Once in a great while, a science-fiction book comes along that creates a vivid, utterly believable world, the literary equivalent of a pulsar. This is one of those books.

Author Joe Dacy II review of The Eternal Front

5/5 stars

Best SF I’ve read all year… a richly textured, vivid, insanely readable story of interstellar cultures colliding and ordinary people struggling to be themselves amidst the horrors of a far-future war that may be on the edge of a genocidal resolution.

5/5 stars

“The Eternal Front” is science fiction of the highest caliber. Blaire’s detailed consideration of two races, one twisted away from some human characteristics while retaining others, allows us to contemplate what it means to be human—the essence of enduring literature.

Blair does an amazing job of building a world surrounding an eternal war while bringing the Tachba and Haphan to life. … It’s the rare author who can make me really care about imaginary people they invented. Blair does the job. On to next book!
