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)

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)

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 (GUARDIAN)
