This is the twelfth book in a series in which a small American town is sent back from around the turn of the millennium to Germany in the middle of the 30 years war. It starts a new story arc set in Russia.

Most of the books in this series are identified with titles which are, or begin with, the 17th century year in which each book starts (e.g. 1632, 1633, etc) and it is sometimes known as the "Ring of Fire" or "Assiti Shards" series. In the case of "1636: the Kremlin Games" the date in the title appears to be that of the climax at the conclusion of the book.

The "Ring of Fire" is how the inhabitants of Grantville described the event which brought their town back 370 years in time and a few thousand miles in space. The Assiti were the race whose thoughtless actions, described in the first book as akin to "criminal negligence," caused that event, though we are told in the first novel in the series that no human will ever learn this.

Some of the books in this series were just written by Eric Flint but most have one or more co-authors such as David Weber. This book has Gorg Huff and Paula Goodlett as co-authors. The books in the series differ greatly in their style and focus, and I gather I am not the only reader who enjoyed some of them very much more than others. Five which I particularly enjoyed and can recommend to others can be read in sequence and give an overview of the history of the very different seventeenth century which Grantville's arrival in Germany in the early 1630's creates in the stories.

Eric Flint himselves describes these same five books as the "Main line" or spinal cord of the series to date in the afterword to this volume.

well, a new thread in 163x saga. It might very well ha started in the Grantvill express, but i find that this novel stand on its own merits. The story rolls on, and one can only wonder if its a two or three book sequel. A fairly good set of maps and a list of persons make it a better treat. That it does nor have any trace of Virgina DeMarce only makes it better !
The reading was easy the plot good so I can recomend this novel warmly.

Although I'm a great fan of the Ring of Fire series I've found the more recent offerings to be a bit laboured: this one, however, is back to the best. A Vibrant, amusing story with wonderful cross cultural/ cross time misunderstandings.
