S. M. Stirling presents the stunning and epic conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Change series, now in paperback.

And from the emerging superpower of Mongolia, the Sky-Blue Wolves of the High Steppe ride once more beneath the banner of Genghis Khanthe thunder of their hooves resounding across a world in turmoil.
I was a big fan of the books in the beginning of this series but having missed the last 4 or 5 this was not the place to resume reading the series. Lots happens as the next generation prepares to take the reins, we have battles and politics and intrigue. Even without being sure who was who I enjoyed the book. Fans of the series will find this a satisfying read that may, or may not, be the end of our adventures in the Changed world. ~~ Stephanie L Bannon
