During a perfect spring evening on Nantucket, a violent storm erupts and a dome of crawling, colored fire blankets the island. When the howling winds subside and the night skies clear, the stars appear to have shifted. The mainland has become a wilderness of unbroken forest, where tools of bronze and stone litter the beaches, and primitive natives scatter in terror.

A startling phenomenon has occurred: The island of Nantucket has been swept into the long-ago past. With its inhabitants adrift in the year 1250 BC, there is only one question to be answered: Can they survive? Download and start listening now!

    " I enjoyed the idea of the book and some of the scholarly details put into the book, but I did not think the writing was different/unique. I may read other books in the series just to see what happens when they all do get to Egypt and how the Nantucket settlement develops. "

    " I've definitely read this trilogy before, at least once, maybe twice. It wasn't quite as good as I remembered, but still worthy of reading. "

    " My favorite alternate history series. There's been a lot of these published in the past decade and this trilogy is by far the best (imho). The only thing that might bug some folks is the whole "Nantucket is spontaneously teleported back to ancient times without any explanation whatsoever" premise. If you can get over that and just go with the story you're in for a great time. "

    " This book was freaking awesome. Not 100% realistic to military standards but what sci-fi book is? If you love the idea of time travel, or alternate realities this is the book for you. I am dying to get my hands on the next book in the series! "
