Reviews and Notes

Summary/Annotation ->  Stephen Baxter's "imaginative [and] bold"* novel Stone Spring drew readers into an alternate prehistoric scenario that now continues with Bronze Summer . Thousands of years have passed. And a wall that was built to hold back the sea, must now hold back the advancing armies of a reviving Troy… What would have been the bed of the North Sea is now Northland, a society of prosperous, literate and self-sufficient people. They live off the bounty of the land, an area created by the building of the Wall. It began as a simple dam, thousands of years ago. Now, inhabited from end to end, the Wall is a linear city stretching for hundreds of miles, and a wonder of the world. For millennia, the Wall has also kept the growing empires of the Bronze Age at bay. But decades of drought have destabilized those eastern civilizations. Men--and women--filled with greed and ambition have now turned their eyes toward the fertile West. A new and turbulent age is dawning. For any wall, no matter how strong, can be breached--particularly from within… * Daily Mail (UK)   .
