Major David Valentine and his fugitive battalion are the remnants of an expeditionary force shattered in its long retreat from disaster in the Appalachians. Between a raging blizzard, bands of headhunters, and the need to recover wounded soldiers lost during the retreat, Valentine is in for the toughest winter of his life.
And Valentine is losing allies fast. Some of the clans in the region have declared themselves in favor of the Kurians, throwing Kentucky into civil war. But the Kurian overlords have determined that the region isn't worth the effort of another conquest. Their order: extermination.

1 . good, IF you've reall all the other books
Posted January 09, 2010 by Gort , MariettaI enjoyed this book, but, honestly, not much happens. I think the main point of this book was to set up a new direction and major quest for David Valentine. The new direction does seem exciting and will probably wrap up the series, but I'm sure it can be drawn out over several more books.
Two disappointing things in this book. First, there was almost no action and David didn't seem to use any of his special lifeweaver-given powers. Second, an intersting exploration of the the metal changes the lifeweavers gave David was teased, but nothing ever came of it.
If you have not read ALL the previous books in this series, I highly doubt you will understand what is happening, let alone enjoy the book.
