Prince of Outcasts, the newest entry in S.M. Stirling’s epic Change series is set for a hardcover release on September 6, 2016. The novels of the Change are set in a post-apocalyptic world where mysterious Powers have removed humanity’s capability to develop and use advanced technology. In the years since the change new medieval and mystical societies have developed in the vacuum left by the collapse of the old world.
In this newest book, Stirling focuses on John Arminger Mackenzie, who has dreamed of becoming a troubadour, but instead his fate has placed him second in line to the throne of the High Kings after his sister Órlaith. He is left with the task of finding his own place and role in the ruling family of Montival. John’s ship is blown off course and he and his crew are left stranded on the other side of Pacific fighting for their survival against pirates and the enemies of this world and all life.
