“S. M. Stirling provides another fabulous postapocalyptic thriller to his Change saga.” – Alternative Worlds

Rudi Mackenzie traveled to Nantucket, where he found and took up the Sword of the Lady and, with it, his destiny. His return journey to the area known as Montival, in the Pacific Northwest, is a treacherous one since he and his companions must cross three thousand miles, making both allies and adversaries along the way.
           
When he reaches his destination, he will face the legions of the Prophet. To achieve victory, Rudi must assemble a coalition of those who were his enemies just months before, then forge them into an army that will rescue his homeland and tear the heart out of the Church Universal and Triumphant once and for all.
           
Only then will Rudi be able to come to terms with how the Sword has changed him—as well as the world—and assume his place as Artos, High King of Montival…

Loved the first three books. Downhill since then but this was a pleasant surprise, the growth of Rudi and his relationship with Matti culminating in the marriage. But glanced at the next and back to a glorified travelogue. Too bad. I will not waste the time and the books are now serving as revenue producers, not to tell a story. Tolkien would spin in his grave.

One of the weakest books in the Emberverse series. Technically, this is 4th book in a 2nd series of books about "the change" where all electrical and gunpowder fails on earth which causes basically an apocalyptic event killing billions (the book series is less depressing then that!). But really it is the 7th book in basically a long series about the same characters and same main plot. I found the pace of this book much slower and maybe that's because this book more takes place after the main adventure/travel from the last few books but before the mass war betweeen Montival and CUT. Still, overall I love the series of books. It is a fun alternative-history type of series and if you like medieval fiction or like Harry Turtledove, you'll like this series. But start at the real first book called "Dies the Fire".
