This was a surprise find. The story starts out slow and the main character is week and whining so I considered dropping this listen after the first four hours. However; the story started to develop enough that I kept listening, and then better side characters kept appearing and the story kept getting more and more exciting. The first volume ends in an epic dungeon crawl with exciting battles and a very nasty and horrific end boss fight. I’m now waiting for the next volume to be released.

Better than Brandon Sanderson

Epic high magic fantasy story: Check
Deeper magic system than Myst born: check
More world building than Way of Kings: check
Much better narration than Michael Cramer: check
Fast pace, constant page turner, keeps you enchanted the whole time listening (unlike other audio books, I keep falling asleep to whole sections of Way of Kings, then Terry Mancour is for you.

Double plus good

The book gets high marks for characters, plot, story, world building and pacing. It’s all set in a world full of steampunk technology where mysterious pseudo scientists manufacturer steam powered airships and chimera / cyborg like automatons integrated with humans and animals. The story and characters are similar to those in The Mortal Engines by Phillip Reeve, except rather than the action moving from mobile city to city, it all happens around a tower that is as tall as Mount Everest and divided into 64 county / city sized floors / levels. If you liked The Mortal Engines series or the Abhorsen series by Garth Nyx (Sabriel, Lirael) then you will definitely like the three books of the Tower of Babel series. The narrator was pleasant to listen to but I did set the speed to 1.25x for a more enjoyable listen.

An Epic adventure story in a steampunk world.
