Publisher's Summary

The Narthani, a militant realm who believe their manifest destiny is to rule the entire planet, Anyar, plan to absorb Caedellium into their empire and crush any resistance. Yozef Kolsko (a.k.a. Joe Colsco) works to find ways to increase the chances of resistance to the Narthani's planned conquest.
Complicating his life is attraction to a brilliant daughter of an island leader, and his uncertainty of his own mind, hers, or intricacies of Caedellium customs.
Despite his desire to devote himself to introducing new knowledge, Yozef is drawn more and more into developing weapons and giving tactical and strategic advice - things he knows he's unqualified to give. The enemy is coming. The odds seem overwhelming, and it will take all Yozef can do, the courage of his new people, and luck, to survive.

A damn good read, I would highly recommend.

One can identify with Yozef Kolsko, the main character, and his dilemma of having advanced knowledge but being unable to apply it in a society thats 300years behind that which he was removed from.

Read the first and second books back to back, couldn't put them down. I cant wait for the third book, will the Natharni be finally pushed back off the island? What about windmills/water wheels as energy source. Will we see steam power and the beginnings of an industrial revolution emerge.

Bring on the third instalment.
