Series: The Change #3
Genre: Post-apocalyptic, technological breakdown and buildup, sci fi.
Reason for Reading: I'm hooked. Sad but true.

Cover: A guy wearing a chainmail tunic, holding a battleax. Wrecked skyscrapers are in the background, as well as a horse-drawn cart.
First line: "Norman Arminger -- he rarely thought of himself as anything but the Lord Protector these days - stared at the great map that showed his domains, and those of his stubbornly independent neighbors; it covered the whole of the former Oregon and Washington, with bits of the old states of Idaho and northern California thrown in."
Best part: Dramatic conclusions!
Worst part: Series seems to be extending indefinitely.
