Kirkus Review

“Readers are flung back through the travalink in this engaging, high-speed third entry in the Lands of Inchoate series by Fisher (The Lands of Inchoate 2: The Before Time, 2009, etc.).

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. In this latest book, the world of Inchoate is once again 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 nearly instantaneous 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. As with his other Inchoate novels, 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. Returning characters include Naksarben and his two friendly jackalopes, George and Gracie, though one is destined for a short-lived homecoming. 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.”
