DUTTON ADULT | September 16, 2014 | Hardcover

Not yet rated | write a review
EDGE OF ETERNITY is the sweeping, passionate conclusion to Ken Follett's extraordinary historical epic, The Century Trilogy.
 
Throughout these books, Follett has followed the fortunes of five intertwined families – American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh – as they make their way through the twentieth century. Now they come to one of the most tumultuous eras of all: the enormous social, political, and economic turmoil of the 1960s through the 1990s, from civil rights, assassinations, mass political movements and Vietnam to the Berlin Wall, the Cuban Missile Crisis, presidential impeachment, revolution – and rock and roll.
 
East German teacher Rebecca Hoffman discovers she's been spied on by the Stasi for years and commits an impulsive act that will affect her family for the rest of their lives.…George Jakes, the child of a mixed-race couple, bypasses a corporate law career to join Robert F. Kennedy's Justice Department, and finds himself in the middle not only of the seminal events of the civil rights battle, but a much more personal battle of his own.…Cameron Dewar, the grandson of a senator,  jumps at the chance to do some official and unofficial espionage for a cause he believes in, only to discover that the world is a much more dangerous place than he'd imagined.…Dimka Dvorkin, a young aide to Nikita Khrushchev, becomes a prime agent both for good and for ill as the United States and the Soviet Union race to the brink of nuclear war, while his twin sister, Tania, carves out a role that will take her from Moscow to Cuba to Prague to Warsaw – and into history.  
 
As always with Follett, the historical background is brilliantly researched and rendered, the action fast-moving, the characters rich in nuance and emotion. With the hand of a master, he brings us into a world we thought we knew but now will never seem the same again.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Fall of Giants
 
"Just as potent, engrossing, and prolix as the opening opus, Fall of Giants. [Follett's] dedication and ability to keep so many plots spinning while delivering a story that educates, entertains…Will leave fans eagerly awaiting the trilogy's crowning capstone."
-Publishers Weekly
 
"It's a book that will suck you in, consume you for days or weeks… then let you out the other side both entertained and educated."
- USA Today
 
"Meticulously researched and deftly weaves together historical fact, fictional characters and engrossing storytelling."
- Associated Press
 
"A tireless storyteller...grippingly told, and readable to the end."
-The New York Times Book Review
 
"Suspenseful, tightly constructed, sharply characterized, plot-driven...some of the biggest-picture fiction being written today."
-The Seattle Times
 
"Tantalizing"
-Newsday
 
"Lively and entertaining."
-The Washington Post
 
"Epic yarns in prose"
-The Wall Street Journal
