Description


#23 in the multiple New York Times best-selling Ring of Fire series created by Eric Flint. After carving a free state for itself in war-torn 17th century Europe, citizens of the modern town of Grantville, West Virginia go on a quest for the makings of medicines that have yet to be invented in 17th century Europe.

The United States of Europe—the new nation formed by an alliance between the Swedish king and the West Virginians hurled back in time by a cosmic accident—is beset by enemies on all sides. What's more, the U.S.E. needs a reliable source of opiates for those wounded in action, as well as other goods not available in Europe.

Prime Minister Mike Stearns sends a mission to the Mughal Empire of India hoping to secure a trade deal with the Mughal emperor. Instead they find an empire on the brink of war, danger lurking around every corner, and the beautiful and shrewd daughter of an emperor who may be the key to success—or a bringer of disaster.

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.

Griffin Barber spent his youth in four different countries, learning three languages, and burning all his bridges. Finally settled in Northern California with a day job as a police officer in a major metropolitan department, he lives the good life with his lovely wife, crazy-smart daughter, needy dog, and indifferent cat.  He is the author, with Eric Flint, of 1636: Mission to the Mughals and 1637: The Peacock Throne.
