Book Description

10 Jun 2014 Ring of Fire (Book 14)
Continuing the New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling, alternate history Ring of Fire series created by Eric Flint! Eddie Cantrell, now married to the king of Denmark's daughter, is sent by Admiral Simpson to the Caribbean to secure access to the most valuable commodity on that continent - not the gold and silver which the Spanish treasure, but the oil which up-time machines and industry need. But Cantrell's plans could be wrecked in a multitude of ways. He faces often-hostile natives, rambunctious Dutch ship captains, allied colonies on the brink of starvation, and vicious social infighting that can barely be contained by his capable and passionate new wife.

1.0 out of 5 stars very disappointing 11 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Just a rambling tale. Not a particularly good story.
Lots of characters with long names and bits that seemed out of place. I don't think I will follow any further in these tales

I read most of the books in the series. I think it's a clever idea because the 17th century was the beginning of scientific enquiry.

2.0 out of 5 stars Editor, editor! 8 July 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I followed Eric Flint from 1632 , and I feel that the latest addition to the series are not up to ,snuff. 609 pages that could have been edited to 400 esaily. a good series is about to be complitly ruined for the lack of an editor. I dont Think i will be buying any more of Flints books, not until a number of reviews shows 5 stars, and a positiv reader comment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Back to Form! 26 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Ring of Fire series has been a bit iffy the past couple of books, lots of concentration on intrigue and politics. This one is right back to where it started - adventure and high drama. I thoroughly recommend it...
