Publisher's Summary

Though the Thirty Years' War continues to ravage 17th-century Europe, history as it once happened has been strongly deflected by the new force that is rapidly gathering power and influence: the United States of Europe, an alliance between Gustavus Adolphus, King of Sweden, and the West Virginians from the 20th century, led by Mike Stearns, who were hurled centuries into the past by a mysterious cosmic accident - the Ring of Fire.

The USE has know-how of 20th-century technology, but the American traditions of freedom and justice are having an even stronger impact on Europe, and the rulers of Europe are powerless to stuff the Grantville genie back into the bottle.

Eric Flint is the author of the New York Times best seller 1634: The Galileo Affair (with Andrew Dennis) - a novel in his top-selling Ring of Fire alternate history series. His first novel for Baen, Mother of Demons, was picked by Science Fiction Chronicle as a best novel of the year. His 1632, which launched the Ring of Fire series, won widespread critical praise, as from Publishers Weekly, which called him "an SF author of particular note, one who can entertain and edify in equal, and major measure".

    "Very disjointed story"

    A lot of material is from earlier Grantville Gazettes. The storyline is very disjointed and very hard to follow along.This is not one of the better books of the series.

    "Definitely Tangled"

    This book is the bits and pieces of its sister book that did not fit in the other, but without the assistance of an independent plot to hang them on.

    "good but a bit disjointed"

    story is good but moves around so much it can be hard to follow if you are not up to speed with the whole series
