Book cover for The Atlas Six

Dark-academia fantasy novel The Atlas Six was originally self-published before being snapped up for re-publication after it shot to fame on TikTok. 

The story follows six unbelievably attractive magicians as they fight for a place in the Alexandrian Society, switching loyalties and lust objects as they go. The Society guards lost knowledge from ancient civilizations and its members enjoy a lifetime of power and prestige. Yet each decade, only six practitioners are invited – to fill five places.

Following recruitment by the mysterious Atlas Blakely, the six travel to the Society’s London headquarters. Here, each must study and innovate within esoteric subject areas. And if they can prove themselves, over the course of a year, they’ll survive. Most of them.

It’s also headed by a man with plans to change life as we know it – and these are already under way.
