Sobre El Autor

Eric Flint was born in southern California in 1947. He received a bachelor's degree from UCLA in 1968 and did some work toward a Ph.D. in history, with a specialization in history of southern Africa in the 18th and early 19th centuries, also at UCLA. After leaving the doctoral program over mostrar más political issues, he supported himself from that time until age 50 as a laborer, machinist and labor organizer. In 1993, his short story entitled Entropy and the Strangler won first place in the Winter 1992 Writers of the Future contest. His first novel, Mother of Demons, was published in 1997 and was picked by the Science Fiction Chronicle as a best novel of the year. He became a full-time writer in 1999. He writes science fiction and fantasy works including The Philosophical Strangler and the Belisarius series. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

This is the second book in the Ring of Fire series. The first book, 1632, begins with the mysterious transport of a small town in present-day West Virginia back to Germany in the middle of the Thirty Years War. After suspending my disbelief, I found the story to be surprisingly good with a fun cast of characters.

The second book in the series picks up where the first book ended and shows the Americans sending their diplomats to France, England, Scotland, and the Netherlands. This provides the reader with a wide overview of the worldwide events during the period of the Thirty Years War. Of course the events depart from the actual history we know but the author cleverly describes the original history and explains the differences that their time travel have caused.

This second book develops many of the characters who remain very entertaining. The book can be recommended for people who enjoy reading alternate history fiction but also for history buffs that already know something about the Thirty Years War.

Mostly diplomatic and spy related story that moves the overall conflict towards a conclusion, at least for this arc of the series. A few battles, but not as detailed as in the main Honor books.

If you want a summarized plot that moves along, and don't really care about characters, this one's for you

Positioned nicely to create a successful 1632 spinoff.

Stereotypical start and quite predictable. However, the integration of modern technology with the matrilineal model of local societies and incipient political processes are beginning to drive the storyline nicely. It should have enough staying power to enable this 1632 sub-series to evolve nicely.
