"NEW ENTRY IN THE NEW YORK TIMES BEST-SELLING, GENRE-DEFINING ALTERNATE HISTORY SERIES. It's been five years since a cosmic incident known as The Ring of Fire transported the modern day town of Grantville, West Virginia, through time and space to 17th century Europe. The course of world history has been forever altered. And Mother Russia is no exception. Inspired by the American up-timers' radical notion that all people are created equal, Russian serfs are rebelling. The entire village of Poltz, led by blacksmith Stefan Andreevich, pulls up stakes to make a run for freedom. Meanwhile, Czar Mikhail has escaped house arrest, with the aid of up-time car mechanic Bernie Zeppi, his Russian associates--and a zeppelin. The czar makes his way to the village of Ufa. There he intends to set up a government-in-exile. It is to Ufa that the serfs of Poltz are heading, as well. The path is dangerous--for the serfs as well as the czar. They face great distances and highwaymen. But the worst threat are those in the aristocracy who seek to crush the serfs and execute the czar in a bid to drive any hope for Russian freedom under their Parisian-crafted boot heels. But the Russians of 1637 have taken inspiration from their up-timer counterparts. And it could be that a new wind of liberty is about to blow three centuries early--and change Mother Russia forever.

Life is hard in Russia with all the turmoil from the Czar's flight. Looks like they are headed toward a federation. ( )

Lots of moving parts in this episode, all with Russian surnames including a smith AKA Stefan Andreevich. The balls are juggled nicely as this story of class and technology differences evolves to add the vastness of eastern Europe to the Assitti Shards Epic. The slow pace of action required by the inadequacies of transport option is adroitly handled by a vignette style of writing that changes locals and casts frequently. This book is a solid addition to the outstanding "Ring of Fire" world created by Eric Flint. ( )

The sequel to The Kremlin Games and the serfs are rebelling, many heading for Ufa where Czar Mikhail is trying to establish a new capital and a government-in-exile. Will Mother Russia be changed forever? I enjoyed this entry in the series.

Five years after the Ring of Fire, Russia is in the middle of a civil war. The tsar has fled to the east and is gathering loyalists and runaway serfs. The usurper's forces are sending armies to oppose him.

A reasonable entry in this long-running series, but nothing special. ( )
