This book was quite far into the series, however it chronicles the second Fall which is quite far before the activities of the first few books. Since the inhabitants were just starting to lose their technology for good (the computers died completely and solar panels were becomoing scarce and precious) you really got a sense of the reasonings behind certain things and the 'real' names of things from the first few books. This book also shows how the Harper Hall came to be which I found rather interesting.
Other than these few things though, the story itself did not hold up to the first few. It, like the first, was about getting ready for Fall in the face of having a unbeliever in their midst. I found that this book followed too many characters and watered down the story. You never really felt close to any of the characters so their many acheivements didn't impact you as much as they could have. This book almost felt like a few short stories cut up and interspersed to create a novel.

Interesting, but not particularly well written, and with poorly developed characters and plot points.
