Ten years after modern technology and most of the human race go extinct, what was Oregon is divided among three societies.
Ex-pilot Mike Havel rules around Salem. Juniper Mackenzie holds sway as bard and high priestess of her clan in the southern Willamette Valley. Self-styled protector Norman Arminger is building a medieval empire based on street-gang members in Portland. Readers entranced by Dies the Fire (2004) and The Protector’s War (2005), the first two books in Stirling’s trilogy will be happy to be here, in the midst of a major work by an authentic master of alternate history.
