Twice before, mysterious cosmic catastrophes have sent portions of the Earth across space and back in time. Now, the planet is struck with yet another such cataclysm, whose direct impact falls upon the Queen of the Sea, a cruise ship in the Caribbean. When the convulsions subside, the crew and passengers of the ship discover that they have arrived in a new and frightening world. They are in the Mediterranean now, not the Caribbean. Still worse, they discover that the disaster has sent them more than two thousand years back in time, into what will become known as the Hellenistic Period. It is a time in which Greek civilization spreads around the Mediterranean and beyond. It is a time of chaos. A time of civil war. A time of bloodshed. This is the new world in which the Queen of the Sea finds itself. Can Marie Easley and Captain Lars Flodden guide the crew and passengers through this cataclysm? Fortunately, they have some help: a young Norwegian ship’s officer who forms an attachment to Alexander’s widow; a French officer who is a champion pistol marksman; a canny Congressman from Utah—and, most of all, many people of the time who are drawn to a vision of the better world of the future.

"Ring of Fire"/1631 meets the fall of Alexander's empire.

Quibble - I really wish they had spent more time on describing the rapid-fire steam powered slug catapults.

Modern folks messing up the economy by adamantly refusing to allow slaves in their newfound areas of influence.

More politics and romance..and less engineering than most of the Ring of Fire books.
Still - a lot of fun!
