The Quantum Garden by Derek Künsken

Only available as part of a set, this is a signed, deluxe, limited edition hardcover of book two in The Quantum Evolution series.

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.

Return to The Quantum Evolution Series overview…

Peer & Press Reviews

There’s a tremendous sense of imagination and entertainment in the pacy, exciting plot and, while the Scarecrow is a little under-used (setting things up for the next book, it seems like), the stakes nevertheless feel very real.  Anyone who enjoyed the first book should find plenty to savour here, and after two books all the signs are that this is a series which is going to keep getting better and better.

Michael, Track of Words

I loved the writing style, which was very polished.  Belisarius and Cassie were so well crafted as characters that I soon found myself caring very much about how things worked out for them and admiring just how plucky they were.  And Congregate mongrel pilot Stills was on hand to provide a more laddish feel and lighten the mood just when it was needed.

John C Adams, The British Fantasy Society

The story is exciting and entertaining all the way through: I literally only put this down to go to work… and I stayed up way too late trying to finish it that evening.  Künsken builds on what came before while setting up the tantalizing possibility of more stories, more adventures, more bright ideas.
