Producing "spin-off" anthologies as part of a popular series has a long and venerable history in science fiction, of course. But, in at least two respects, this anthology is different from most such-and the two differences are related.

The 1632 series, also known as the 1632-verse or Ring of Fire series, is an alternate history book series and sub-series created, primarily co-written, and coordinated by Eric Flint and published by Baen Books. The series is set in 17th-century Europe, in which the small fictional town of Grantville, West Virginia, in the year 2000 was sent to the past in central Germany in the year 1631, during the Thirty Years' War.

Fascinating idea for plot. Very imaginative and intriguing. Unfortunately . . . the characters are stereotypes. They speak in cliches. Their internal musings are often clumsy plot exposition. The author does, though, understand the conventions of English spelling and grammar, so there are no distractions in those areas. The author simply needs to devote more time to realistic character development.

I love this series. I'm old enough to have read 1632 when it was a stand alone book, and have loved it's growing into this weird re-write of history. I am also interested in the history of religion and how it relates to political history. This book continues the 1632 series tradition of including the history of people of all classes in the story. It is not just the history of "Great Men". Ruy would not have made it into such a history except as a footnote, but without him Europe would have been much poorer. Every character grows and shows throughout this wonderful novel.

I loved this book. However, I think there are a fair number of people who would not enjoy it quite as much. First of all this book takes place soon after, and following the same characters as, 1634 The Galileo Affair. There is a lot of Catholic church history given and like most of these books is a little slow for the first half of the book. It does set the stage to understand the political implications of the end of this book as well as 1635 The Papal Stakes. Personally I found the insight into this part of history, mixed with the lively fiction of this great series to be thoroughly enjoyable.

I have greatly enjoyed the RING OF FIRE series begun by Eric Flint. I enjoyed this one as well but it has been the least enjoyable one so far. It was readable and sometimes interesting but it did not keep me reading when I should have been doing other things.

The story takes place in Rome. The USE embassy has been accredited but is just barely tolerated. They have no real contact with the Vatican in any official capacity. Also come to Rome are some members of the Committee of Correspondence. They are taking the subtle approach and not being too flagrant in their activities. The USE ambassador is preparing to get married. It should all be fairly peaceful but that is not the case.

Cardinal Borja from Spain is still ticked off over the incidents from THE GALLILEO AFFAIR. He is also dumb and arrogant and want to be pope himself. He sets in to motion a plan for a coup which will leave the Holy See in Spanish (his) hands. It is a power grab pure and simple.

Much of this book will not make much sense if one has not already read the others in the series. I suspect that much the same can be said of this review as well. It is worth reading primarily because subsequent books will almost certainly build upon this one.

This series is highly recommended. And as a Jew, I'm shocked at how 'right' he has got the Jewish characters both of the 17th and early 21st C.
I LOVE this series.

Great subject but someone needs to edit these books better. Writing styles for this series need to be standardized. Bullets between different conversations.

Masterful storytelling. But I'd expect no less from Mr. Flint.
This volume picks up the plot line where the *Galileo Affair* left off. The principal players are young Frank Stone, his lovely young wife Giovanna (ex-Marcolli), Sharon Nichols, and the irrascable Ruy Sanchez. The *bad guys*, Cardinal Borjas and a lengthy cast of characters are seeking to neutralize pope Urban VIII, due to his acceptance of the USE and the *foreighn witches* from Grantville.

The first half of the book nearly put me off from finishing--lots of plotting in the back rooms. Conspiracy! But as time progressed, we find that the simple deposition of the pope by a political process was not to be! A violent plot to murder the pope and his supporters unfolds in a burst of exciting action. Ruy Sanchez, the new husband of Sharon Niichols, and Tom Simpson aid in rescuing the pope and providing political asylum. Much better, overall, than *The Galileo Affair*, which I felt was pretty contrived. A solid 4 stars.
