If you’ve listened to books by E.E. Knight before, how does this one compare?
HIs last three books have seemed incomplete and poorly edited. There are gaps in the storylines or references to events that have not yet happened (especially in Appalachian Overthrow) that seem to scream that nobody carefully checked the book. This is a shame because the stories are enjoyable.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Baltic Gambit?
Would not have cut any but demanded fleshing out! Frustrated by disjointed jumps and apparent non-sequitors, especially in Chapter 10. It was already frustrating to pay full price for a novella, and it wasn't even internally consistent. I actually went to look in the print edition because I was convinced there had been some strange abridgement, but the fault was in the book itself.
Any additional comments?
I wish the author and editors would show some actual concern for tying together a tight story. They've created an interesting universe and likable characters, but all that gets lost when the reader is constantly trying to figure out what he/she missed that led to the current events or dialogue.

Is there anything you would change about this book?
Better writing. it seemed rushed, like the author's heart wasn't in it.. the story is thick where it shouldn't and thin where it should be. The last couple of books, I felt the same. I like the universe the author created, but he is getting bad advice just is putting out books to be an author.
What does Christian Rummel bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Christian Rummel is the absolute bomb. I will pretty much listen to anything he reads.. that is what brought me to vampire earth.
Did Baltic Gambit inspire you to do anything?
not buy another E.E. Knight book.
