"Princess Orlaith, heir to Rudi Mackenzie, Artos the First, High King of Montival, now wields the Sword of the Lady--and faces a new enemy. Fortunately, she also has a new ally in Reiko, Empress of Japan, who has been pursued to America by a conquering army from Asia. To combat their mutual foe, Orlaith and Reiko embark on a quest to find the fabled Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi, the Grass-Cutting Sword, one of the three great treasures of the Japanese Imperial House. But dreams have revealed that the road to Kusanagi lies through the meganecropolis of the City of Angels, the greatest and most perilous of the dead cities...and beyond it, to a castle in the fearful Valley of Death. And their relentless enemy will stop at nothing to prevent them from succeeding. For across the Pacific, the great arc of land that stretches from the dark kingdom of Korea to the realm of Capricornia in Australia is threatened by war. Now all the survivors of the Change must choose sides.... "--

So much setup. It's probably a good intro to the series -- the characters recap the important bits of the 10 previous books so you can jump in here.

I agree with the 2 recent readers about filler books. I really would like to see a book that showed pictures or sketches of the armament and clothing that are described in the books. And maybe an illustrator that reads the books to draw the book covers. Is that really too much to ask?

The latest in a series (now at 11 books!) which started very well in the first five or so books, but has become more and more bogged down with time. The post-apocalyptic low-technology theme was interesting at the start, but now it has devolved further into a 'kings and princesses' thing with magic swords and a privileged elite, with tedious descriptions of what they are wearing. I see no end to this series in sight, and sadly little new in the way of plot either (gee, another quest for yet another sword is underway). But, I'll keep reading the new books in hopes of any improvement.
