The Sunrise Lands - S.M. Stirling I am totally addicted to this story, so I enjoyed reading this, but it was some of Stirling's sloppiest writing work yet. Everything about the Dies the Fire trilogy that was annoying (writing style wise) was all over the place here. For example, there was a whole lot of skipping over important scenes entirely (we watch the characters prepare and then suddenly they are talking about how it is over). As the characters are traveling cross country, however, you get a glimpse of what is going on in the rest of the country which is quite fascinating. I'd recommend it to fans, but if you didn't get into Dies the Fire, then don't bother.
