Audible - If you do a series do the whole series!!

I read many of the Ring of Fire series in hardcopy years ago and I was thrilled that it came out in audio form.

The problem with this book (which I had not read before) is that is you need the other 1634 and 1635 books to make sense of the story line here. But Audible is missing several of those books.

Here is Eric Flints Recommended order for the series:
Ring of Fire
1634: The Baltic War

(Somewhere along the way, after you’ve finished 1632, read the stories and articles in the first three paper edition volumes of the Gazette.)

1634: The Ram Rebellion
1634: The Galileo Affair
1634: The Bavarian Crisis

(Somewhere along the way, read the stories and articles in the fourth paper edition volume of the Gazette.)

Ring of Fire II
1635: The Cannon Law
1635: The Dreeson Incident
1635: The Tangled Web

(Somewhere along the way, read the stories in Gazette V.)

1635: The Papal Stakes
1635: The Eastern Front
1636: The Saxon Uprising
Ring of Fire III
1636: The Kremlin Games

Basically the entire middle part of the story line (from after Baltic War through The Grantville Gazette V) is not available.

I understand the Gazettes not being there but the others are critical to understanding all the back story.
For example, Sharron Nichols getting married (last seen crying over her loss of Hans Richter). And the Stone boy and his wife in prison when and how did they get there.

Please audible fill in the gaps!!!

Do you think 1635 needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No, The book it follows is not available from audible. There are four 1634 books and only one is here. Vastly disappointing since this volume references and follows closely one of the volumes not available the same thing is going to happen with the 1636 as there are multiple 1635 booksand again this is the only 1635 that does not coincide with this story.
highly disappointing.
