I enjoyed reading this book as I have enjoyed reading the rest of this extended & branching series. I am looking forward to seeing where they end up taking this storyline.

Russia hires uptimer slacker auto mechanic Bernie Zeppi to aid in their modernization, with unpredictable results.Not one of the better novels in the series, but certainly readable.

It was a fun read after a nasty week and I do not regret the price of the ARC. That said, and even as compared to the rest of the series, it is a shallow poorly written dungeon crawl. The characters were straight out of central casting. You get no emotional investment in any of them. The plot was predictable and really goes nowhere. I have an investment in the series and enjoy watching the period research getting applied. So if you are a series fan this is not quite the point where you stop buying new books but the fat lady is doing vocal exercises. As a stand alone book with no prior series investment it is simply too poorly done to be worth reading. Pity. Adding Muscovy was a good idea.

This on takes you further away from Grantville with two good ole boys trying to find the place in this new world since landing in the middle of the Germany during the Thirty Years War. You must read to find out how they try to help the Russians of that era.

One of the best 1631 books in a long time exciting could not put it down. Well researched Russian society of the 1600's.

No one is expecting a stand-alone novel in an open-ended series like 163X but this doesn't even qualify as half of a longer book. It reads like several Grantville Gazette non-fiction articles strung together for the first 320 pages, thin ly disguised as fiction by an ensemble cast of cardboard characters. During the final 80 pages things start to happen but 400 page limit exceeded so hit the stop button!
