"Praised as a "truly original combination of postapocalyptic sci-fi and military-oriented medieval fantasy,"* S. M. Stirling's Novels of the Change depict a future without technology, where people must master skills from ages past in order to survive. Now, to ensure that survival for all he cares for, a king faces his greatest challenge in the latest chapter of the "New York Times" bestselling saga...."
Rudi Mackenzie has won the battle that expelled the enemy from the new High Kingdom of Montival. Now he must free the people who live in the state once known as Idaho from occupation by the legions of the Church Universal and Triumphant and pursue them to their lair over the mountains. There he will finally confront the forces behind the Church--the Powers of the Void.
Yet even a victory will not end the conflict forever. The Powers of the Void are malevolent and infinitely patient, and the struggle is one that involves the entire world. They threaten Rudi not only in the present, but also in the future represented by his children, Orlaith and John. Rudi knows this.
And as his heir Princess Orlaith grows up in the shadow of her famous father, she also realizes that the enemy will do anything to see that she does not live to fulfill her parents' dream....

Reviews

Praise for S. M. Stirling and His Novels of the Change Stirling has blazed a clear comet trail across his postapocalyptic landscape that illuminates both the best and the worst of which our species is capable. "Science Fiction Weekly" Nobody wrecks a world better than S. M. Stirling, and nobody does a better job of showing that people remain people, with all their high points and low, in the wreckage. Harry Turtledove, "New York Times "Bestselling Author of "Supervolcano: All Fall Down" [A] richly realized story of swordplay and intrigue. "Entertainment Weekly" Absorbing. "San Diego Union-Tribune" [A] vivid portrait of a world gone insane...full of bloody action, exposition that expands character, and telling detail that makes it all seem very real. "Statesman Journal" (Salem, OR) As usual, S. M. Stirling delivers a rich world readers want to live in. Fully formed and alive characters you wish you could drink a beer with or follow into battle. "PNC-Minnesota Bureau" Stirling s historical research is always impeccable, and his ability to use that knowledge and understanding of everything from ancient weapons to regional accents to a foodie s obsession with good eats creates a world you can see, feel, and touch.
