DARIUS HINKS works and lives in Nottinghamshire, England. He spent the nineties playing guitar for the grunge band, cable but when his music career ended in a bitter law suit, he turned to writing. His first novel, Warrior Priest, won the David Gemmell Morningstar award and, so far at least, none of his novels have resulted in litigation.dariushinks.comtwitter.com/dariushinks
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.
