Publisher's Summary

Though the Thirty Years' War continues to ravage 17th-century Europe, history as it once happened has been strongly deflected by the new force that is rapidly gathering power and influence: the United States of Europe, an alliance between Gustavus Adolphus, King of Sweden, and the West Virginians from the 20th century, led by Mike Stearns, who were hurled centuries into the past by a mysterious cosmic accident - the Ring of Fire.
The USE has know-how of 20th-century technology, but the American traditions of freedom and justice are having an even stronger impact on Europe, and the rulers of Europe are powerless to stuff the Grantville genie back into the bottle.
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".

Intricate narrative linking some B- team threads

What happens to support the major characters of the Ring of Fire. Who has to bear the brunt of the consequences of the these events, politics, and policies? The administrators, sergeants, and others on the B-team and C-team character list, of course!!! Because this narrative weaves together threads from the previous books, across almost 5 years of action, this book is best read soon after them, or after re-reading them.

Out of order

If you could sum up 1635 in three words, what would they be?

Food for thought

What other book might you compare 1635 to and why?


Any additional comments?

This book like the others of the series is a good listen but it should precede the Dreesden Incident. The other book makes significant references to actions that are covered by this book.
