Publisher Description

'An absorbing collaborative effort from the two giants of SF' Guardian

A generation after the events of The Long Earth, mankind has spread across the new worlds opened up by Stepping. Where Joshua and Lobsang once pioneered, now fleets of airships link the stepwise Americas with trade and culture.

Mankind is shaping the Long Earth – but in turn the Long Earth is shaping mankind ... A new ‘America’, called Valhalla, is emerging more than a million steps from Datum Earth, and it is growing restless . . .

Meanwhile the Long Earth is suffused by the song of the trolls, graceful hive-mind humanoids. But the trolls are beginning to react to humanity’s thoughtless exploitation . . .

And a gathering multiple crisis that threatens to plunge the Long Earth into a war unlike any mankind has waged before.

Meh

Decent writing but doesn't really progress the story at all. Follows various characters on side issues that don't really go anywhere or add anything worthwhile to the first book.

A recommended read

Both books have had me totally absorbed, one after the other.

A fascinating and appealing premise, and a moving storyline with characters that leave me wanting a third book - will have to wait (im)patiently to see if one is planned.
