Description
Senlin continues his ascent up the tower in the word-of-mouth phenomenon fantasy series about one man's dangerous journey through a labyrinthine world.
"One of my favorite books of all time" — Mark Lawrence on Senlin Ascends
The Tower of Babel is proving to be as difficult to reenter as it was to break out of. Forced into a life of piracy, Senlin and his eclectic crew are struggling to survive aboard their stolen airship as the hunt to rescue Senlin's lost wife continues.
Hopeless and desolate, they turn to a legend of the Tower, the mysterious Sphinx. But help from the Sphinx never comes cheaply, and as Senlin knows, debts aren't always what they seem in the Tower of Babel.
Time is running out, and now Senlin must choose between his friends, his freedom, and his wife.
Does anyone truly escape the Tower?

      • bioText:

        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, their daughter Maddie, and their two rabbits, Mabel and Chaplin.

        Starred review from March 26, 2018
        Bancroft’s brilliant second installment in the Books of Babel, following Senlin Ascends, continues Thomas Senlin’s desperate quest to reunite with his wife, Marya, whom he lost in the crowd at the base of the unknowably high and teemingly crowded Tower of Babel. Now the captain of a ragtag pirate airship, Senlin (using the name Mudd) must find some way into the aristocratic and well-armed ringdom of Pelphia, where the latest rumors indicate Marya is. But Senlin is a wanted criminal, fewer and fewer ports are open to his crew, and his first mate owes a mysterious debt to the Sphinx, a creature of myth and whisper whose marks are stamped all over the Tower. Bancroft’s world continues to teem with explosive energy, and he ranges ably from the transcendent to the vicious in an instant. The unchecked splendor 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.
