I maybe made 3 chapters of progress before deleting this publisher travesty as pure optical torment.
This is what drew most of to the series in the first place, and it's just refreshing to get back to it. No longer are we expected to pay for the opportunity to memorize who is whose third cousin once removed in Grantville.
It's about having fun again.
The principal characters are Bernie Zeppi, a young auto mechanic who is drinking himself into oblivion from PTSD arising from the "Battle of the Crapper," Vladimir Gorchacov, a Russian nobleman who is seeking technical knowledge and confirmation of the Ring of Fire, and Vladimir's lovely sister, Natasha.
Bernie accepts a position as an adviser and sets off to Russia, where to his surprise, he finds a purpose in life. Along the way, he manages to bring Russia out of the dark ages and find a woman to love.
The Czar of all the Russias and Czarina become major characters, as do many smaller role players. This is not a stand-alone novel and leaves the reader in suspense. Overall a very entertaining work by authors Flint, Huff, and Goodlett. Four stars; recommended.
That said the book ends on a cliff hanger where it really should have just wrapped things up.
At this point there is still no railroad (its been five years I expect a railroad)
its the 17th century there are no condoms or birth control pills without antibiotics abortion is far far more dangerous than giving birth and the series as a whole has had all the uptimers screwing women left and right, their bastard children should be making appearances by now.
