The third installment of The Books of Babel series, 'The Hod King,' is just as strong a story as books one and two: Senlin Ascends and Arm of the Sphinx. In book one, an unassuming village school teacher, Thomas Senlin, and his wife, Marya, are separated at the base of the Tower of Babel during their honeymoon. Determined to be reunited with his beloved wife, Senlin journeys upward through the many ringdoms of the tower. Survival isn’t a guarantee, and Senlin must adapt and grow if he hopes to find her. Be prepared for a steampunk adventure with flying pirates, crazed assassins, zealous rebels, and stout-hearted friends. Expect the fourth and final book in 2020.
