The "magic" that once was America died horribly along with most of the Earth's inhabitants when an asteroid crashed into the planet sometime during the twenty-first century. Hundreds of years have passed, and all that remains of the time before are fragmented memories distorted by superstition -- as a tragically reduced populace suffers greatly under the tyranny of

I have read and own almost everything Sheri Tepper has written and this is one of my favorites. She takes the old theme of an apoclolyptic future and makes it new again. This book also reminds me of some of her older work such as Grass and Northshore/Southshore in that she is not quite so 'preachy'. I always enjoy her work but some books can be a bit too 'man--society--technology' bashing. This one is not. She is also the queen of foreshadowing--no one does it better. Nothing is worse than an author that hints but never explains coherently or logically. Sheri keeps us guessing but lets the pieces fall into place. I am never frustrated because I don't have them all yet--I can just enjoy the story. The book IS dark but hopeful too. An excellent read.

Was hooked from beginning to end. This is the first book that I have read written by this author. Looking forward to more.

Okay, currently I am incapable of normal thought, and am thusly using grandiloquent phrasings coupled with random shouting sessions and Japanese language quirks because it is Christmastime and I'm having a huge Mr. Goodbar. PINEAPPLE! Sorry. orz Anyways, I couldn't have picked a better book to spend the first of my gift card on if one claiming to be better slapped me in the face. And I am not sure if I've read 100 pages of the 400-odd pages there are. It gets confusing a tad at first, but then things start clicking. ^u^ BAI AI EHM AHFF TU RIID TEH BUUK TAHT IZ EPIK! ^•^"
