"Princess Orlaith, heir to Rudi Mackenzie, Artos the First, High King of Montival, now wields the Sword of the Lady--and faces a new enemy. Fortunately, she also has a new ally in Reiko, Empress of Japan, who has been pursued to America by a conquering army from Asia. To combat their mutual foe, Orlaith and Reiko embark on a quest to find the fabled Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi, the Grass-Cutting Sword, one of the three great treasures of the Japanese Imperial House. But dreams have revealed that the road to Kusanagi lies through the meganecropolis of the City of Angels, the greatest and most perilous of the dead cities...and beyond it, to a castle in the fearful Valley of Death. And their relentless enemy will stop at nothing to prevent them from succeeding. For across the Pacific, the great arc of land that stretches from the dark kingdom of Korea to the realm of Capricornia in Australia is threatened by war. Now all the survivors of the Change must choose sides.... "--… (mais)

I wanted to like this book but it was so boring. Now I will admit that I have not read any other books in this series and I have the next one sitting my TBR shelf given to me to review. But I am not going to go back and read the first series. This was just so boring that I am now dreading reading the next one. The characters, the setting, and the plot could have been interesting but the exposition that happened for page after page just killed it. So much of this book was just paragraph after paragraph explaining the same things over and over. I just wanted something to happen but nothing did. There are two fight scenes in this book but they both are ruined by the exposition. I was so glad when I finished this book but now I have to read the next one.

I give this book a Two out of Five stars. ( )

Stirling introduces the next generation in the Change Series, as the scope of the resurgent Cutters expands to Asia. The accuracy and speculation in this work are equal to the series, but this one was slower and more of a transition. ( )

So Orlaith and Reiko are going to go on a quest to the south to the LA area. Kind of felt that there was a lot that could have been done shorter and get started with the actual quest. ( )

The Golden Princess

This is the opening novel in a new series in the Emberverse. It segues perfectly with the last part of the last series. The fated king Artos is dead, slain by treachery after the introduction of new nations [Japan and Korea] and the return of ancient evil thought dead with the smashing of the Cutters. Plus there is an Australian chapter that hints at even vaster doings afoot. Yes, there are survivor states in Oz beyond Tasmania and through them a sea road to an East Indian and Indian Ocean trade network. The demonic danger has returned in new forms. A new generation must make a quest to recover a magic sword in a place that cannot, that should not exist, but apparently does. We have a new generation of heroes to undertake the venture as such quests are a province of the young. Two princesses newly come to power, but not fully invested therein, lead a cast of characters done with the loving detail that Stirling is known for. For readers of the prior series there is enough new detail as this baroquely strange society continues to evolve. As an example there is a cameo appearance of a wounded veteran of Horse Heaven Hills to remind readers of continuity without a data dump. For people newly come to the world, you really need nothing from the prior books to get vast enjoyment out of this one. There are some excellent action scenes but in the main the party is being assembled and launched upon a quest that only ends in glory or death. This is sword and sorcery the way it should have always been, a delicious mix of nostalgia and wonder. ( )
