Editorial Reviews

Review

"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 and Iron Gold

"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 two or three days later."―Mark Lawrence, author of Prince of Thorns

"Senlin is a man worth rooting for, and his strengthening resolve and character is as marvelous and sprawling as the tower he climbs."―The Washington Post

"What is remarkable about this novel, quite apart from its rich, allusive prose, is Bancroft's portrayal of Senlin, a good man in a desperate situation, and the way he changes in response to his experiences in his ascent."―The Guardian

"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, author of The Thousand Names

"With deceptive simplicity Bancroft brings this gothic place and its denizens to a colourful life...I loved it!"―Adrian Selby, author of Snakewood

"Senlin Ascends is an adventure rife with character, voice and beauty-a well-polished knife drawn out slowly."―Sam Sykes, author of The City Stained Red

"Senlin Ascends is a unique masterpiece. A brilliant debut. Highly recommended!"―Michael R. Fletcher, author of Beyond Redemption

"Ticks along with the tight precision and artistry of a well-wound watch."―Kirkus

"This is fantasy storytelling of a high order."―The Toronto Star

About the Author

Josiah Bancroft started writing novels when he was twelve, and by the time he finished his first, he was an addict. Eventually, the writing of Senlin Ascends began, a fantasy adventure, not so unlike the stories that got him addicted to words in the first place. He wanted to do for others what his favorite writers had done for him: namely, to pick them up and to carry them to a wonderful and perilous world that is spinning very fast. If he's done that with this book, then he's happy.

Josiah lives in Philadelphia with his wife, Sharon, and their two rabbits, Mabel and Chaplin.
