Overview

1636: The Kremlin Games by Eric Flint, Gorg Huff, Paula Goodlett

After carving a place for itself in war-torn 17th century Europe, the modern time-displaced town of Grantville, West Virginia has established its new mission and identity. Yet some have been left behind—people like goodtime Bernie Zeppi, courageous in battle, but a bust in life.

Bernie gets his second chance when he’s hired to help Mother Russia modernize. Now war with Poland is afoot and Russia is about to get a revolution from within—three centuries early! It’s do or die time for good-time Bernie. His task: to save the Russian woman he has come to love and the country he has come to call his own from collapse into a new Dark Age.

About 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.

This is a good addition to the 1632 series. It shows what happens when an Emperor or King fails and the only heir is a young girl leaving a constitutional crisis with democracy and the rights of the average person being threatened over the privileges of the rich and noble ones. This series is great at showing how government of the people allows individuals to make huge differences to the whole society. One the other hand if you like learning how 20th century technology can be (or can't be) recreated using 17th century tools this is great as well.
