    Book details

"[An] epic series,"* the Novels of the Change by New York Times bestselling author S. M. Stirling chronicle a postapocalyptic landscape of medieval and mystical monarchies ruling and warring across a world where mysterious Powers removed advanced technology. A new alliance has been forged between the High Kingdom of Montival and the Empire of Japan, but at the cost of a lost prince...

John Arminger Mackenzie wanted to be a troubadour, but fate made him the son of the King of Montival. His sister Princess Orlaith will deservedly inherit the throne of the High Kings, and it will pass on to him only in the event of her death, leaving the young prince on an unknown path to discover his true role in the family.

The opportunity to prove his mettle comes when John's ship, the Tarshish Queen, is caught in the fierce storm raised against the enemies of the alliance. When the clouds recede and the skies clear, John and his crew find themselves on the other side of the Pacific, in the island chains of the Ceram Sea, fighting to survive against vicious pirates and monstrous creatures of the deep while meeting new allies and mysterious enemies of this world and another.

Now Prince John must seize his birthright and lead his people in battle against the darkest forces man and nature can conjure against them.

  • By patacake on 8 January 2017

    too much time spent on food and clothes meaning the adventure in the desert is reduced to a few pages

    What a shame! Stirling has done what he has done before, taken a strong story that would make a excellent single novel, padded it with endless descriptions of meals and verbose and inconsequential sub-plots, and made it into two half books. If you read Prince of Outcasts now (September 2016) you won't know how the story ends until you fork out for yet another book in a year's time.All the things that make me a long term fan of Stirling's writing are still there, the ideas, the exciting and dramatic action scenes, even the strong characters, but they are lost in too much dross and the lack of any proper conclusion is unforgivable. This is a full length novel (and priced as such!) not a chapter in a part work. The previous book in the series, The Desert and the Blade, while clearly part of a greater saga, did succeed as a novel in its own right bringing one element to conclusion, this one does not. Maybe Stirling's mind is elsewhere on his ideas for an alt-history around Teddy Roosevelt and he is just trying to finish off his contractual obligations to his publishers but he desperately needs an editor that will point out the flaws, not just tell him how wonderful it all is. Apart from the major issues I've mentioned there are stupid little errors e.g. Fred Thurston's wife is Virginia, not Victoria as given in this book (p143 in the Kindle edition). How on earth does that get past anybody who has read the rest of te series?Final warning, do not start on the Emberverse series with this book. The world will make no sense if you do not know most of the story told in the twelve (yes, twelve!) books.

    I really like this series, but I found this the weakest of all of them. The half of the story set in Montival, was just dull. Really did not add anything to the plot. The half set in the Pacific, was much better. The book is nowhere as good as Desert and the Blade. I will get his next one, but if its like this, then it will be the last one I do buy.
