9780060753894: DANGEROUS OFFSPRING ( US ) = The Modern World ( UK )

The third of the castle novels will take the reader ever deeper into a world of beauty and terror. A world led by an immortal emperor and the circle; his 50 immortal helpers. It is a world with an absentee god, a world that has been fighting a war against giant insects. A world like no other. There will be more insights into Jant, the emperors vain winged messenger, and the shift, the surreal other life Jant enters when he overdoses on his drug of choice and where he meets the dead in a land that defies logic. This is a fantasy series like no other - a literary fantasy with the verve and originality to stand alongside the best of Mervyn Peake, M. John Harrison and China Mieville.

Review:

"Visceral and intense action scenes...The Modern World is vivid and fun, full of colourful and flawed characters." DEATHRAY The Modern World is another glimpse into a fantasy world so agrresive it could knock seven shades of Hell out of most entries in the genre. We can't recommend it highly enough." -- Jayne Nelson SFX "Swainston is allowing us to find out a lot more about the other Immortals and their history, which is probably the most interesting part of the story." STARBURST "Entertaining and ingenious." --Roz Kaveney TIME OUT
