In the tenth year of The Change, the survivors in western Oregon have learned how to live in a world without technology-but there are those who would exploit the new world order. On one side stands Michael Havel's Bearkillers and their allies, Clan MacKenzie under the leadership of Juniper MacKenzie. On the other is the Lord Protector, Norman Arminger-the Warlord of Portland, whose neo-feudal empire rules over much of the Pacific Northwest. The tensions between factions have been building for some time, and the only reason they haven't met on the battlefield is because Arminger's daughter has fallen into Clan MacKenzie's hands. But a plan to retrieve her threatens to plunge the entire region into open warfare.

5.0 A Meeting at Corvallis (Dies the Fire, Book 3)
"A Meeting at Corvallis" is the last book in the "Dies the Fire" trilogy. Part of S.M. Stirling's excellent Change Novels series, these books discuss a civilization reawakening after some astral phenomenon renders modern technology useless. Those who survive are the people who had arcane skills su...

I was a little worried that this book was going to wander off and not tie up the loose ends of the previous two, but Stirling does a nice job of ending the series. The pacing is a little choppy; I find myself wondering why we're spending so much time describing birds and horses and stuff when I know...

2.0 A Meeting at Corvallis
I like the idea of this novel/series better then the execution. And to be honest this is really more of a, "read the first half then the last ten pages and figured out the in between stuf" then an actual complete read. But I'm counting it. a. The character of Juniper Mackenzie is directly ba...
