The Hod King, by Josiah Bancroft

Writer Nicholas Tucker said about Richard Adams’ 50-hankie-bunny-weepie, Watership Down, “Adams … has bravely and successfully resurrected the big picaresque adventure story, with moments of such tension that the helplessly involved reader finds himself checking whether things are going to work out all right on the next page before daring to finish the preceding one.” The same thing happened to me while I was reading The Hod King, book 3 in The Books of Babel series by Josiah Bancroft. I had a hard time stopping myself from paging over to see whether things are going to turn out all right.
