For me, this was better than the first book. I enjoyed the Wiccan jokes, and I enjoyed the author's grasp of witch jargon. I very much appreciate that the characters recognize that much of what their culture is like today would have been ridiculous before the Change, even to other people into their hobbies. There is still the problem that the Change is not well explained, and that just about every character you meet has some sort of hobby that hearkens back to a pre-industrial age, but I'm willing to forgive the author that as long as I enjoy his world. I enjoy his world, even if it seems like some it is not well thought out. As for characters, Juniper is both a delight and an annoyance. Mike is infinitely practical. His wife is a real character, with some serious steel in her spine. I'm fond of her, but have no idea how to spell her name. lol The rangers interest me, and I wish they had more of their own book, but I think the next book skips their generation. As far as the various romances, I'm not really satisfied. The author seems like he doesn't really want to show his readers how things come to be so much as just showing how they end up. He does that a lot, but it bugs me more with some things than others. I'm not sure why he chose to write his books so many years apart, with important happenings going on between them, but he did. It's as annoying as the romances. Not annoying enough to turn me away just yet, but annoying. I do like that he seems to have grown his romances out of friendships, though he does a poor job of showing that. For all this, you would think that I did not like this book, but I really did like it. A lot. I'm annoyed because someone dropped the ball in a world I enjoy visiting. ( )

So while i did like it; i'm only giving it a 3 due to too much repetition with the whole witches thang; gets old really quickly jamming it down our throats; seriously give it a rest; actually takes away from the story; however I loved love loved 2 quotes from the book; when Havel says "my son my son" after the horse thing; and when; Stirling did a take of of Eastwood's Dirty Harry famous magnum quote; awesome!!!

Really enjoyed this book in the series and look forward to moving on to the next. There were some interesting twists that were uncovered in this sequel and I really enjoyed it. A couple of moments were a little predictable, which is why I gave it 4 stars. ( )

It is unusual for a sequel to be better than the first volume, but this book has better pacing and plot resolution. I was hesitant to recommend this series based on the first book but after finishing the second one I would be more likely to recommend. ( )

It is year 8, after The Change. People are trying to survive, relearning how to grow their own food, protect themselves from marauders and warlords. The Bear Killer Clan and Clan Mackenzie are separate but close, with a mutual pact to assist when the self-styled Protector once again sends his forces to conquer them.

Lots of details with regard to primitive survival, and a surprisingly strong emphasis on worship of the Goddess.

Characters are well drawn and strong, and the plot is clear and pointed, with one small exception at the end.

It has cliff hangers though so beware. I'm having to hurry up and read the next book in the series right now! ( )
