    New York Times best-selling author Eric Flint continues his Ring of Fire series with esteemed sci-fi author Charles E. Gannon. Rome in the year 1635 finds Frank Stone and his pregnant wife Giovanna in the clutches of Cardinal Borgia, whose political machinations and papal assassins may soon elevate him to Pope Borgia. Now Frank, along with Harry Lefferts and his infamous Wrecking Crew, must protect Pope Urban VII from all manner of treachery.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Uncritical readers without much knowledge of history


    What could Charles E. Gannon and Eric Flint have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The manuscript attempted to build up the skill and threat of a primary adversary by having him soundly defeat an established character. Unfortunately, the means by which this was done is so improbable as to break the suspension of disbelief.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    None, really.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Irritation and disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    Rather than relying on improbably, unrealistic devices, put more thought and development into the adversaries.
