Political exiles are desperate to escape from the impossible city that imprisons them, in this bloody and brilliant epic fantasy Thousands of years ago, the city of Athanor was set adrift in time and space by alchemists, called the Curious Men . Ever since, it has accumulated cultures, citizens and species into a vast, unmappable metropolis.

Isten and her gang of half-starved political exiles live off petty crime and gangland warfare in Athanor's seediest alleys. Though they dream of returning home to lead a glorious revolution, Isten's downward spiral drags them into a mire of addiction and violence. 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.

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

Reviews for Ingenious

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.
