9780451240125: Iron Winter: The Northland Trilogy

Praised as “not only a gifted storyteller but also a master of speculative fiction” (Library Journal), bestselling author Stephen Baxter brings his epic Northland trilogy to a close as a once-thriving civilization faces winter without end....
 
Many generations ago, the Wall was built to hold back the sea. A simple dam, it grew into a vast linear city, home to scholars, builders, and merchants. Northland’s prosperity survived wars and unrest—and brought the whole of Europe together.
 
But now darkness is falling. Days grow shorter, temperatures colder, and in the wake of long winters come famine, destruction, and terror. As a mass exodus to warmer climes threatens to fracture Northland, one man believes he can outwit the cold, and even salvage some scraps of the great civilization—before interminable gloom settles over the land; before the fires of war lay waste to an empire; before the ice comes....

From Booklist:

Baxter wraps up his epic-size Northland trilogy (the first two volumes being Stone Spring, 2011, and Bronze Summer, 2012). As fans of the first two books know, Northland is the author’s fictional stand-in for Doggerland, the ancient land mass that was consumed by the North Sea, an offshoot of the Atlantic Ocean, about 8,200 years ago after an ice age. Doggerland connected the island of what is now Great Britain to mainland Europe, and in Baxter’s fictional world, the people of Northland built an enormous wall that kept back the rising waters. A civilization grew and prospered, but now, in the trilogy’s final installment, nearly 7,500 years later (roughly 1315, by our calendar), a new ice age threatens to destroy Northland. Baxter’s history is considerably different from our own, and as always, his characters, including the scholar Pyxeas, the bearer of probably the worst news any civilization wants to hear, are beautifully drawn. Fans of the first two books are strongly advised to read this one. Newcomers may want to start at the beginning to get the full, epic sweep of the story. --David Pitt
