Editorial Reviews


FIVE STARS: "Masterpiece"
Book Viral Feb 26, 2017
"A gripping and enthralling blend of fact and hard science-fiction, Antioch is not only a highly entertaining Dystopian novel, but sure to engender serious reflection as Ness adds  unique and powerful twists that bridge multiple genres. A superb story with gathering momentum, his characters are vividly real, their overriding sense of purpose drawing his readers into impressively imaginative disparate timelines where an overriding sense of authenticity prevails. It's an impressive achievement, but it's the undeniable social commentary that elevates Antioch above its rivals. Drawing on history, science, politics and religion, it's woven through multiple plot threads as a thematic undertone whilst persuasive well-rounded characterisation and sublime descriptive prose render scenes that are compelling and immersive. There are a few tropes found in Antioch, but to his credit Ness doesn't exploit them to the point where we find ourselves reminded of other stories. His narrative is evenly paced and from a purely writing standpoint, he proves himself to be one of the best."

Having Faith Book Blog January 2017
 This book could have been a mystical revelation about the beliefs of the old world, which would have been fascinating historical fiction on its own. It could have been an exploration of sci-fi discovery, what would be suddenly possible and how people and religions might react to that. It could have been a Roman boy meets Egyptian girl sort of culture and identity metaphor. Reconciling it all together and sprinkling it with illusions, insights and points of reference in real history makes this book a bit special, when you think about it. That shouldn't have worked, but it has.

From the Author

I wrote Antioch for wonder junkies everywhere. 
Think of the Agrippa series as a kind of adult rabbit hole to crawl through and explore the intimate space between dreams and reality, from the beginning of western civilization to the beginning of its end. 
With the Agrippa series I set out to give readers an immersive, gritty, raw close-up look at the near future and ancient past.
