Opening the doors to a world of magic, ancient wisdom and secret societies, this slice of richly imagined and unputdownable fantasy follows six uniquely talented young magicians as they are invited to an initiation that will change their lives forever.

The Atlas Six by Olivie Blake is the runaway TikTok must-read fantasy novel of the year. If you loved Ninth House and A Deadly Education, you'll love this.

The world's best young magicians accept the opportunity of a lifetime.

Six are chosen. Only five will walk away.

The Alexandrian Society is a secret society of magical academicians, the best in the world. Their members are caretakers of lost knowledge from the greatest civilizations of antiquity. And those who earn a place among their number will secure a life of wealth, power, and prestige beyond their wildest dreams. Each decade, the world's six most uniquely talented magicians are selected for initiation - and here are the chosen few...

- Libby Rhodes and Nicolas Ferrer de Varona: inseparable enemies, cosmologists who can control matter with their minds.
- Reina Mori: a naturalist who can speak the language of life itself.
- Parisa Kamali: a mind reader whose powers of seduction are unmatched.
- Tristan Caine: the son of a crime kingpin who can see the secrets of the universe.
- Callum Nova: an insanely rich pretty boy who could bring about the end of the world. He need only ask.

When the candidates are recruited by the mysterious Atlas Blakely, they are told they must spend one year together to qualify for initiation. During this time, they will be permitted access to the Society's archives and judged on their contributions to arcane areas of knowledge. Five, they are told, will be initiated. One will be eliminated. If they can prove themselves to be the best, they will survive. Most of them.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Lethally smart. Filled with a cast of brilliantly realized characters, each entangled with one another in torturously delicious ways, The Atlas Six will grip you by the throat and refuse to let go. Olivie Blake is a mind-blowing talent - Chloe Gong, New York Times bestselling author of These Violent Delights

The Atlas Six introduces six of the most devious, talented, and flawed characters to ever find themselves in a magical library, and then sets them against one another in a series of stunning betrayals and reversals. As much a delicious contest of wit, will, and passion as it is of magic, this book is half mystery, half puzzle, and wholly a delight - Holly Black, author of Book of Night and the Folk of the Air series

Compelling, entertaining, and addictive. This is academic Darwinism – survival of the smartest - T. L. Huchu, author of The Library of the Dead

With a fascinating magic system explored through the lens of philosophy and morality, narrated by dynamic, enthralling characters, The Atlas Six is a tour de force. I read this book in two sittings – once I picked it up, I found it almost impossible to put down - Christine Lynn Herman, author of All of Us Villains

This chilling story of ambition and magic will make you question your own morals as you grow to love (and hate) its fascinating, ruthless cast of characters. I utterly devoured this book - Amanda Foody, author of All of Us Villains

The Atlas Six will thrill those who love twisted plots, twisted relationships, and morally grey characters ready to kill for knowledge and power. Dark, ambitious, and engaging - H. G. Parry, author of The Unlikely Escape of Uriah Heep

With a cast of complicated hate-to-love-them characters and enough delicious philosophizing to satisfy even the pickiest dark academia heart, this book will drag you into its undertow and refuse to let you go 'til morning - Victoria Lee, author of A Lesson in Vengeance

Coolly horrific, brilliantly brainy and utterly compelling - Daily Mail

Dense with ideas, with a compelling premise . . . a richly satisfying head-trip - SFX Magazine

Rich characters and richer prose, The Atlas Six is a fun, twisty page-turner that left me wanting more. Olivie Blake is an author to look out for! - Susan Dennard, author of The Luminaries

“Atlas Six Review - Uncommonkim”

A very fun read, while being quite slow going at the beginning I found that the pace picked up through the second half of the book which I found to be a lot more enjoyable.

The magic system throughout I found very... More
