Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 276 - Duchess of Terra by Glynn Stewart, 1636: The Vatican Sanction by Eric Flint

Duchess of Terra (Duchy of Terra, #2)Duchess of Terra by Glynn Stewart
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a fun series to read. It has great characters, both human and alien, interesting science and a plot that started in book one and continues in book two. The backstory continues to develop and the world building supports the story and is presented as part of the plot. There is danger developing as the book starts and it is taken care of before the book ends. That does not mean there is nothing left for another book. This is a developing story just as the world building continues to develop. There is more to come.

1636: The Vatican Sanction (Ring of Fire #24)1636: The Vatican Sanction by Eric Flint
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This picks up where a previous book left off. Pope Urban is trying to get the different Christian religions together to talk and perhaps stop fighting. There are those who support and those who oppose. That makes the undertaking dangerous. There are several main characters from the first book and many from history. This is a complete story and the reader is the same for all the Ring of Fire books. He does a very good job of the different voices helpings keep the story moving.
