Description


ERIC FLINT'S LANDMARK RING OF FIRE SERIES CONTINUES. EXPLORING THE EUROPE STORYLINE BEGAN BY FLINT IN 1637: THE POLISH MAELSTROM.

Up-timer Morris Roth and his Grand Army of the Sunrise stand at a crossroads. Military success against the Polish-Lithuanian magnates has all but guaranteed a continued push east into Ruthenian lands. There, Roth hopes to further his Anaconda Project so that tens of thousands of Jews are not slaughtered in what’s to become known as the Chmielnicki Pogrom of 1648.

An envoy from Transylvania arrives with a promising offer from its prince, who wishes to form an alliance with Bohemia, but the land shrouded in the fog of the Carpathian Mountains—and known only to most up-timers as the playground of Count Dracula—is a vassal state of the Ottoman Empire. Such an alliance would surely draw the ire of Sultan Murad IV.

The United States of Europe agrees to assist the Bohemian forces and sends in the Silesian Guard under the command of Brigadier Jeff Higgins. They also send in Gretchen Richter to organize and lead the political struggle.

Transylvania is thrown into political, social, and religious turmoil as battle lines are drawn. Whatever happens and whoever wins the fight, one thing is certain: the history of Eastern Europe will change radically. In fact, it already has.

Praise for 1636: Calabar’s War:
“. . . dives into the story of . . . Calabar, a Brazilian military adviser [who] juggles helping [the Dutch] in their fight against the Spanish with rescuing his family, who have been sold into slavery.” —Publishers Weekly

Praise for 1635: A Parcel of Rogues:
“The 20th volume in this popular, fast-paced alternative history series follows close on the heels of the events in The Baltic War, picking up with the protagonists in London, including sharpshooter Julie Sims. This time the 20th-century transplants are determined to prevent the rise of Oliver Cromwell and even have the support of King Charles.” —Library Journal

Praise for 1634: The Galileo Affair:
“A rich, complex alternate history with great characters and vivid action. A great read and an excellent book.” —David Drake

“Gripping . . . depicted with power!” —Publishers Weekly

Praise for Eric Flint’s Ring of Fire series:
“This alternate history series is . . . a landmark . . .” —Booklist

“Flint’s 1632 universe seems to be inspiring a whole new crop of gifted alternate historians.” —Booklist

“. . . reads like a techno-thriller set in the age of the Medicis . . .” —Publishers Weekly
