A generation has passed since the change that rendered technology inoperable around the world, and western Oregon has finally achieved a degree of peace. But a new threat has risen in Paradise Valley, Wyoming. A man known as the Prophet presides over the Church Universal and Triumphant, teaching his followers to continue God’s work by destroying the remnants of technological civilization they encounter—and those who dare use them.

Rudi Mackenzie, son and heir of the mystic Juniper, must journey with seven friends across a continent in chaos to the Sunrise Lands to solve the riddle of what destroyed a civilization. And as the friends journey farther into the interior, enemies may be within their own band as well as outside it.

Listener Opinions

    " Meh, I personally thought it was a tad corny. The series is weird too, as each story skips a generation or two. "

    " I am really enjoying these books. I hate finishing one without having the next on ready to go. But there is a lot going on in the books, multiple points of view, and not everyone enjoys the switch. I however, am loving it. "

    " Got a little tired of all the battle scenes and sometimes skimmed them. But it has a total cliffhanger ending... I must read the next one immediately! Just went and got it. "

    " One of the problems I had with this book was that I had just finished a spectacular book and this one was fair to middling. I was concerned that it had been sometime since I had read the last book in the series. That turned out not to be such an issue. You can get a summary of the plot elsewhere. One thing that did detract from the book was some of the terminology. A lexicon would have been nice as well as a list of characters and how the relate to each other. I will most likely give the next book a shot, but am not sure about the rest of the series. "
