where high technology that borders on magic is used to create the moonrisen, people with the genes of animals Boston, which looks at the growing strength of Middle Kingdom, united under the brilliant King and Commander, Sam Monroe, and sees a time when Boston will not rule A coup destroys Middle Kingdom s royal family, save for young Prince Bajazet With Boston s minions in pursuit, before long Baj is Prince no longer, just a man on the run His saviours are three of the moon s children, who are conspiring with the surviving northern Tribes to overthrow Boston Baj has no choice he must side with

other two It s been hundreds of years since a change in Jupiter s orbit brings on a massive ice age, and modern civilization collapses The action takes place in North America, and a variety of regional communities have grown up I really like all the different societies, and the characters he creates In the first book, I had some trouble believing that the ecology economy of the Trappers would work, and became happier as they migrated south In the second book, I found the Middle Kingdom and North Map Mexico to be believable, and the sweeping action riveting The third book takes the action through the Indian tribes up to DNA twisting science fictionally magical Boston return return The second and third books open about 20 years after the end of the previous book, with a protagonist who is a young man now and was a baby at the end of the earlier book a most unusual way to continue a series, and quite satisfying The second book is war, and politics, between three regions It s rather grounded and realistic, thought there are some fantastic elements The third book is a quest The action is one long trip, probably suicidal, to strike a blow for justice This book takes us into the strangeness that Boston has created, and goes through other wonders The farmers are eerie, the animalistic Boston Guard is astonishing, and the climbing sequence is fantastic I did have a bit of trouble in the 3rd book, keeping suspension of disbelief down about the Boston economy return return While each book is quite different, and probably could be read on its own, I think you ll getout of them by reading them in order, if only due to the handful of continuing characters If I hadn t read them in order, I wouldn t have been on the edge of my seat, terrified, as Martha traveled from her home to the Island Yowza return return There are wonderful, strong women characters Catania the Trapper doctor Patience the slightly mad, rather blood thirsty, flying Bostonian meddler Queen Joan of the Middle Kingdom, who was Crazy Joan of the Trappers, and likely to say Fuck, let s get this over with on ceremonial occasions and Nancy the sort of fox Charmian is critical to Sam Monroe s greatest military victory return return They re kinda, sorta Indian tribes Some series get better as they move along, and some are pretty steady Others, however, just seem to get worse, and that s where I am with this one Despite the fact that I can generally be counted on to read pretty much anything that s considered to be apocalyptic post apocalyptic, it was a real slog finishing this series As with the second book, the tone and character of the third book differed greatly from the ones that came before it, which can be interesting in the right hands This time, Some series get

much anything that s considered to be apocalyptic post apocalyptic, it was a real slog finishing this series As with the second book, the tone and character of the third book differed greatly from the ones that came before it, which can be interesting in the right hands This time, however, the characters are evenone dimensional and the constant praise given to warm time words and phrases that are supposedly so perfect is evengrating On top of that, large portions of the plot don t make the slightest bit of sense There s one point where a number of characters spend days climbing an unrealistically high ice wall, and those pages once you ignore the fact that it s pretty ridiculous to begin with had a really nice tension and flow to them I l probably remember that scene farther down the road, but the rest of this book is perfectly forgettable A good idea for a series overall, just poorly executed I m so happy to be finished with this series I had to make myself finish the last book The premise and the story aren t bad, but the author or his editor needs a refresher course Every other page he will use a word and then say Wonderful warm time word or Perfect copybook phrase It was extremely tedious and bordered on ridiculous I could see it if he had one character who said that a lot, was fascinated by people using rare words or something, but it s EVERY character

occasionally dull road trip, after the frantic flight and search for a home of Snowfall and the war story that was Kingdom River A fitting close to Smith s Snowfall series All set in the same world with crossover of some characters, each book had a different tone Moonrise follows the son of a fallen conqueror, adopted son of the River King, and what he does when his old life is shut away A tale of revenge, sacrifice, horror, love, and true humanity told in Smith s characteristic immersive style.These three are his only fantasies, and I m very curious to read his other stuff which appears to be mostly crime fiction. 3rd book in the Snowfall Trilogy set in a premature future Ice Age brought about by alterations in the orbit of Jupiter after several major comet impacts which in turn altered the Earth s orbit or declination to the degree that a new Ice Age was created in mere decades thus wiping out modern civilization and leaving the survivors with meager remnants of basic technology. Conclusion to the Snowfall Trilogy Prince Baj, the third generation crosses the east coast to take on Boston Limp coming of age sort of tale Kinda dull no real reason to care about Baj Just a long, dull road trip mostly. I enjoyed.
