This review is from: The Kings of Eternity (Paperback)
This starts out really well with an opening chapter that HG Wells would be proud of. Alien contact in Victorian England. The narrative flips between nearly present day and the Victorian era and the writing style cleverly changes with this. The Victorian sections actually feel as though they were written in this era!
The problem is this flips in the middle and switches from an adventure type story into a a gentle pastoral treatise on immortality. Whilst very well written and engaging it feels like two different books. If I had known what the second half would be like I would not have started it.
