Worldwar: Tilting the Balance cover Worldwar: Tilting the Balance

Published by Del Ray Books

Reviewed by Leigh Kimmel

World War: Tilting the Balance continues to develop the situation and the characters, putting some of them in very uncomfortable positions. A patriotic Russian woman pilot falls in love with a German panzer officer who is beginning to ask himself uncomfortable questions about just what his nation was doing before the Lizards' invasion. Another character, believing that her husband is dead, marries another man only to have her first husband make it through the lines successfully.

All the time several factions of humanity are racing to develop their own atomic weapons and counter the Lizards' technical edge. This volume ends with a nuclear weapon exploding just outside of Moscow and the Lizard high commander wondering what to do now (which implies that Stalin has succeeded in his Bomb project).

The story continues in Worldwar: Upsetting the Balance.
