Kirov Series fans are in for a nice surprise. Between the opening volumes of his new Fantasy series, author John Schettler has also been secretly working on an Encore Volume for the Kirov Series!

   Fedorov misses his Tuesday Discord call with Karpov when he receives an alarming warning from Director Kamenski and must leave his hotel in Moscow to seek refuge in a safe house. Yet Karpov, fearing the worst, hitches a ride to Moscow on a cargo plane to look for his friend

  The news Kamenski brings is disturbing, but a plan is hatched to try and prevent the arrival of the Skeletal “Ice Men” that were first discovered in Antarctica. Now Fedorov and Karpov accept a new mission that will take them to familiar far flung places on the earth to lay an ambush for the Skeletals. Can they save the distant future of the Meridian they fought so hard to preserve? Can they help prevent the Grand Finality with the coming of the Murder Hornets?

   Fedorov also learns a change has altered the outcome of the war in 2025-26 and Kirov sorties to investigate and set things right. Later, a chance encounter at Ilanskiy reveals that another Ivan Volkov has appeared on the scene, and he brings a new challenge to  Karpov, in more than one way. The mighty Kirov sorties again to settle affairs with Volkov one last time.

“Just when I think I’m out, they pull me back in!”

- Michael Corleone

Written to allow new readers to enter the series here, the Next War Presented in seasons 6 and 7, tells the story of what would have happened to Kirov if it had not shifted to the past. Instead, Karpov and Fedorov find themselves embroiled in the outbreak of WWIII in 2021. The volumes of the Next War also function as a prelude to the main 40 book Kirov Series, so new readers can start in Season 6 with Homecoming if they prefer modern naval combat

The Next War segment of the Kirov Series will cover all theaters of the war including: Arctic, Norway, Europe & the Atlantic, Taiwan, Korea, East and South China Seas, The Black Sea, Indian Ocean, and more! This is exciting WWIII action presenting the war at a depth never done before, on land, and on, above, and under the seas. All Naval /Air battle outcomes were extensively simulated in scenarios designed by the author utilizing the award winning software Command, Modern Naval Air Operations, presently used by the US Military as a training tool.

The Kirov Series is a masterpiece, by a master story teller in love with this history. The author presents a world as real and visceral as the war he is writing about, and when that history alters in the whirlwind of Kirov’s many battles, the outcomes are completely convincing... This series sets a new standard for alternate history military fiction that is simply unsurpassed. Its scale and scope is simply awesome! ...”

“Every book, every volume you see here, has a soul. The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and lived and dreamed with it. Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens.”
