Overview

A new generation faces its own challenges in the world the Change has made.

Princess Órlaith, heir to Rudi Mackenzie, Artos the First, High King of Montival, now wields the Sword of the Lady—and faces a new enemy. Fortunately, she also has a new ally in Reiko, Empress of Japan, who has been pursued to America by a conquering army from Asia.

To combat their mutual foe, Órlaith and Reiko embark on a quest to find the fabled Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi, the Grass-Cutting Sword, one of the three great treasures of the Japanese Imperial House. But dreams have revealed that the road to Kusanagi lies through the meganecropolis of the City of Angels, the greatest and most perilous of the dead cities...and beyond it, to a castle in the fearful Valley of Death. And their relentless enemy will stop at nothing to prevent them from succeeding.

For across the Pacific, the great arc of land that stretches from the dark kingdom of Korea to the realm of Capricornia in Australia is threatened by war. Now all the survivors of the Change must choose sides....

    Endless meandering conversations, lots of descriptions of trees,

    Endless meandering conversations, lots of descriptions of trees, flowers and food. Two brief scenes with minimal action. 
    I fell in love with the change novels years ago and looked forward for each new one, even as they became progressively dialogue-bound,
    description replaced action, and Mr. Stirling seemed poised to out-wait Godot. 
    This book is blisteringly slow. No one does anything but talk and comment. NOTHING HAPPENS. 
    I fear the author is drifting, trading on what started strong, like an aging rock band who is touring fairgrounds and Holiday Inns. Yuck!

    S.M. Stirling, I am one of your biggest fans. I have read nearly everything you have written and I hope the next book is right around the corner. This was a teaser and a waste of time.

    Setup for another great series in this world, which I have come to love. We are introduced to the next generation, and several cultures we haven't met before.

    I can't wait to see where we go from here!

    S. M. Stirling has done it again. Just when it seems there is nothing else to add to his saga of the Changed world, he adds new cultures, new characters, new lands. In this latest book, a party of Japanese rescued from pirates (and worse) by the High King prepares to depart on a new Quest worthy of the last. The evil thought to have been defeated in a previous book is resurgent and it falls upon the next generation to face up to this new threat. The High Queen of the Kingdom of Montival gathers her friends and allies and sets forth to... Well, that would be telling. Buy. Read. And if this is your first experience in the Emberverse, don't hesitate to go back and start from the beginning after you're done with this volume. This is a world filled with heroes and villains and others who stand somewhere between. There's more to come. Start now!
