by Harry Turtledove

Genre: Fantasy, General Fantasy

RT Rating

In this fantastic journey into revolutionary history on an undiscovered continent, the characters are as magnetic and resourceful as true historical heroes should be. Readers will be delightfully drawn to the newly forming country of Atlantis as they mark and compare our own American history with the progress of our "sister" colony. This is an engaging read, cover to cover.

Discontent is in the air of the British colony of Atlantis. Taxation without representation in Parliament is breathing wind into the sails of revolution. But when Redcoats begin to occupy Atlantis' vital coastal towns, Atlanteans realize they must fight, or lose the liberty they have come to hold dear.

Victor Radcliff, a veteran of Britain's war with France on these shores, is the obvious choice to lead the newly formed Atlantean army against the royal troops. Faced with an army that is larger and more disciplined and has the support
of an empire behind it, General Radcliff is determined to make the ragtag and fiercely independent men of his militia a fighting force to be reckoned with. With resourceful wit and colonial grit on their side, they may yet create a new nation
-- the United States of Atlantis. (Roc, Dec., 438 pp., $25.95)
