No other series i have read, including Star Carrier series has done this.
I was eagerly turning the pages to see what happened to Karpov, when bam!, the book ended.
1) This book is more metaphysical than others in series. Makes you think a lot more. Some passages i had to read twice to understand what the author was conveying.
2) The idea that a second Kirov had landed, and Mother Time was placing the first one in Purgatory to avoid a clash was expected as author indicated. Still was a surprise how it was handled. Kudos to author.
3) I can feel Tovey's anguish and suspense as to how the new & yet old Kirov will handle itself, knowing fully well the contents of his diaries in an alternate timeline. Tovey's character can be developed better. When i met him during the first of the revised series, his emotions were displayed more clearly.
4) Fedorov as a free radical is stunning, although expected.
5) What happened to the Submarines? Suspense.
6) What happened to the Japanese, whose fearsome battleship battled with Kirov?
7) How will the Soviet union battle the Wehrmacht this time, since all the cream of good officers still exist and are an equal match?
8) The way Hindenburg quietly went away without battling is a let down. Especially after the HUGE build-up the author gave.
Leaves still a lot of questions unanswered and i dearly hope to see the Germans bring one of their missiles against Kirov or the other new ships. Just for fun.
The books are becoming tedious and Doppelganger doesn't move the story line forward much. Maybe Schettler is trying to make this series his cash cow like the 'Game of Thrones' tv series.
This series really hits it's stride in volume 17!
