Manhattan Book Review: Eternal Shadow by Trevor B. Williams

eternal_shadow_fall_of_gods

My latest review for the Manhattan Book Review is of Trevor Williams’ debut novel Eternal Shadow, a work hard science fiction.

Williams doesn’t present readers with fantasy but rather leans towards hard sci-fi, concerned more with what could possibly be scientifically achieved than what would be “cool” to read about. In this way, the novel retains realism as it explores and presents its incredible story. We watch as politics (both local and global) influence decisions over a ten-year span. The characters wrestle with pragmatics and practicalities, rarely ever-spinning off into fantasy, making the novel feel genuine. However, sci-fi lovers will get glimpses of a mysterious alien civilization as well as meaningful effects of AI (artificial intelligence).
