5.0 out of 5 stars Spoiler warning ! 4 Oct 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I just read the Given Sacrifice. It nicly ties up the story. If you, as I have done , read all the others in the series it is ofcourse a must. The story is thight but there should be a continuation
What is going to happen the eagle scouts and the Japanese ? We are promised a continuation set maybe 20 years later S.M says on his homepage. I would like to se maybe 10 years after this one.
The details are very good , one realy gets a feeling of being present. What I really would like is a better map, ofcourse this being a regular complaint of mine. It would not, whith a long series like this, do any harm to have list of persons. The main persons you remeber but if a person turn up in one book and then two books later it takes a while for me to remeber him.
However its a very good book so hurry up an buy it!

3.0 out of 5 stars End of the beginning ? 17 Jan 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This episode in the saga tries to wrap up some of the threads in the storyline, but left me feeling that there should be much more to come in the future. I hope Steve Stirling will continue to develop this epic tale and tell us more about the wider world beyond Montival.

4.0 out of 5 stars pretty good installment in a great series 9 Dec 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Really rather enjoyed this, the previous book didnt really move the story on very much- this one moves us considerably further and introduces the next generation of changelings. I dont know whether this is supposed to be the last of the series, in some ways it felt like it with a lot of loose ends being tied up- but the ending is left open for more books. It does have a few of the general problems of the series- Stirlings lesbian obsession for example (and rather unpleasant treatment of most male gay characters - but at least Rigobert de Stafford FINALLY gets a boyfriend in this one). I was also expecting the final showdown at Corwin to be a little more apocalyptic. Overall though this is almost up to the standards of the earlier books.

This story tells the events following the creation of the high kingdom and the final confrontation with the CUT.
As ever the characters are believable and you care about what's happening.
However - an this is why it does not get 5 after the confrontation with the prophet at Corwin the follow up is a bit like the third volume of Lord of the Rings with a series of stories while Orlaith grows up leading to the set up for the "next Generation".
I think it would have worked better to deal with the aftermath of the victory and i am sure there would have been a lot of stories which could have been told. If you have read the other change novels this is a must read but for a new reader it might be difficult to "get into" . .

3.0 out of 5 stars Tired 27 Nov 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As a big fan of S.M. Stirlings books especially the Change Novels I was a little disappointed in this novel and its predecessor the Lord of Mountains. To be honest the author seems to have stretched one good novel over two books, even as someone who enjoys detailed infomation about the people and culture in the books I read there seemed more padding than perfection. I hope the following books are more punchy than paunchy, that said if you are a fan of the Change you do really need to complete your collection.
