Isten must find a way to save the exiles and herself if they are ever to build a better, fairer world for the people of their distant homeland.File Under: Fantasy [ Alchymical Exiles | Loathing and Fear | Manifest Revelation | City of Broken Spheres ]
"A compelling and richly characterful first step into an awesome new world. Athanor is a hell of a place to get lost. I hope Darius hurries up with the sequel..." "Visceral and intense, The Ingenious creates a world that is rich, vivid and enticing." "A deftly woven fantasy, rich in imagination and narrative flare and wrought in lyrical prose. Not to be missed." "Hinks's descriptions are intense, bordering on the grotesque" "Its constantly changing nature gives it the sense of a wild, beautiful, protean place, its danger as seductive as it is horrifying." "totally immersive" "I'll be upfront: I loved The Ingenious."
