Rudi MacKenzie continues his trek across the land that was once the United States of America. His destination: Nantucket, where he hopes to learn the truth behind the Change that rendered technology across the globe inoperable.

During his travels, Rudi forges ties with new allies in the continuing war against the Prophet, who teaches his followers that God has punished humanity by destroying technological civilization. And one fanatical officer in the Sword of the Prophet has been dispatched on a mission: to stop Rudi from reaching his destination by any means necessary.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Vivid…[Stirling] eloquently describes a devastated, mystical world that will appeal to fans of traditional fantasy as well as post-apocalyptic SF.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Stirling is a perfect master of keep-them-up-all-night pacing, possibly the best in American sf, quite capable of sweeping readers all the way to the end, with a galley going under a bridge in Dubuque in the Provisional Republic of Iowa, and leaving them crying for more.”

    " I don't know why, but I felt lost at times in this book. Several times some situations didn't come across very clear and the book seemed to be wandering. I know it's part of this epic journey Stirling is trying to take us on, but it felt very meandering. "

    " Still a good read the second time around. Nice cliffhanging at the end, though you can till this is part of a long story arc. the whole premise of the Change and what happens when technology fails is quite interesting. Looking forward to the end of the series. "
