Product description

Review

Swainston combines light and dark, gore and grime with cheeky humour. (SFX)

"Swainston paints a world that is vividly rendered, detailed and surprisingly gritty. Imaginative, inventive and wholly thrilling stuff." (SCI FI NOW) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Review

Swainston's third novel is an impressive illustration of how fantasy does not have to be imitation Tolkien. - The Guardian

The Modern World is another welcome glimpse into a fantasy world so aggressive it could knock seven shades of Hell out of most entries in the genre. We can't recommend it highly enough. - SFX

Steph Swainston's writing is as elegantly superior to most other fantasy as a samurai sword is to a flint dagger

Honest-to-god unputdownable. A blistering debut (THE YEAR OF OUR WAR) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
