The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): The Hod King (The Books of Babel #3) by Josiah Bancroft

On Friday's I take part in three weekly link ups - The Friday 56, hosted by Freda's Voice, and Book Beginnings, hosted by Rose City Reader.  For The Friday 56, you choose a book, a book you have just finished, a book you are about to start, your current read, and share a line or a few lines that grab you (but don't spoil anything) from page 56 or 56% of the way through the ebook. Post it and share your post's url on Freda's most recent Friday 56 post. As for Book Beginnings, you share the first sentence or so and your initial thoughts, impressions, or whatever else it inspires, and then link up your post's url with Rose City Reader. 

Happy Friday everyone!  This week I'm spotlighting one of my Mythothon readathon books, The Hod King (The Books of Babel #3) by Josiah Bancroft.  The first two books of this series have been truly outstanding and I know that this will be as well.


The sun clacked alon an iron track among the gaslight stars high above the white city of Pelphia.


When Senlin shook the leaves, a brittle bookplate fell out, bearing the name Ostraka University.  On the plate, three stately pillars were laced in ivy and underscored with the motto: "Out of ignorance: inquiry.  Out of inquiry: proof."

Have you read this book?  What are you reading this weekend?  As always, thanks for visiting my blog and perhaps even commenting down below!


  1. Great cover and excerpts. Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “THE BOOK OF TWO WAYS”

  2. I loved Senlin Ascends but haven't finished the series. I must get to the last two books at some point!

  3. Sounds brilliant. And that cover is so cool! Have a lovely weekend. Here's my Friday post.

  4. Interesting motto, one to ponder for sure! Happy weekend!

  5. Sounds like an entertaining book and series, although I haven't rea it. Have a great weekend!

  6. The cover looks so interesting! Thanks for sharing and enjoy your week :)
