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.

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?

Very enjoyable book!

This book, and this series, is surprisingly enjoyable! The narration by John Banks felt like the right choice for this book and helped put me in the world Josiah Bancroft had created. The story itself is wonderful and its ending left me waiting anxiously for the last book in the series. Well done Josiah! #Audible1

Brings a fantastic story to life

I read the first book in this series, loved it and thought I would try the audio version for the second book. John Banks’ narration fit the world and characters I had envisioned when I read the first book. In fact, I like his performance so much that I am planning to listen to the first book as well. If you like steampunk adventure with a cast of interesting and complex characters, definitely give this series a listen. #Audible1

Below the surface resides the truth

But how hard we try to hide it or change it to what we prefer the truth to be. But what we reveal to ourselves and others, is not the truth. Still searching at 65.

If you enjoyed book 1, this won't disappoint. whether it's the fantastic narration, deep and interesting characters, or the refreshingly inventive and unique premise this series is pure gold, and I cannot wait for book 3!

Heart of Darkness met Wizard of Oz

the first book gave me a Heart of Darkness feel in a steampunk world. this second book is like the characters met the Wizard of Oz.

awesome books that I enjoy fully.

Great balance between character development interaction and story movement.

Improvement on the first book

In this volume the author fleshes out the vast of characters a bit more and offers us a more expansive vision of the Senlin universe, leaving me more curious about this world and story than I was when I started. Our heroes finally have compelling missions and are equally smart and flawed, which makes for more varied storytelling.

even better than the first one!

I enjoyed the first book so much that I immediately bought the second, but the second book was far and away even better than the first! Bancroft has crafted an excellent piece of storytelling with an immursive world, beautifully evolving characters, and a touch of philosophy that parallels questions in our own world in wonderful way

Don't pass this series up!

Senlin, now a pirate Captain, along with his crew Iren, Edith, Voleta, and Adam; continue the adventure of finding Senlin's missing bride. Being a hunted man has it's downfalls, even for a pirate, when ports are closed for trade, Senlin becomes desperate and seeks help from unlikely allies. Thus, a new adventure begins in this imaginative narrative, with some of the most fascinating prose I've ever read. Yes, it's that good. The character development is enchanting in this episode, as we see the point of view of each crew member. When I try to figure out who is the most interesting and complex, I think of the next. They all become special with the unique prose, the author has been so gifted with. John Banks is perfect in delivery, he was made to read this story.

Much better than the 1st book

the 1st book seemed to be.....too confident at times for Thomas. The elaborate schemes that FG went through to hire an employee ect....

This one seemed much more grounded and was far better as a result.

An Amazing Sequel

Everything you loved about the first book is expanded and improved here! Can't recommend this series enough. The next book is at the top of my most anticipated books to look forward to.
