    It's Change Year 25, a generation after high-energy technology died in a catastrophe most of the human race didn't survive. The children born after the Change are now starting to take center stage - and Whoever or Whatever was behind the Change itself may be taking a hand in their rivalries. An expedition has travelled to Nantucked across a strange and hostile continent to find some answers.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The author should be finishing this series. We all know pretty much how it will end anyway. Instead, new characters are introduced that I for one don't give a damn about. Also, as the 'explanation' of the new post-event world physics are re-hashed and expounded on, they seem less believable and just plain silly. I hate this book and have stopped listening 2 hrs into it.


    What could S. M. Stirling have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I don't need deep, meaningful plot narratives. I do, however require that time I spend listening to/reading be rewarded by a progressing story. This series has utterly forsaken this.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Mr. McLaren is a good narrator whom I generally enjoy listening to. However no one could spark this useless drivel into anything worth calling a good story.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Abject disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    Mr. Stirling needs to finish this series now. Preferably by not writing another word and moving on to something else. He is a very imaginitive writer and is capable of far better.
