Ben Haenow is pronounced as Ben Haynow, which is curious because in The Earth Emperor’s Eye Ben Whittenbury draws up a magical Haymakers Survey and dreams of being a champion for Nature.

So, was Ben Haenow’s victory the Earth Emperor’s doing in the hope of inspiring people to become Haymakers?  His playlist during the competition seem to vindicate it, because readers will know they all relate to the story.
