Review of The Quantum Magician (The Quantum Evolution Book 1)

I just finished reading The Quantum Magician (The Quantum Evolution Book 1) by Derek Künsken.📚

Belisarius Adjina is a Homo Quantus, further development of the human species capable of entering a quantum state and able to understand and compute multiple dimensions of the space-time continuum. He also flew from his home planet and is passing his time with confidentiality scams.

He at the beginning of the story, he gets a visit from a Major of a long lost military expedition, tasking him with a new job. The biggest job in his career as a con man. And he starts collecting a team of old colleagues to pull it off.

The first half of the book is quite slow. We visit each of the team members in his home habitat, and he convinces each to join the heist. But after the action starts, the book developed into a page-turner. And you don’t know until the end how it will play out.

I especially liked the unique world-building which would not have been needed for the story. And the main world of the puppets and the theological system they follow. It is confusing at first as the author does not explain it directly and continuously reveals more parts of it as the book goes along.
