Ten years ago, the twentieth century and the Bronze Age were tossed together by a mysterious event. In the decade since, the Republic of Nantucket has worked hard to create a new future for itself, using the technological know-how retained from modern times to explore and improve conditions for the inhabitants of the past. Some of these peoples have become allies. Some have turned instead to the renegade Coast Guard officer William Walker. And for ten years, the two sides have tested each other, feinting and parrying, to decide who will be the ones to lead this brave new world into the future. The final battle lines have now been drawn. And only one side can emerge victorious.

Quotes & Awards

    " This was the 3rd book in the trilogy and forever burned the letters S.M. Stirling into my brain with the spell, "Buy all my books!" "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Linda | 2/14/2014

    " This was the third of a trilogy. I liked the premise of the story. The Island of Nantucket and the surrounding waters and is an island of the present in the far distant past. Those on the island learn to survive and prosper. The final book is all about the Eagle People's (citizens of the Republic of Nantucket) war with a renegrade, who has established his "kingdom" in ancient Greece, and his "allies." I liked the characters and the story, but not the amount of time spent on battle details. Lots of history of ancient peoples in this trilogy that had me remembering my high school ancient history class, as well as Genesis! "

    " Characters less consistent, plot less intriguing, took a long time to finish. "

    " Wow! Just love this series. Great characters, politics, love stories, great battles scenes and intrigue! Awesome. Only problem is he stopped with 3 short books for this series while the Emberverse series keeps going on and on! Hope he'll write some more in this series some day! "
