'Josiah Bancroft is a magician. His books are that rare alchemy: gracefully written, deliriously imaginative, action-packed, warm, witty and thought-provoking' Madeline Miller, author of Circe

'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

Forced by necessity into a life of piracy, Senlin and his eclectic crew struggle to survive aboard their stolen airship as the hunt for his lost wife continues. But the Tower of Babel is proving to be as difficult to re-enter as it was to escape.

Hopeless and desolate, they turn to a legend of the tower, the mysterious Sphinx. But help from the sphinx doesn't come cheaply and, as Senlin knows, debts aren't always what they seem in the Tower of Babel.

Praise for the series:

'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:

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)

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)

Bancroft's world continues to teem with explosive energy, and he ranges ably from the transcendent to the vicious in an instant. The unchecked splendour of the scenery is balanced by the complicated, sympathetic characters, and the plot maintains a steady stream of surprises without ever wearying. This volume not only matches but adds to the notable achievements of the first. (PUBLISHERS WEEKLY)

The world-building is brilliant and totally unique . . . I devoured this book within a couple of days. Arm of the Sphinx is a completely original and beautifully written story that is poetic, descriptive and completely intoxicating (FANTASY BOOK REVIEW)

Every page of Arm of the Sphinx is a delectable treat, with countless delightful passages, characters and a story that gets more intriguing as mysteries build and questions are answered . . . a wonderful series that has all the makings of a modern fantasy classic (THE SPECULATIVE SHELF)

Arm of the Sphinx is an entertaining and easily devoured read . . . Bancroft's prose is beautiful - at times breathtaking . . . In his deadpan humour and sparkling creativity, Bancroft's writing reminds me of Terry Pratchett - breaking ground and defying tropes with an entirely different kind of world (FANTASY FACTION)

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

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

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

Book Description:

Arm of the Sphinx is the stunning second novel in the highly acclaimed Books of Babel series, following on from Senlin Ascends
