Overview

Book #18 in the multiple New York Times best-selling Ring of Fire series, and the team behind national bestseller 1635: The Kremlin Games. After carving a free state for itself in war-torn 17th century Europe, citizens of the modern town of Grantville, West Virginia contend with aristocratic forces determined to keep their grip on power whatever it takes.

When Grantville, West Virginia was transported back to the year 1631 --
in the middle of the Thirty Years' War, no less -- many things happened.
Many opportunities arose. It's said that a rising tide lifts all boats.
Perhaps not quite as high as the Barbie Consortium rose, however.

A cabal of ten- to twelve-year-old girls?

They aren't twelve anymore. And they gave up playing with dolls some
years ago, when they sold them all and started an investment consortium.
A consortium that did quite well.

The Barbie Consortium hits Vienna. In several different ways. The
princes and princesses, dukes and duchesses, the common men and women on
the street have no idea what's about to happen.Neither do the girls, but
they're determined it'll happen their way.

    Highly Recommended

    I have enjoyed the entire "Grantville" series. The characters are
    diverse and interesting. In the case of this particular segment the
    Barbie Consortium are both funny and effective advocates for the "up-
    timer" principles. For me one of the important considerations in the
    series is the general believability of the particular situation. In
    this case I can see the Barbies as being effective in Austria-Hungary.

    While I probably could have dealt without all the Economics of t

    While I probably could have dealt without all the Economics of the future/past, The continuing story of the Barbies IS a good read. BUT, enough already, The book literally drags through all this nonsense.  What I want to see is maybe, MAYBE instead of continuing to open MORE story lines, with more characters, go back to the characters we love, and tell us new stories surrounding them.  It's the 1632 universe, so its going to get a strong rating regardless, but I want to see whats happening in Russia, the Carribean, and the USE proper, even the POPE is a great sotry, thats just sitting there, waiting to be finished... It seems like the last few novels have ALL been a lead into, or an introduction to the future development of these individual arcs, but didnt you father ever tell you to FINISH what you started !!! I give it a solid 3.5 And know that I went out of my WAY to avoid giving away ANY spoilers, (Except maybe that Archduke Leopold, could become either the next Jack the Ripper, or a decent, and caring guy. I'm not sure HOW to feel about him right now.
