit of stories like the Goonies. But, everything is serious and believable with no campiness or implausibility.
One delicious passage caught my attention in particular:
"What Bron learned was to be suspicious of history. It was not so much a list of things that had happened in the past. It was a story of what people thought should be happening today, as if it had already begun in the past."
