A mysterious cosmic force—the “Ring of Fire”—has hurled the town of Grantville from 20th century West Virginia back to 17th century Europe, and into the heart of the Thirty Years War. With their seemingly magical technology, and their radical ideas of freedom and justice, the time-lost West Virginians have allied with Gustavus Adolphus, King of Sweden, to form the Confederated Principalities of Europe, changing the course of history—in ways both small and large. The saga begun in 1632 continues with all-new stories by New York Times best-selling authors Eric Flint and Andrew Dennis, plus Dave Freer, K. D. Wentworth, and other top writers, as the time-lost Americans attempt an underwater salvage operation to raise the sunken Swedish flagship, the uprising known as the Ram Rebellion continues, Cardinal Richelieu plots to destroy Grantville and its allies, an American prisoner of war carries on a dangerous romance with the Danish King’s daughter, and more in a volume that no fan of the Ring of Fire series will want to be without.

Meet the Author

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.” A longtime labor union activist with a Master’s Degree in history, he currently resides in northwest Indiana with his wife Lucille.

I'm a fan of the Ring of Fire books, but this one left me disappointed.

Flint keeps me awake at night. Once I start one of his books I have a hard time putting it down. His main characters and even some of the periferal ones are interesting and I want to hear more about them.

Some of the stories were good, some downright boring. I am beginning to find the ring of fire universe too disjointed to keep track of all that is going on. I guess I am not interested in devoting my life to one series. You would have to re-read all the books occasionally to keep up, unless you have an amazing memory.
