It is the year 1636. The United States of Europe, the new nation formed by an alliance between the Swedish king Gustavus Adolphus and the West Virginians hurled back in time by a cosmic accident, is on the verge of civil war. His brain injured in the war with Poland, the USE's emperor Gustavus Adolphus is no longer in command. Enter Swedish chancellor Oxenstierna, a leader of aristocratic reaction against democracy. His goal: to assemble the forces of the hidebound ruling class in Berlin and drown the revolution in a bloodbath.

These authors make the new world of 1636 come alive with believable characters. Not all of them are directly involved in the making or breaking of this world but all of them are very human with very human strengths and weaknesses. Just like real life, not every story has a happy ending. I am looking forward to the next installment of this series.
