A REVIEW BY KIRKUS DISCOVERIES: Fisher’s complex story of faith, political schemes, death and science brings characters new and old into the fray, and further explores characters in the strange world of Inchoate. The world of Inchoate is on the brink of disaster, leading scientists to return the dark-matter planet to its former haunt within the planet Earth. The task is made possible via the ingenious travalink, a device that allows near-light transport from one part of the universe to the other. The planet’s inhabitants are no sooner settled in to their old home, however, before unearthing a finding of great political and religious significance—one that threatens to shake the planet to its core. Fisher’s keen grasp of science helps create a believable, full-bodied civilization. The lands and characters resemble an odd marriage of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings saga and the more recent Dune novels. The author’s descriptions of the various languages of Inchoate, and the background of various civilizations, are reminiscent of Tolkien’s seminal work. His characters range from religious leaders to criminals, and like the Dune characters, each gets print time in this tale. Inchoate is a land with a varied, rich history, culled from seemingly real-life examples. The author’s sharp attention to detail, in elements from language to food, brings an original sense of realism to the tale—sometimes it appears more history book than fiction. A condensed, fast-paced story whose entertaining intensity will eventually sweep readers away.
