SEASON 7: The Next War -2025 and Beyond...

The Season begins as Karpov and Fedorov shift  to the year 2025 and find themselves in the future that arose from their many interventions in the past. The world of Altered States prevails, and already controlling Taiwan  and Korea,  China is a dangerous adversary in the Pacific, but Siberia has allied with the United States. So Kirov joins the Royal Navy and USN in the struggle to contain the enormous rising strength of China, which has strong client states in Iraq, Iran and North Africa.

All volumes in this final season will feature the main character set, and Kirov, with appearances by the Fairchild Group, Ivan Gromyko on Kazan, and Admiral Kita’s task force. With the emergence of advanced weapons like lasers and rail guns, the war presents a chilling harbinger of what might lie ahead in our own time.

For New Readers:

As the entire series is a great loop in time, the Kirov Series can be read beginning with either with book 1 for the journey to the past and Kirov’s intervention in WWII, or beginning with book 41, for the story of what would have happened to the ship if it had not shifted back in time, in effect, the story of Kirov in WWIII.
