i found this book to have the same power and majesty of all s.m. stirlings books. you can not help liking the characters and the action is almost non stop. one of the things about stirling is his love of the narative and the scene setup. you get every leaf and twig here. but the thing that always blows me away is when there is food in the story. all i can say is eat before you read or expect to binge afterward. at the very least your mouth will water!
Another wonderful ride into an alternative universe by the master, S. M. Stirling. Reading one of Stirling's books is like crawling in to a warm bed on a rainy afternoon. I enjoy every aspect of them (well, he gets a little wordy at times, but oh what words). An excellent read.
