Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

Homo Cosmicus 2: Titan is a work of fiction in the science fiction, conceptual fiction, and mystery subgenres and serves as the sequel to Homo Cosmicus. It is suitable for the general reading audience and was penned by author Todor Bombov. The book follows the development of Titan as a hub of interplanetary development in the year 2069. As private corporations and NASA continue to invest manpower into harvesting what they can from Saturn’s moon, a series of deaths start to overshadow the operation. The mysterious nature of the deaths suggests that they aren’t mere accidents, but it’s up to protagonist Dr. Eddie Roberto to untangle the mystery.

I was in awe within a few chapters of this story. In awe of the scale of the vision of the solar system that the author had created, in awe of the complex world and society that had been created, and in awe of author Todor Bombov’s gift for bringing us into this foreign world without sacrificing the pacing of the story or the consideration of the key themes. The narrative that unfolds around the deaths of key mission members is a compelling and complex mystery that carefully unfolds at the perfect pace to allow readers time to digest and consider developments before twisting the tale once more to deepen the mystery. Overall, Homo Cosmicus 2 has a vivid idea of Earth's future and has constructed the perfect narrative angle to explore the social and political implications of this vision of mankind that lies just beyond the horizon.

Homo Cosmicus 2: Titan is the second book in the Homo Cosmicus saga by Todor Bombov. It's the year 2069. Earthlings have successfully mastered space travel and colonized many of the planets, satellites, and asteroids of the solar system. A group of ten of the brightest scientists of the human race takes a trip to Saturn's satellite Titan aboard a disk-shaped ship for a scientific expedition. As the members of the team acclimatize themselves to their new environment, a few witness evidence of life forms on the extraordinary satellite. But their joy is short-lived as a series of murders shake them to their core. Upon investigating, the remaining survivors learn that someone is taking them out one by one, following the plot of one of Agatha Christie's most famous novels. Can they return home safely? Will their mission be successful?

If you're a fan of sci-fi thrillers set in space, you will find plenty to enjoy in Todor Bombov's Homo Cosmicus 2: Titan. Bombov doesn't waste too many words and drops you into a fully fleshed-out futuristic setting where the human race has evolved into a Type-II civilization on the Kardeshev scale, creating an engaging yarn filled with suspense, mystery, intrigue, and plenty of thrills. The narrative is short, concise, and to the point. The author uses a lot of expository scenes to ease the reader into the scientific concepts explored within the story, making it accessible and all the more immersive to read. Overall, I enjoyed the book. I recommend it to fans of sci-fi who love stories set in space.
