Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author S. M. Stirling continues what Library Journal has termed his "epic of survival and rebirth," chronicling a modern world without technology. Rudi Mackenzie has journeyed far across the land that was once the United States of America, hoping to find the source of the world-altering event that has come to be known as the Change. His final destination is Nantucket, an island overrun with forest, inhabited by a mere two hundred people who claim to have been transported there from out of time.
Only one odd stone house remains standing. Within it, Rudi finds a beautifully made sword waiting for him - and once he takes it up, nothing will ever be the same....

What did you like best about this story?

The further development of the characters, story line is interesting enough to keep me coming back to find out what happens

Would you be willing to try another one of Todd McLaren’s performances?

NO... random changing of accents and poor pronunciation of words used many times drives me nuts.

Any additional comments?

I think the style is getting a little rambling, repeatedly reminding the listener what things are. I guess that’s similar to the style of a lot of American TV shows though. I do not need another description of the main characters outfits, I have heard it enough.
I suspect an abridged version maybe more enjoyable.
And if I had a friend that kept speaking in a language I didn’t understand to then have to repeat himself in English he may well get a punch, high king or not ;)
