    I loved this book!

    I love science fiction, especially hard sci-fi! This is a great story! It is so well written. Trevor’s plotting is quite good, combining a first-contact type of story with the potential destruction of the earth provides a white-knuckle ride! The science is quite well done, the scenes are set perfectly. Some of the dialogue is quite funny, I laughed out loud. The earth-bound antagonists, a zealous religious cult is very scary and very real. It is mostly impossible to stop a person willing to die for their cause, except to stop them before they do too much damage. I forward to the next in the series. I award “Eternal Shadow” a score of 5 stars!

    Great hard sci-fi!

    Eternal Shadow is a hard sci-fi novel which tells the story of what happens when the world is under the ultimate threat. The plot moves along through the eyes of several key characters, but captures the larger themes of how humanity responds differently to impending doom. The timeline was surprisingly realistic, and it was fascinating to see how the world shifts in response to a very mysterious and unusual threat. Overall, the whole book was a fun read. I don't normally read hard sci-fi, but I found that this one worked for me! The pace of this novel to be fast enough to keep me engaged, while also being detailed and full of rich technical and descriptive scenes. Williams' character development is on point (especially for this genre) with a nice slow burn with a few surprising twist and turns along the way, and some unexpected emotional moments. One of my favorite things about this book was how it subverted many of the tropes associated with sci-fi and other genre fiction. LGBTQ relationships, diverse characters, and strong female protagonists felt tactful and genuine in their portrayal and enhanced the story without feeling cliché. The book left me feeling hopeful about the future in this universe. Can't wait to see where Williams' takes the story next. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a smart read.
