the No.1 Bestseller and TikTok Sensation
Lethally smart. Filled with a cast of brilliantly realized characters, each entangled with one another in torturously delicious ways, The Atlas Six will grip you by the throat and refuse to let go. Olivie Blake is a mind-blowing talent -- Chloe Gong,<i> New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>These Violent Delights</i> The Atlas Six introduces six of the most devious, talented, and flawed characters to ever find themselves in a magical library, and then sets them against one another in a series of stunning betrayals and reversals. As much a delicious contest of wit, will, and passion as it is of magic, this book is half mystery, half puzzle, and wholly a delight -- Holly Black, author of <i>Book of Night</i> and the Folk of the Air series Compelling, entertaining, and addictive. This is academic Darwinism survival of the smartest -- T. L. Huchu, author of <i>The Library of the Dead</i> With a fascinating magic system explored through the lens of philosophy and morality, narrated by dynamic, enthralling characters, The Atlas Six is a tour de force. I read this book in two sittings once I picked it up, I found it almost impossible to put down -- Christine Lynn Herman, author of <i>All of Us Villains</i> This chilling story of ambition and magic will make you question your own morals as you grow to love (and hate) its fascinating, ruthless cast of characters. I utterly devoured this book -- Amanda Foody, author of <i>All of Us Villains</i> The Atlas Six will thrill those who love twisted plots, twisted relationships, and morally grey characters ready to kill for knowledge and power. Dark, ambitious, and engaging -- H. G. Parry, author of <i>The Unlikely Escape of Uriah Heep</i> With a cast of complicated hate-to-love-them characters and enough delicious philosophizing to satisfy even the pickiest dark academia heart, this book will drag you into its undertow and refuse to let you go 'til morning -- Victoria Lee, author of <i>A Lesson in Vengeance</i> Coolly horrific, brilliantly brainy and utterly compelling -- <i>Daily Mail</i> Dense with ideas, with a compelling premise . . . a richly satisfying head-trip -- <i>SFX Magazine</i> Rich characters and richer prose, The Atlas Six is a fun, twisty page-turner that left me wanting more. Olivie Blake is an author to look out for! -- Susan Dennard, author of <i>The Luminaries</i>
Olivie Blake is a lover and writer of stories, and is the pen name of Alexene Farol Follmuth. Many of her stories involve the fantastic, the paranormal, or the supernatural, but not always. More often, her works revolve around our collective experience of what it means to be human (or not), and the endlessly interesting complexities of life and love. Alexene tripped and fell into writing after abandoning her long-premeditated track for Optimum Life Achievement while attending law school. She now focuses primarily on the craft and occasional headache of creating fiction. As Olivie, she has been published as the featured fiction contributor for Witch Way Magazine, as well as the writer for the self-published graphic novel series Alpha and a variety of other titles, including The Atlas Six. Alexene lives and works in Los Angeles, where she is generally tolerated by her rescue pit bull. She can be loosely defined as the sort of person who picked up sparring to help her write fight scenes.
