Review Quotes:

"A mesmerizing tale of human perseverance and courage under pressure that updates the legend of the Flying Dutchman." —Library Journal

"True love, cognitive dissonance, divisions among the enemy, ambitious schemes, another mission—this one deeper than anyone has ever gone before into the substrata of the Flux—and a final resolution that leaves the reader both breathless and satisfied." —Analog SF

"Carver never runs out of new plot twists to keep the reader coming back for more." —The Washington Post

"Jeff Carver's Eternity's End is a fast-moving high-space epic of complex intrigue, desperate action, and romantic love, set in the daringly imagined far-future universe of his more-than-human star-riggers and the cosmic flux where they fly." —Jack Williamson, author of Terraforming Earth

"One of the few hard SF writers whose characters are as interesting as the deep science." —Melissa Scott, author of Dreamships and Trouble and Her Friends

"High adventure in the wonder-filled depths of space with characters you'll remember long after you finish reading the last page." —Joan D. Vinge, author of The Snow Queen

"If you think by reading Kim Stanley Robinson and Stephen Baxter and Greg Egan that you're catching all the best in current hard SF, you're not: Carver belongs not just on that list, but at the front of it." —Robert J. Sawyer, author of Flashforward and The WWW Trilogy
