About the Author
Eric Flint was the creator of the New York Times best-selling Ring of Fire series, the best-selling alternate history series of all time. Beginning with 1632, Flint--along with dozens of cowriters--chronicled what happened when the 20th-century town of Grantville, West Virginia, was transported through time and space to 17th-century Europe. In addition, Flint was the author, with New York Times best seller David Weber, of the Crown of Slaves Saga, as well as the Belisaurius series, with best-selling author David Drake. Flint was the editor of Jim Baen's Universe, as well as numerous short story anthologies. Before becoming a writer, Flint worked as a trade union organizer, longshoreman, truck driver, auto worker, steel worker, oil worker, meatpacker, glassblower, and machinist. Eric Flint passed away in 2022. Dave Freer is an ichthyologist turned author who lives on Flinders Island (between mainland Australia and Tasmania) with his wife, four dogs and four cats, and two sons. He has coauthored a range of novels with Eric Flint (Rats, Bats and Vats, The Rats, the Bats and the Ugly, Pyramid Scheme, Pyramid Power, and Slow Train to Arcturus), with Mercedes Lackey and Eric Flint (The Shadow of the Lion, This Rough Magic, The Wizard of Karres, Much Fall of Blood, Burdens of the Dead, and Freer's solo entry in the series, A Mankind Witch) as well as writing the Dragon's Ring fantasy novels Dragon's Ring and Dog and Dragon.
Reviews
"The prolific Lackey and cohorts Flint and Freer whip up a luscious bouillabaisse of politics, intrigue, love and black magic. . . . The authors' use of contemporary American vernacular . . . keeps the pages turning fast. . . ."
"[A] massive concoction of alternate history, high fantasy, and historical romance . . . rich plotting, vivid characterization, and splendid evocation of Renaissance ethics and culture should make readers turn all the pages."
." . . a sweeping alternate history. . . . The authors deftly wield the juxtaposition of fantasy and history into a finely crafted story."
"[A] top pick . . . fast-paced action and complex, believable settings."
"A luscious bouillabaisse of alternate history, high fantasy, and historical romance."
