Mark Ferguson’s Terra Incognita is a complex book. There are many complicated ideas that the author put to words. At times, I had to double back and re-read sections – not because it was poorly written, but because the concept was hard to comprehend. The author does a fantastic job with the amount of detail included. Those who are less interested in detail may find the book hard to read, however for people who enjoy the additional level of information in their stories will love the author’s writing style.
There are a lot of alien races, each with their own unique abilities and the author provides a good level of world building to give each race substance. I applaud the author for the amount of thought and planning to bring this story together.
This story is not my personal flavor of reading, however I did find it interesting and could see where this would appeal to heavy science fiction readers who love detail and extensive world building.
