    Rudi Mackenize, now Artos the First, High King of Montival, and his allies have won several key battles against the Church Universal and Triumphant. But still the war rages on, taking countless lives, ravaging the land once known as the United States of America. Artos and his Queen, Mathilda, must unite the realms into a single kingdom to ensure a lasting peace. If the leaders of the Changed world are to accept Artos as their ruler, he will need to undertake a quest to the Lake at the Heart of the Mountains....

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. I would recommend the entire series up to this book. I would recommend the companion series. I would recommend the vampire series the author wrote.

    This was little more than an hour or so introducing the characters and reminding us who they were and what their background was. That was followed by a battle whose outcome was never in doubt. Then a little Star Wars-esque scene where the ghosts of characters past approve of Rudy. It ends with everyone sitting around the home fires eating and drinking. Yawn.


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

    He could have not written it. A listener who has gone through the entire series and the companion books has nearly 200 hours invested in these worlds and the characters. We want to hear how their lives are going and the challenges they overcome.

    This book was about 13 hours whereas the others were 20 or so. This book needed a good 7 hours of crisis.

    Let's have Rudy go head to head against the CUT. Sail the Pacific. Explore south. Overcome dissension within the kingdom. Do something.

    If nothing else, we have a good foundation for the next book that I am looking forward to.


    What about Todd McLaren’s performance did you like?

    I will download books just because Todd McLaren is the reader. He could make a recitation of a phone book fascinating.


    Could you see Lord of Mountains being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No.
