Although this one follows the tale of Nylan from the UFF Winterlance spacecraft that deposits the 'angels' on the Roof of the World, it is pretty out of place chronologically in telling the history of The Saga of Recluce; I'd recommend reading this well after Cyador's Heir/Magi'i/Scion of Cyador, etc...
But that aside, it reads better than even some following titles and you can really tell Modessit is on top of his game here. Most interesting are the relevant, relatable observations the 'angel-smith'/ former subnet-engineer makes, himself, in delineating the parallels between Recluce/modern Earth. For those reading deep into the series, this book in particular adds a lot of solid insight to the workings of order/chaos, in modern terms we can relate to.
Still not his best but way far from his worst!
