Publisher's Summary

Rediscover the captivating post-apocalyptic world of the Change with the latest in the New York Times best-selling series.
The spirit of Prince John, the brother of Crown Princess Orlaith, has fallen captive to the power of the Yelolow Raja and his servant, the Pallid Mask. Prince John's motley band of friends and followers, led by Captain Pip of Townsville and Deor Godulfson, the bard and master of magic, must lead a quest through realms of shadow and dream to rescue Prince John from a threat far worse than death.
Meanwhile, Reiko and Orlaith muster their kingdoms for war, making common cause with the reborn Kingdom of Hawaii. But more than weapons or even the dark magic of the cannibal sorcerers of Pyongyang threaten them. Orlaith's lover, Alan Thurston, is more than he appears.
In the tropical waters off Hilo and Pearl Harbor, and among the jungles and lost cities of the Ceram Sea, a game will be played with the fate of the world at stake.

It is becoming Soooo painful - - -

I am just about ready to say good by and good riddance to the saga. I’ve read and listened to them all and loved them until the last three volumes . The plot line has been stretched beyond the breaking point. Questionable if I could bring myself to read/listen to another volume.

A disappointment

I found this to be rather disappointing. It spent much too long in the supernatural world and lost the excitement that is present in the rest of the series. It was like watching a Dr Who episode.

A shining pearl in the Emberverse series.

This is one of those books where the journey of reading it without any preconceptions is important as the emotions are linked to the many twists and turns. However the greatest accomplishment is how in book 14 of a series, Stirling keeps the story fresh with a whole new(ish) element.
Many of these books have a 'B' and occasionally a 'C' story to go alongside the main 'A' storyline, I was surprised however on which storyline was 'A' by the end of the book.
Definitely not a starting point for the series (although it could work as an awkward stand alone if you forget the start and end) I would recommend people going 3 books back to the Golden Princess as a picking up point. Is this my favourite in the series... I don't know but it's up there with Meeting at Corvallis or Sword of the Lady.
