A powerful, imaginative novel. "Library Journal on Eon" Bear pictures Axis City, and everything else for that matter, with astonishing clarity....Bear's grasp is unfaltering, his control over the ramifying implications of his tale nearly perfect...."Eon" may be the best constructed hard sf epic yet. "Washington Post Book World on Eon" The only word for it really is blockbuster....it is big and breathtaking; the story and the concepts are ambitious to the point of mind boggling. "Isaac Asimov's SF Magazine on Eon"" --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.
Sequel to the classic space opera EON - a groundbreaking SF classic. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.See all Product Description

This fitting and perfect sequel leads you on an enthralling, wondrous, mesmerising journey keeping you engaged in the story with every word and every page. A truly grand and visionary work, I personally view it as "Eon - part 2"!!!! If you haven't, you simply must read this work from an exceptional imagination!!!!!!!! Authors like Bear are rare in this world.
As sequels go, it is fluently written and expands on storylines started in the original, after a pause of 40 years book time. However it does not actually contain anything new, at least not in the way a new science fiction novel should tread the threashold of what-might-be. It simply uses all the ideas from volume one, shuffles them, and throws them out in a new order. It's a very good read though, so worth investigating (after reading Eon). The third book in the trilogy is unrelated and unreadable so avoid it.
When i read this book, at one point i had to put it down, because the twist the story takes just took my breath away. BUY IT NOW
I could not put it down, do give it a chance. Eternity

Having read the Eon books it is a pleasure to rediscover them after a few years and still holds my attention :-)Published 16 months ago by Michael McEvoy
As expected a rich and deeply textured story culminating in a climactic end .. It has unfortunately left us hankering after more ... But alas..Published 19 months ago by Amygdala
I really enjoyed this book, it answered a lot of questions, perhaps even more than it left unanswered. I would recommend anyone who has read Eon read Eternity.Published on 18 Jun. 2014 by chrisisreading
It was an ok read i guess, my advice is probably save your money unless someone has recommended it and insists you read it. Rather underwhelming.Published on 9 Feb. 2014 by Raul Endymion
Clearly a follow on novel but fails to make the grade after Eon. I read these years ago and enjoyed them and came back after a science group discussion on science fiction. Read morePublished on 3 May 2013 by Dr I Alexander
Very complex plot lines. Hard to follow at times. It should be read as soon after the first book as possible as it is easy to forget some of the sub plots. Read morePublished on 6 Feb. 2013 by 8ightball
One of the things that makes great science fiction stand out is the big ideas. Eternity is full of big ideas. Read morePublished on 31 Jan. 2013 by M. Brookes
