A lot of prologue and then a hurried ending. Should have been two books, allowing more on the Walker/Hong theme. Most disappointing was the verbatim inclusion of dialogue from Stanley Baker's movie 'ZULU' in the O'Rourke's Ford sequences. I was always taught to give credit when including another's work. Mr. Stirling gives some credit correctly, some credit incorrectly (The Way of Kings quote was from the Robert E. Howard story 'The Phoenix on the Sword' not 'Kull the Conqueror') and apparently gives no credit to Stanley Baker. Will there be a fourth volume in the series now that the majority of the villains are resolved? Hard to get enthusiastic after this volume's disappointments.

Third in this series, On the Oceans of Eternity delivers a conclusion (or is it) to the Problem of Walker and his ilk. New technologies, a few surprizes (what is the precious cargo being ferried across the Atlantic for war), oh... and war. Smallpox sucks, by the way.

Having read some of the other reviews, before reading the book, I was able to catch the rehash of Zulu. I don't think he even changed the malingerer's name. A lot of story to have Walker, go the way he did. Maybe Steve needs to take a bigger break between books to recharge his batteries. He did kind of run out of steam.

I loved the first two books in this series. Awaited this one with much anticipation. Only to find, 600 pages into the book, that Mr. Sterling could not come up with an ending. The ending was contrived and it appears that he just felt that enough was enough. Enjoyed most of the book, tho.

Stirling's first two novels in this series were excellent. This title, however disappoints. The plot device that worked so well in the first two novels - how a small society can be cut off from 20th century technology but rebound to the 19th century level quickly - is now played out. This is a straight adventure story, with a contrived ending. Don't bother, unless you must read through a trilogy once you have started.

A fantastic series is brought to a [sudden] close. Loved the first book--Island in the Sea of Time. If anything, Against the Tide of Years was even better. However, it appears that due to some unspecified reason to wind this tale up as a trilogy [contractural?], the end game of the tale was compressed and too much was left off stage.

On the Oceans of Eternity is an excellent end to the saga of the Island of Nantucket and the US Coast Guard Cutter Eagle sent back in time to 1250 BC by an unexplained means. Heroes prevail, villains are vanquished (almost) and just enough room is left in the narrative to grow new branches if the author so desires.

In this third book about the Eagle People from Nantucket Stirling winds up the story, or does he? The only flaw, and it's a small one, is his use of Private Hook from Zulu. The description of a number of early civilizations and cultures is fascinating and showed a lot of research by someone. I hope he continues the book, even if Walker and his demon bride have been killed. Stirling needs to do at least one more book in this series. I certainly will want to read it. He is an equal to Turtledove in many ways.

I thought this book should have been split into two books and made more consistent and fleshed out. Missing a lot of time and details in the rush to complete the story. Wonderful story though. Couldn't put it down and am looking forward to Althea Walker's revenge.
