There is a secret passage through time

...and it leads all the way to the end of Eternity. But the journey has a terrible cost. It alters not only the future but he "present" in which we live.

Wells' immortal The Time Machine, Stephen Baxter, today's most acclaimed new "hard SF" author, and the acknowledged Clarke, returns to the distant conflict between the Eloi and the Morlocks in a story that is at once an exciting expansion, and a radical departure based on the astonishing new understandings of quantum physics.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fitting title Enjoyed the scope of story and the language used. The two main characters are well chosen such that the reader is educated on the science behind the plot while at the same time holding ones attention with an exciting story line. Thoroughly enjoyed reading the book.
