Because this sequel is such a direct continuation of events from Book 1 in the series, I recommend reading it quickly after that novel, so that you don't suffer the same confusion I did on returning to the series after many months. Like most of Egan's work, this story is a tribute to the process of scientific discovery, using a few characters and a plot, although only by necessity. Seriously, if you removed all the mathematical and laboratory discussions, you'd only have about 30 pages or so of narrative. Nonetheless, it has interesting ideas and a fairly strong feminist theme, as did "Clockwork Rocket".

"Eternal Flame" is the conclusion of a trilogy about a universe in which light has mass. The physics and biology of this universe are explained in great detail in the context of three stories about different sets of characters. The story ties the physics and biology problems to the lives of the characters in interesting ways. The conclusion of the story is interesting and appropriate. The performance by Adam Epstein is good.
