Quantum Terra by Kirk Marty is a novel that makes one question the realness and truth behind a lot of things. It is a science thriller fiction that takes one’s imagination on a high and wild ride. Other parts of the themes of this book are friendship, love, and racism.

This book is about a young attorney, Nick Shuman. He got entangled in the war between two groups (The Foundation and The Society). The lawsuit is about some acres of land that was mortgaged to The Society by The Foundation. The Society obtained a temporary restraining order to stop The Foundation from getting a foreclosure. So, Nick was invited to help The Foundation get the foreclosure? Unknowing to Nick what awaits him, Nick accepted the offer. Nick started experiencing strange things that are unique to only him. Later, he was framed for a murder case. Will he be able to prove his innocence? Or how far will he go to overcome the strange things happening to him?

I must commend Kirk Marty for creating an intensely character-driven story. He combined science, dreams, religions, laws, and the legal system to create a fantastic storyline that is relatable. The author was able to engage the reader with his incredible writing skills. He achieved this by combining the first-person narrative with the third-person narrative. Also, the book is sprinkled with many scientific concepts, especially those of physics and mathematics. I found most of the scientific concepts intriguing and enthusiastic.

Furthermore, the introduction of a world with many realities was mind-blowing. I enjoyed the explanation behind Baseline Reality and Probable Reality and how the author related these realities to our everyday activities. That shows that the author did a thorough background work before writing this novel. The flashbacks made it easier for the reader to understand the characters. Also, the author showed that earlier racism does not only have to do with color but also with class.

The startling thing about this book is the suspense tools used by Kirk Marty. Anytime you feel like the story is dragging and getting kind of boring, Nick will hint at something that catches one's attention. Also, the humorous reply thought given by Nick Shuman to the Tachyon's problem got me laughing out seriously.

In as much I loved the book, the only thing I disliked about it was that the author failed to interpret some of the Spanish languages in the book. Other than that, I enjoyed every other thing.

This book deserves a four-star rating. However, I am awarding the book 3 out of 4 stars because the book was not well edited. I noticed several grammatical and punctuation errors that hindered my reading experience. Other than that, the book is an interesting book. I would recommend it to lovers of sci-fi novels.

The plot seems fascinating, sadly, I don't like sci-fi. Thanks for the review, though.

A thriller story that uses alternate realities is intriguing, with another round of proofreading, this novel could be excellent. Thank you for your great review!
