Publisher's Summary

The secrets of the tower will finally be revealed in the remarkable conclusion to the highly acclaimed Books of Babel series.

As Marat's siege engine bores through the Tower, Senlin can do nothing but observe the mayhem from inside the belly of the beast. Edith and her crew are forced to face Marat on unequal footing, with Senlin caught in the crossfire, while Adam attempts to unravel the mystery of his fame inside the crowning ringdom. And when the Brick Layer's true ambition is revealed, neither the Tower nor its inhabitants will ever be the same again.

The Books of Babel:

  • Senlin Ascends
  • The Arm of the Sphinx
  • The Hod King
  • The Fall of Babel

Critic Reviews

"Josiah Bancroft is a magician. His books are that rare alchemy: gracefully written, deliriously imaginative, action-packed, warm, witty and thought-provoking." (Madeline Miller, author of Circe)

"The Books of Babel are something you hope to see perhaps once a decade - future classics, which may be remembered long after the series concludes." (LA Times

end of a great ride

what a great series of books and I honestly could not tell you which in the series was my favourite

the characters are so well fleshed out and drawn as well as the steam punk type backdrop of the world gets you conjuring so many images

but over all great story well worth the investment

Such a wonderful convincing magical world

the authors humour and imagination never weavered throughout the whole series .You never could guess the outcomes .I loved them all .the earlier ones slightly more than this last one, but all in all a really clever and softly funny book .The narrator was excellent too .

Excellent and elliptical ending

An exciting finale. New ringdoms, new technologies and strange happenings. It leaves all our characters with open, uncertain yet hopeful futures. I really wish one day there may be future books in this world to hear of the later years of the tower and beyond. Thanks Josiah for such a fascinating, tender and bizarre series.
