After The Dying Time by Raymond Dean White
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Not as gripping as the first installation in the series, this story is less about the asteroidycalypse and the following rebuilding of civilization but more about a huge war fought with the remaining technical artifacts left over from before the Dying Time.
It was interesting food for thought to see how King Joe was actually doing a better job of rebuilding civilization but at the same time drifting closer and closer to Nazi community with slaves and “nobility”.
On the other hand, the war took up nearly all of the story while I would have loved to read a bit more about the rebuilding efforts and how the world changed but that might be personal preference 🙂
