9780451461667: A Meeting at Corvallis (A Novel of the Change)

“A major work by an authentic master of alternate history.” – Booklist (Starred Review)
           
In the tenth year of the Change, the survivors in western Oregon live in a world without technology. Michael Havel’s Bearkillers hold the lands west of Salem in peace and order. To the east, the Clan Mackenzie flourishes under the leadership of Juniper Mackenzie, bard and High Priestess.
           
Together, they have held Norman Arminger—the warlord of Portland—at bay. With his dark fantasies of a neofeudal empire, Arminger rules much of the Pacific Northwest, spreading fear with his knights, castles, and holy inquisition. Even more dangerous, and perhaps Arminger’s most powerful weapon of all, is his ruthlessly cunning consort, Lady Sandra.
           
These factions haven’t met in battle because Arminger’s daughter has fallen into Clan Mackenzie’s hands. But Lady Sandra has a plan to retrieve her—even if it means plunging the entire region into open warfare...

About the Author:

S. M. Stirling is the New York Times bestselling author of many science fiction and fantasy novels, including the Novels of the Change (including Prince of Outcasts, The Desert and the Blade, The Golden Princess, The Given Sacrifice, Lord of Mountains) and the Shadowspawn series (A Taint in the Blood, The Council of Shadows, Shadows of Falling Night).

From AudioFile:

Border hostilities have been building for some time as the warlord of Portland tries to expand his empire throughout the post-change Pacific Northwest Territory. The prior books in this series provide valuable background in the development of the distinct cultures and tensions that are at play in this volume. Todd McLaren returns with a calm narration, interspersed with faster-paced, intense descriptions of skirmishes and major military confrontations. McLaren draws on a rich store of accents to create the characteristics and personalities of the separate cultures that have emerged. He moves smoothly between dialogue, internal monologues and asides, graphic description of battles, and detached observation of political intrigue. J.E.M. AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
