Read ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ✓ S.M. Stirling Read & Download The Scourge of God ê PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free The Scourge of God is a novel of The Change seriesRudi Mackenzie son and heir of the High Priestess Juniper Mackenzie and the Bear Lord Mike Havel continues his trek across the land that once was the United States of America His destination Nantucket where he hopes to learn the truth behind the Change which rendered technology around the globe inoperableDre. The hype has been pretty steady for SM Stirling as he has written eight different books based on one imaginary event An as yet unexplained 1998 eventexplosion over Nantucket Island that seriously disrupted the planet to the extent that 90% of the world s population died when electric power internal combustion engines and all non muscle powered machinery essentially stopped working It also had an impact on medieval times the subject of the first three books The Scourge of God Roc 2595 450 pages is the latest and it confirms an unusual choice for Stirling who built his reputation as an alternate history writer That is there s been a major change that shifts history s direction but aside from that everything else is normal In The Sunrise Lands the first book of the second trilogy after the Change as the event is called there were hints of fantasy but they have become the focus of The Scourge of God Now our heroes and heroes they very clearly are with feats of derring do and plenty of battles must overcome what appears to be a demon that can control human beings at long distances and turn them into unkillable zombie like creatures In return of course they have some otherwordly help of their own and the result is that the series has now moved into the category of traditional fantasy than a logically played out alternate historyGiven that Stirling already has some serious splaining to do how come the Change allowed just enough electrical activity for our hearts to beat and brains to work but not enough for sparks to ignite combustion which implies a conscious design this to me is an unnecessary layer Stirling had a very good thing going with a blank canvas to play with but decided to do some paint by numbers fantasy instead It s still pretty good and I enjoyed reading it but unless he ties in the demon the good gods and the Change agent into one big backstory I think he s hurt his vision rather than helped it

So far so good I am impressed that Stirling is putting his characters in real danger and letting them even our favorites get really hurt There have always been heavy religious elements to the Change books but ignoring the change itself there s been little that is truly supernatural with the exception of a few experiences of Juniper s group For the most part rationalists and agnostics are not given all that much to challenge their positions But this is changing In Scourge the CUT Church Universal and Triumphant is growing in influence and it becomes inescapably clear that at least the upper echelon of the church is well and truly demon possessed Not sure where exactly he s going with this element As a Christian I would love to see him resolve it by discovering that only the Catholics perhaps in the figure of Father Ignatius can stand against the CUT leadership But I don t have much hope of this really I expect Rudi and his merry and mixed band of mainly witches will find their purity of heart eual to the challenge Oh well

Stirling Read & Download The Scourge of God ê PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free He has been taught God has punished humanity by destroying technological civilization Now the Prophet's Cutters perform the holy task of destroying any technological remnants they come across and those who dare use themBut one fanatical officer of the Sword of the Prophet has an ever greater mission to stop Rudi from reaching Nantucket by any means necessary. Fifth in the overall Emberverse apocalyptic science fiction series and the second in the second trilogy in the Emberverse The Change which revolves around Rudi and his merry country crossing disparate band that includes Mathilda Edain with Garbh Odard Father Ignatius Frederick Thurston and the twins Mary and RitvaMy TakeIt s a terrifying start and only gets scarier There is action galore terrifying adventures ambushes torture attacks hair raising escapes horrible wounds deaths Western duels chases war There are disasters and triumphs times to mourn and time to rest One mercy are those epigraphs at the start of some of the chapters that uote a ballad or poem written by Fiorbhinn Mackenzie in the first century CY It helps when I m hyperventilating over the actionThat battle to rescue Ingolf Matti and Odard is terrifying for what it reveals The truth it displays about what motivates leaders of the CUT It s in the aftermath of this battle that Father Ignatius and Rudi wonder if their generation is moving back into the time of myths and legends And Odard told Matti he loved herI do enjoy and feel Rudi s frustration lol Stirling s minor conflict of Matti holding true to her faith and holding to her virginity for the man she marries while Rudi s faith has no problem with casual friendly sex There are aspects to Rudi s faith that I enjoy and his comments about the differences between Matti s Christian faith and his own are hilarious That bit about why Catholics think their God likes them to be uncomfortable the time they waste on guiltOdard has the nerve to compare his dad to Chuck Barstow I loved Rudi s riposte and he picked up a busload of stranded childrenOh lol I guess Hordle was a Monty Python fan Nobody expects the Elvish InuisitionIt s outnumbered they are and a bowman cries out that it s simply an opportunity for targets Ya gotta appreciate a positive attitudeMatti wonders how the Mackenzies and the Buddhists get the same answers as the Christians and Father Ignatius essentially tells her that Christ s Passion and Resurrection moved backward and forward in time That it s the only true myth implying that the rest are simply myth FiguresFred picks up some wisdom with their travels as he notes that the laws of a land are not what s important but the type of men who rule that matterI can t help but laugh about Winnemuca s comment as well about the Mackenzie war paintYou white eyes always go overboard with an idea once you steal itFarmers today might be envious of Heuisink s wealth in the Emberverse as he explains tax write offs in the old days to RudiWow Des Moines sounds incredibly impressive with its factories It also sounds incredibly awful with the soot and smog of the coalAnd Rudi is not looking forward to than a year of no sexI see youThe StoryA mystical rite among the clan s priestesses expose the women to their own visions of the future a prelude of what is to come for our brave bandIt continues with Rudi and the survivors
