The Protector's War by SM Stirling

Title: The Protector's War
Author: SM Stirling
Series: The Change, book 2
Genre: Postapocalyptic fiction.
Reason for Reading: Loved the first book, Dies the Fire.
Pages: 591
Copyright Date: 2006
Cover: A young man stands on top of a ruined car, holding a bow in his right hand. A quiver of arrows is on his back.
First line: I've been here before, John Hordle suddenly realized, his thumb moving over the leather that covered the grip of his bow.
Best part: Really engrossing.
Worst part: Reading two of these novels in a short period of time makes you feel a bit paranoid about the end of the world.
Imaginary Theme Song: "Tangled Up in Blue"

Recommended for: Those who have read the first book.

These books are like crack. Apparently there are going to be at least five in the series - yikes! By the end I'll have hard copies of watermill blueprints in my house, or be raising my own goats, or something.
