“Farnsworth offers a fantastical witch’s brew of Spanish conquistadors, biotechnology, and hubris… With cinematic pacing and colorful action scenes, Farnsworth blends a unique premise into fun summer reading. Michael Crichton’s gone, but Farnsworth entertainingly explores the border where science fantasy meets reality.” — Kirkus Reviews

“The discovery of the fountain of youth kick-starts this excellent fantasy thriller from Farnsworth… The realistic approach is one of this inventive novel’s major strengths.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“I’ve been a fan of Christopher Farnsworth ever since his first book, and he just keeps getting better. The Eternal World has exactly what I look for in great adventure fiction: a compelling plot, memorable characters, top-notch action scenes, and heart-stopping twists.”  — Boyd Morrison, author of The Ark and, with Clive Cussler, Piranha

“If you’re looking for action and adventure with a supernatural twist, Farnsworth’s your man.”The New York Post

“Farnsworth has blended history, espionage, suspense, science, and even a bit of romance so well that it’s hard to place this novel within a specific genre and even harder to put it down.” — Marcus Hammond, Luxury Reading
