Against the all-conquering Grand Duchy of Muscovy, can the city-state of Novgorod save itself from total annihilation and bring the land of the Rus towards the West?

Medieval Russia, 1470: With Muscovy gaining hegemony in the Russian lands, Novgorod is fearful. Having miraculously defeated it in battle, Marta Boretskaya, mayor of Novgorod, needs allies from abroad to help her against Grand Prince Ivan III's wrath and vengeance. She seeks help from Poland-Lithuania. A Lithuanian aristocrat, Prince Olelkovich, offers his hand in marriage to her – with a union between the two countries, Novgorod could hold the tide of the Muscovite barbarians from the east. At the same time, Ivan III is vying for the hand of Sophia Paleogogos, nephew of the last Byzantine emperor, Constantine, in order to strengthen his claim that his land is the new Rome and fight against the Ottoman onslaught in Europe. Red Corner, An Alternate History of Rus, A Novel is a story of murder, intrigue, love, loyalty, and greed set in a time when Russia had yet to be born and was only just beginning to find its national identity.
