The Protector's War: A Novel of the Change (Change Series)

The Protector's War - S.M. Stirling 10/2011 I liked this better the second time through. I was less caught up in the suspense and could pay more attention to the subtleties and character development. 12/2010 Solid second book in the series. Of necessity a little plodding, but still gripping nonetheless. The characters are strong, the world-building excellent, and the homage to Tolkien well-done indeed. The astronomical body count and the graphic descriptions of up-close war are, well, graphic. Yet in context it's believable, and not gratuitous.
