Review

"Captivating far-future tale of life in space."


"An intriguing vehicle for exploring interstellar fundamentalism."


"Compelling..Readers who like both hard science and realistic sociology will be rewarded."

Praise for "The Eternity Artifact" " A glorious space opera set in a distant future when humans spread to the stars and splintered into a number of subsidiary civilizations. . . .Very enjoyable, lots of sense of wonder, and I even liked the characters." --"Chronicle"
" Captivating far-future tale of life in space, from the author of "Flash," . . .Modesitt's prose is lively, and there's enough sense of wonder here to satisfy even the most jaded. . . .A must-read for Modesitt fans, as well as those of Jack McDevitt and Arthur C. Clarke." - "Kirkus," starred review
" An intriguing vehicle for exploring interstellar fundamentalism." - "Entertainment Weekly"

This stand-alone novel addresses relevant political and economic issues within the framework of rip-roaring space adventure, making it a must-read for fans of interstellar fiction." - "Romantic Times Bookclub Magazine"
" Modesitt's storytelling and characterization are as good as ever, and his use of four first-person viewpoints is quite effective." --"Booklist"
" Superior science-fiction adventure writing. The plot moves compellingly, the characters are distinct and idenitifiable." - "Science Fiction Weekly"
"This is hard science and "really" hardball politics described by somebody who knows them from the inside out. A powerful novel on a sweeping, mysterious stage."--Dave Drake, Author of "The Way to Glory"
"L. E. Modesitt is one of those special authors who brings agreat deal to his work: a love of words, an understanding of people and cultures, and an interest in great stories and ideas.
