Mild-mannered headmaster, Thomas Senlin prefers his adventures to be safely contained within the pages of a book. So when he loses his new bride shortly after embarking on the honeymoon of their dreams, he is ill-prepared for the trouble that follows.

To find her, Senlin must enter the Tower of Babel - a world of geniuses and tyrants, of menace and wonder, of unusual animals and mysterious machines.

He must endure betrayal, assassination attempts and the long guns of a flying fortress. And if he hopes to ever see his wife again, he will have to do more than just survive . . . this quiet man of letters must become a man of action.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Senlin Ascends is one of the best reads I've had in ages . . . I was dragged in and didn't escape until I'd finished . . . So many lines made me deeply jealous. Clever, literary, insightful lines that cut to the quick of the matter. The story is compelling. It unfolds and unfolds. Because the characters are excellently drawn, I cared very much about where it was all going. The imagination is unbound and intriguing . . . I hope it finds the audience it deserves." - Mark Lawrence

“A wonderful debut, and a fine example of world-building.”

I used to be a huge Steampunk fan. Loved everything about it - the aesthetic, the ideas, the ingenuity. But, after a while, they all got a bit same-y. Often, it felt like the plot and characters were the last things... More

A thoroughly absorbing book best classified in the Steampunk sub-genre of fantasy. In fact, the first Steampunk story I've read.
Senlin Ascends is set in a mythical version of The Tower of Babel with apparently... More
