Alternate history master Eric Flint returns to top form with an epic addition to the multiple New York Times best-selling Ring of Fire series.
A cosmic accident sets the modern town of Grantville, West Virginia, down in war-torn 17th-century Europe, and a new nation is forged. Now after carving a place for itself among the struggling powers of Western Europe, Grantville must throw up its eastern bulwarks against Dark Age domination. But the challenge for the down-time Eastern European horde is just as great: how to crawl out of a deeper feudal shadow than any in the West - and step into the light of freedom.

A ¼-way into the book, I was almost sure I'd wasted a credit; but I'm sure happy I stayed with it. This book is a point of inflection for the series, and really want to hear what happens next! The stage changes so much that I found myself wondering, " How did I get here? Did I miss something?" Upon reviewing the story-line I realized that I missed a lot!.Be warned, if you need a book that wraps everything up with a tight ending....this ain't it! But the author does an excellent of setting up a logical new path forward.
