Not Stirling's best work.
Firstly, I am a HUGE fan of S.M. Stirling's Novels of The Change. From "Dies the Fire" on down to "The Sword of The Lady", I have thoroughly enjoyed all six books, and have re-read all of them at least three times.
This new series, however, leaves a lot to be desired. I bought the book based solely upon seeing Stirling's name on the cover. It's about vampires; overdone, of late, but I can still get in to a good vampire story. This is not a good vampire story. The characters are very thin, the reader is never really given a reason to care about any of them, and the plot sort of trudges along. It really feels as though Stirling is just going through the motions, as though his publisher said, "Crank out another book, it doesn't have to be good."
There is simply nothing special about this book, and that is sad to say.
