After carving a free state for itself in war-torn 17th century Europe, citizens of the modern town of Grantville, West Virginia go on a quest for the makings of medicines that have yet to be invented in 17th century Europe.
The United States of Europe–the new nation formed by an alliance between the Swedish king and the West Virginians hurled back in time by a cosmic accident–is beset by enemies on all sides.
What’s more, the U.S.E. needs a reliable source of opiates for those wounded in action, as well as other goods not available in Europe.
Prime Minister Mike Stearns sends a mission to the Mughal Empire of India hoping to secure a trade deal with the Mughal emperor. Instead they find an empire on the brink of war, danger lurking around every corner, and the beautiful and shrewd daughter of an emperor who may be the key to success–or a bringer of disaster.
