'One of my favourite books of all time' - Mark Lawrence

'I'm wildly in love with this book' - Pierce Brown

DISCOVER THE EXTRAORDINARY DEBUT THAT HAS GOT EVERYONE TALKING

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. 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.

'Brilliant' - Publishers Weekly

'I loved it' - Django Wexler

'An engrossing intoxicating delight' - Forbidden Planet

'An extraordinary debut that is well worthy of the hype. A beautifully written, highly engaging page-turning masterpiece' - Fantasy Book Review

'Thomas Senlin is the most unlikely yet likeable hero since a certain hobbit rushed out of Bag End leaving his second breakfast half-finished and entirely unwashed-up' - Fantasy Faction

Review:

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's rare to find a modern book that feels like a timeless classic. I'm wildly in love with this book (Pierce Brown, author of RED RISING)

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)

Wonderfully unique and superbly well written. I loved every page (Nicholas Eames, author of KINGS OF THE WYLD)

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

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

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)

An impressive display of imagination and humour . . . we have no reservations about recommending it (SCIFINOW)

A terrific, free-ranging fantasy that ranges from Kafkaesque horror to heist thriller . . . This book is bonkers, entertaining, clever and - quite possibly - unique (PORNOKITSCH)

Senlin Ascends was a fantastic read, and felt truly unique. I will most definitely be reading the rest of Bancroft's work (BOOKNEST)
