    " I was surprised by this one. The Rus portrayal was striking accurately done to my limited knowledge. I still have problems disbelieving the social hacks but a good yarn that attracts the attention. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Edie Folta | 12/30/2013

    " The 1632 series is my guilty pleasure. It's an alternative history fiction series based on a West Virginia town being plunked down in Germany in the middle of the 30 Years War. This episode has a plucky young WV slacker who goes to Russia and brings indoor plumbing and hot air balloons. So far. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ron | 11/27/2013

    " This turned out much better than I thought it would. I had read parts before in various Grantville Gazettes and they were OK, but having everything together with the cracks filled in made the tale coherent. Of course, there had to be a cliffhanger ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian | 10/24/2013

    " It's nice to get another book in the series that's not a rambling collection. The books with a tight focus are my favorites. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kurt Weirich | 10/23/2013

    " Enjoyable conclusion to the Kremlin series from the Grantville Gazette but not up to to the caliber of some of the other books in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 10/13/2013

    " You must read it, if you're a fan of the series, this is definitely your book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alvin | 3/25/2013

    " Not up to the usual standard of this series. With the others, especially the main line novels, you get a sense that you are reading a well researched and very well written historical novel, this one however did not. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill | 11/30/2012

    " A close-up of 17th century Russian politics and how the Ring of Fire lays the seeds for an early Russian revolution. Games is an expansion of the Butterflies in the Kremlin stories from the Grantville Gazette ebooks, beginning in volume 8. "
