THE THIRD NOVEL IN THE HIGHLY ACCLAIMED BOOKS OF BABEL SERIES, SET IN A LABYRINTHINE WORLD OF MENACE AND WONDER.

'It is not merely a 5* book, it's a masterpiece' Mark Lawrence

'A vibrant, wholly original, and expertly crafted novel that transcends genre fantasy. It is an instant literary classic' Fantasy Book Review

Thomas Senlin and his crew have been separated following the orders of the mysterious Sphinx. Meanwhile, the enslaved hods climb the Black Trail and whisper secrets in the dark. As Senlin and his crew are dragged ever further into the Tower's conspiracies, everything falls to one question: who is the Hod King?

MEDIA REVIEWS

Josiah Bancroft is a magician. His books are that rare alchemy: gracefully written, deliriously imaginative, action-packed, warm, witty and thought-provoking. I can't wait for more - Madeline Miller, author of CIRCE

It is not merely a 5* book, it's a masterpiece . . . readers will be talking about these books long after much of what currently keeps them company on the shelves is forgotten . . . I was thrilled by the story, wildly jealous of the writing, and am now very keen to read the final book - Mark Lawrence

The Hod King is a vibrant, wholly original, and expertly crafted novel that transcends genre fantasy. It is an instant literary classic - FANTASY BOOK REVIEW

Just as phenomenally written as its two predecessors . . . this one gets 6/5 stars, because 5 stars are not enough for the amount that I loved it. A universe of stars out of five! - SUPERSTAR DRIFTER

Spectacular . . . Once again Josiah has produced something that belongs in the very top echelons of the fantasy genre - FANTASY HIVE

Like its predecessor it is a brilliant piece of work . . . these two books are genius. I just love them. The story, characters and imagination shine - Mark Lawrence on ARM OF THE SPHINX

An extraordinary debut that is well worthy of the hype. A beautifully written, highly engaging page-turning masterpiece - FANTASY BOOK REVIEW on SENLIN ASCENDS

Senlin Ascends crosses the everyday strangeness and lyrical prose of Borges and Gogol with all the action and adventure of high fantasy. I loved it, and grabbed the next one as soon as I turned the last page - Django Wexler on SENLIN ASCENDS

Brilliant debut fantasy . . . this novel goes off like a firework and suggests even greater things in the author's future - PUBLISHERS WEEKLY on SENLIN ASCENDS

It's rare to find a modern book that feels like a timeless classic. I'm wildly in love with this book - Pierce Brown, on SENLIN ASCENDS

An impressive display of imagination and humour . . . we have no reservations about recommending it - SCIFINOW on SENLIN ASCENDS

Deeply compelling . . . A classic in the making - B&N SCI-FI AND FANTASY BLOG

A brilliant third instalment in Josiah Bancroft's inspired Books of Babel quartet - FANTASY HIVE

The Books of Babel are something you hope to see perhaps once a decade - future classics, which may be remembered long after the series concludes. Only a few days into 2019, I think we've already found a contender for 'fantasy book of the year' - LA TIMES

The Hod King

The Books of Babel Series book 3 was a great read and integrated the separate stories into a woven tapestry.

Another great, highly inventive and riveting book in the Babel series. In this book, the main characters are split up: Iren & Voleta as a pair; Senlin and Adam on their own; and Edith with Byron and Reddleman (a... More
