Powerful and Epic SF with rich characterisation. One to watch for in upcoming genre award lists. The discovery of a strange artefact lauches a story that spans two different eras and leads to unbelievable changes in the lives of its characters.
1999, on the threshold of a new millennium, the novelist Daniel Langham lives a reclusive life on an idyllic Greek island, hiding away from humanity and the events of the past. All that changes, however, when he meets artist Caroline Platt and finds himself falling in love. But what is his secret, and what are the horrors that haunt him? 1935. Writer Jonathon Langham and Edward Vaughan are summoned from London by their editor friend Jasper Carnegie to help investigate strange goings on in Hopton Wood. What they discover there – no less than a strange creature from another world – will change their lives for ever. What they become, and their link to the novelist of the future, is the subject of Eric Brown’s most ambitious novel to date. Almost ten years in the writing, The Kings of Eternity is a novel of vast scope and depth, full of the staple tropes of the genre and yet imbued with humanity and characters you’ll come to love.

The novel segued into a sci-fi romance (non-gushy type) story with some of the lead characters trying to deal with the problems of immortality and encountering an alien race. The author's writing style moves at a comfortable pace. ------- Leonard
