Product description


It is not merely a 5* book, it's a masterpiece . . . readers will be talking about these books long after much of what currently keeps them company on the shelves is forgotten . . . I was thrilled by the story, wildly jealous of the writing, and am now very keen to read the final book (Mark Lawrence)

The Hod King is a vibrant, wholly original, and expertly crafted novel that transcends genre fantasy. It is an instant literary classic (FANTASY BOOK REVIEW)

Just as phenomenally written as its two predecessors . . . this one gets 6/5 stars, because 5 stars are not enough for the amount that I loved it. A universe of stars out of five! (SUPERSTAR DRIFTER)

Spectacular . . . Once again Josiah has produced something that belongs in the very top echelons of the fantasy genre (FANTASY HIVE)

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 on ARM OF THE SPHINX)

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

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

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)

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

Book Description

Set in a labyrinthine world of menace and wonder, The Hod King is the third novel in the highly acclaimed Books of Babel series, following on from Senlin Ascends and Arm of the Sphinx.
