L. E. Modesitt, Jr's first major work was a trilogy of SF adventure novels published as paperback originals in the 1980s: Dawn for a Distant Earth, The Silent Warrior, and In Endless Twilight. Together they form The Forever Hero.

Thousands of years in the future, Earth is a desolate ruin. The first human ship to return in millennia discovers an abandoned wasteland inhabited only by a few degenerate or mutated human outcasts. But among them is a boy of immense native intelligence and determination who is captured, taken in, and educated, and disappears--to grow up to become the force behind a plan to make Earth flower again. He is, if not immortal, at least very long-lived, and he plans to build an independent power base out in the galaxy and force the galactic empire to devote centuries and immense resources to the restoration of the ecology of Earth.

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

The Forever Hero

Forever Hero
August 17th, 2015
In this trilogy is a tale or of time and through time until moments become somehow more than they are, memory becomes tangled, and an instant translates to forever. Blending excitement with romance, science with philosophy, the surgery weaves a story that leaves the reader spellbound at times, and looking shears for more. Character development is such that the reader senses that she knows the hero - certainly as other characters in the books know him, but also as a member of the family. Several times I found myself laughing aloud, racing through page after page, savouring indiviso sentences and words, the even weeping at the sense of loss experienced by the protagonist.

A quite good read. Sometimes seemed to go on forever, but I enjoyed it.
