Publisher's Summary

Ten years ago, the 20th century and the Bronze Age were tossed together by a mysterious Event. In the decade since, the Republic of Nantucket has worked hard to create a new future for itself, using the technological know-how retained from modern times to explore and improve conditions for the inhabitants of the past.

Some of these peoples have become allies. Some have turned instead to the renegade Coast Guard officer William Walker. And, for 10 years, the two sides have tested each other, feinting and parrying, to decide who will be the ones to lead this brave new world into the future. The final battle lines have now been drawn. And only one side can emerge the victor.

Stirling does it again!

A great ending to a magnificent series. The death of Walker was fitting to be sure. Left me wanting more though.

Terrible there is not a fourth book

Terrible I say, terrible that there is not a fourth book to this series. I have read these books 6 times and most likely will read them many more times. The story is very well written and narrated each book is hard to put down when started. Thank you for your imagination and writing.

absolutely captivating

There's very few writers that can come close to S.M. Stirling unique combination of Character development, worldbuilding, and a very strange premise.
I remember where i was whem i started this series, and I'm very proud of having listened to it.

A terrific conclusion to a story for the ages.

Stirling concludes his Nantucket series in epic fashion, tying up all the loose ends and weaving just enough threads for a second set of tales that we are all hoping to read!

one of the best time travel stories

This is one of the best time travel stories I have ever read. The characters are interesting and the time period is one not usually visited in similar stories. There is good action, suspense, and twists. The narrator is great at differentiating characters. Story is great.

Great story, Confusing chapter intro

great story concept. I didn't like the way that each chapter begin with the dates and locations in which it took place. The main problem was that the same chapter would include three or four locations and a similar date , but didn't have clear differentiation between when you were switching from one place to another within the chapter.

Ok story but...

The framework of it really could use an overhaul for audio books. The chapter breakdowns up to five different places and times at the start of the chapter, makes them absolutely useless unless you jump back to the beginning of the chapter. Also with the shear amount of characters on top of that coupled with the readers insufficient range to distinguish made it hard to follow when you switched places. Something to be also said that after reading several SM Strrlings books he really does repeat saying and mannerisms across all of his characters.
