Product description


'Visceral and intense action scenes....The Modern World is vivid and fun, full of colourful and flawed characters.' - DEATHRAY

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

'Swainston is allowing us to find out a lot more about the other Immortals and their history, which is probably the most interesting part of the story.' - STARBURST

Entertaining and ingenious. - TIME OUT - Roz Kaveney

Book Description

The third of the Castle novels from new fantasy sensation Steph Swainston.
