A 'Tour De Force' Conclusion,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Iron Winter (Northland Book 3) (Kindle Edition)
It is very rare for alternative-history storytellers to come up with something as brilliant as this. I can only imagine that Baxter has somehow 'stepped' into this subtly different time-line or channeled the narrative from someone already there! The rapid descent, over a handful of years, from a benign climate to a full-on ice age with snow and ice as far south as the Mediterranean, and the chaos it causes to worlwide civilisation, is told with insightfulness and measured tension. There is even a inconvenient message for today's Green movement.
As good as Aldiss at his best in the 'Helliconia' trilogy, I have no hesitation in giving 'Iron Winter' 5*
