The stunning follow-up to the best-selling, critically-acclaimed The Quantum Magician by Derek Künsken.
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.
A Note From the Publisher
The Quantum Garden is the highly anticipated sequel to Derek Künsken's BSFA, Locus, and Sunburst award-shortlisted first book The Quantum Magician.
PRAISE FOR THE QUANTUM MAGICIAN (Book One)
“A boldly ambitious debut.”
“An audacious con job, scintillating future technology, and meditations on the nature of fractured humanity.” Yoon Ha Lee
“Künsken has a wonderfully ingenious imagination.” Adam Roberts, Locus
“Technology changes us—even our bodies—in fundamental ways, and Künsken handles this wonderfully.”
“I have no problems raving about this book. A truly wild backdrop of space-opera with wormholes, big space-fleet conflict and empires.... What could go wrong?”
Brad K. Horner
“This brainy sci-fi heist novel uses mathematics like magic to pull you through a caper worthy of Jean-Pierre Melville.”
The B&N SciFi and Fantasy Blog
“The Quantum Magician is the type of book you go back to the beginning and read again once you know how everything pans out and have those ‘why didn’t I see that the first time?’ moments.”
“Con games and heists are always hard to write – one like this, which comes out pitch perfect, wrapped in a nuanced and striking sci-fi narrative is, to say the least, a rarity.”
SF and F Reviews
“It hits all the right beats at the right time, and part of the fun in reading it is wondering: what will go wrong? Who will betray who? What will be the reversals? When done well, as in the case of The Quantum Magician, it’s a delight to read.”
