Editorial Reviews


Grimdark Magazine: Eleventh Cycle checks all the boxes of a grimdark masterpiece. It is a stunning achievement, establishing Kian N. Ardalan as one of the most exciting new voices in speculative fiction.

Petrik Leo: Eleventh Cycle is one of the best books I’ve read. Berserk and Dark Souls fans, this page-turning epic grimdark fantasy novel is written for us.

Under The Radar SFF: Kian will sink his claws into your skin and not let go even after the shocking conclusion. This is my Top novel of 2022 and I’m sure it will be yours when it is released in 2023!

Escapist Reviews: This is a book that will sit in a readers mind for a very long time. There are a number of people who Mr. Ardalan could be compared to, but I believe he has set a mark that makes him stand alone, a true defining moment. It is beautiful, it is jaw dropping, it is a book that will have many talking and thinking even after reading the final words.

Out of This World Reviews: Along the way you will be treated to some outstanding worldbuilding, egotistical gods, magical creatures born of nightmares, and some of the very best writing out there. Author Kian N. Ardalan has undeniably done something very special here and the entire reading world should stand up and take notice. Book two can’t come fast enough for me.

About the Author

Kian N. Ardalan was born in Germany, Dusseldorf to Persian parents and has since travelled between so many places that he sees himself as a person of the world; well, with one exception.When he wasn’t playing video games or reading novels (mostly Darren Shan and Anthony Horowitz) or trying to convince his parents to watch that R-rated movie about vampires and werewolves, he delved into fantasy worlds of his own making.It began with a novella about a young girl, not hoarded by a fierce dragon, but rather protected and raised by one.On the other hand, The Fantastically Underwhelming Epic wonders why the hero of the story always has to be some all-powerful child of prophecy? Why can’t it just be about a clueless, young bard who is simply trying to make good on a promise with a wise-cracking skull as their companion?Despite his teacher’s warnings, Kian decided to lean into that realm and now invites others to also explore these vibrant (and perhaps worrying) reflections of his own psyche. Stay tuned for his upcoming book, inspired by the cryptic world of Dark Souls.
