Harry Turtledove hailed Island in the Sea of Time as "one of the best time travel/alternative history stories I've ever read," and Jane Lindskold called Against the Tide of Years "another exciting and explosive tale." Now the adventures of the Nantucket islanders lost in the time of the Bronze Age continues with On the Oceans of Eternity .

Ten years ago, the twentieth century and the Bronze Age were tossed together by a mysterious Event. In the decade since, the Republic of Nantucket has worked hard to create a new future for itself, using the technological know-how retained from modern times to explore and improve conditions for the inhabitants of the past.

Some of these peoples have become allies. Some have turned instead to the renegade Coast Guard officer William Walker. And for ten years, the two sides have tested each other, feinting and parrying, to decide who will be the ones to lead this brave new world into the future.

Now the official battle lines have been drawn. And only one side can emerge the victor...

I could go on for pages describing exactly why this three book series was a complete waste of my time, but I will just skip it and say this. If you prefer at least a BIT of realism and believable action in your fantasy and/or alternate history genre, you will NOT like this crap. I feel cheated for even ordering in these books, but it does explain WHY they weren't stocked in most of the system.

Thank you Hamiltony I'll look up the sister series.

Dhcamper- I believe this is the last of the Nantucket trilogy, but there is a sister series (The Change or Emberverse series) that takes place in the world Nantucket disappeared from, staring with Dies the Fire.

when I read this book, I was led to believe by the ending that there where more. But this is the last one in the series I can find on the Vpl site. Is this the last book?

The drawn out conclusion to the Nantucket trilogy. Should have been shorter.
