"The Age of Eternal Fire moves at a breakneck pace. Each chapter presents a new adventure or obstacle for Etok, a device that keeps readers turning the pages. Shelton deftly creates a culture alien to our own, yet one where the familiar values of love, friendship, and bravery prevail." --ForeWord Clarion Review
