Description: Last of the three alternate history novels of the Nantucket series by S. M. Stirling in which the island of Nantucket, Massachusetts is transported back to the Bronze Age. It covers the latter stages of the Republic of Nantucket's war against Walker and his empire. NOTE: Emberverse, or Change World, is a series of post-apocalyptic alternate history novels written by S. M. Stirling. The novels depict the events following "The Change", which caused electricity, guns, explosives, internal combustion engines, and steam power to stop working. Most of the action in the series takes place in the Willamette Valley of Oregon in the United States. The series primarily focuses on how the characters survive the loss of 600 years of technological progress. The original trilogy, Dies the Fire, concerns the conflicts between a Portland-based neo-feudal dictatorship and the free communities of the Willamette Valley, primarily the Wiccan Clan Mackenzie and the Bearkillers. The later series, The Change, focuses on the now-adult children of the original trilogy's major characters. The Emberverse is closely related to the preceding Stirling Nantucket series with The Event being the synonymous point of departure.
