Review

Rating: 6

The third book of four in the second series in S.M. Stirling’s world of the Change, this cross-country epic moves along quite well, though the foreshadowing is laid on a bit thick in a couple of places. There are a couple of hiccups as the powers beyond the world become manifest based on Clarke’s dictum that sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic as one of the villains begins to spew incomprehensible quantum mechanics fragments. It’s strange to be reading this book that includes The Church Universal and Triumphant as one of the main groups (and the group from which the main villain of this series comes from) when Elizabeth Clare Prophet just died (on November 5, 2009).
