A brand new Novel of the Change from New York Times bestselling author S. M. Stirling
John Arminger Mackenzie wanted to be a troubadour, but fate made him the son of the king of Montival. Despite his lineage, his sister Princess Órlaith will deservedly inherit the throne and it will only pass unto him in the event of her death.
The opportunity to prove his mettle to himself and his family arrives after John’s ship, the Tarshish Queen, is caught in a fierce storm in the Pacific Ocean. When the clouds recede and the skies clear, John and his crew find themselves in Southeast Asia, fighting to survive against vicious pirates and monstrous creatures of the deep.
Now, Prince John must lead his people in battle against the darkest forces man and nature can conjure against them...
