Publisher's Summary

The stunning, critically-acclaimed follow-up to best-selling The Quantum Magician

The Ultimate Chase

Days ago, Belisarius pulled off the most audacious con job in history. He's rich, he's back with the love of his life, and best of all, he has the Time Gates, arguably the most valuable things in existence. Nothing could spoil this...except the utter destruction of his people and the world they lived on. 

To save them, he has to make a new deal with the boss he just double-crossed, to travel back in time and work his quantum magic once again, tracking down the source of the wormholes. 

If he can avoid detection, dodge paradox, and stay ahead of the eerie, relentless Scarecrow, he might just get back to his own time alive.

Another trippy trip with the Homo Quantus

Derek Kunsken universe of tomorrow has some pretty unique characters in it as introduced in book 1, Quantum Garden picks up where the Quantum Magician left off , this time Belisarius has to make amends with the Union forces for stealing their ship. while saving the Homo Quantus from enemy forces that what to eradicate them or use them for their incredible gifts. Quantum Garden is not quite the exciting caper that the Quantum Magician is but it is still a great tale in a universe that I can't get enough of, I will be looking forward to the next chapter in the adventures of Belisarius and his team of universal misfits

Sci fi at its very best!

Quantum Garden is brilliant speculative science fiction grounded in a fun,well paced story, all wrapped up with characters I found myself caring very much about. The story, in its own right is a lot of fun, bringing out straight up belly laughs or tears on multiple occasions. Derek presents, at least for me, some pretty heavy science and philosophy in a very accessible way. The questions raised in the book, philosophically, scientifically, ethically and, even theologically were done in a way that left me both devastated and hopefully at the same time. Throughout I never felt preached at once; rather I felt trusted enough to be invited into an intimate and deep contemplation of the ideas and possibilities presented through the story.

As for the reader, T. Ryder Smith is absolutely brilliant in both this and the first book of the series! He freakin knocks it out of the park!

These two put together have produced an audio read that should be seriously consider for multiple awards. I cannot recommend this book enough!

time bending quantum mechanics

inside a 22 dimensional space if you rotate and properly you literally turn yourself into antimatter.

the well-developed characters from the first book are sent on a time-bending romp which both moves the world's story forward and is also an absolutely delicious exploration of causality. if a species' consciousness exists mapped out across gene through over time does its potential own understanding of its Extinction mean it wants you to kill it to rescue it? yep.

WOW and HOLY CRAP!!

Great book, great story! Good news, Stills is back. The storyline is very interesting and holds your attention. It has a whole bunch of "I didn't see that coming" followed with "how is he gonna get us through this with only x time left on the book?!" also a huge bonus for me was a whole lot of sci fi aspect without one single space battle, I mean I've heard/read a lot of space battles and I seem to be growing tired of them (unless of course, you get Stills narrative with T Ryder Smith) which by the way T Ryder Smith may be the best Audio performer out there, He can do Men and Women equally well, FANTASTIC range, but his Scarecrow will make your neck hairs stand up. Many thanks again Derek for another well thought out, exciting ride, I almost feel I owe you another credit for this one and can't wait for the next, Please don't make it a trilogy (needs to be a series) I could follow Bell all the way to Bootes void and back. As always please click on my name to ensure this is a genuine review. I give honest feedback.

great story, fun continuation of the first

I love the world building setup by the first and followed through with this one.
My only complaint is in the editing of the reading, you can hear some page turning and gulping from the narrator which was sorta distracting, but his voices are still top notch.

Love the world, but too short!

This series has a lot of potential. The narrator was great although I swear I could hear him drink water a few times. Hope Kunsken comes out with another one soon.

Amazing

2nd novel is as good as any in the sci fi realm, we’ll developed good and evil characters, interesting motives and plot: humans with quantum powers. A new niche in sci fi, we’ll written by Kunsken and we’ll read by TRS! Loved it and I’ve read around 150 SF titles.
