Five hundred years ago, a group of Spanish conquistadors searching for gold, led by a young and brilliant commander named Simon De Oliveras, land in the New World. What they find in the sunny and humid swamps of this uncharted land is a treasure far more valuable: the Fountain of Youth. The Spaniards slaughter the Uzita, the Native American tribe who guard the precious waters that will keep the conquistadors young for centuries. But one escapes: Shako, the chief's fierce and beautiful daughter, who swears to avenge her people--a blood oath that spans more than five centuries. . .

For help, they turn to David Robinton, a scientific prodigy who believes he is on the verge of the greatest medical breakthrough of all time. But as the centuries-old war between Shako and Simon reaches its final stages, David makes a horrifying discovery about his employers and the mysterious and exotic woman he loves.

Review:

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 . . . entertainingly explores the border where science fantasy meets reality. --Kirkus Reviews"

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""

Excellent fantasy thriller . . . The realistic approach is one of this inventive novel s major strengths. --Publishers Weekly (starred review)"
