Product Description

Brimming with imaginationThe Shadows of the Apt series is simply one of the best epic fantasy series out thereSuper worldbuilding, great characters and extreme inventivenessEpic fantasy at its best. Gripping, original and multi-layered storytelling from a writer bursting with lots of fascinating ideasFull of sparking, speculative innovationBreathtaking scope and vision. Adrian Tchaikovsky is one of our finest writersA joy from start to finish. Entertaining, smart, surprising and unexpectedly humanThe epic fantasy series of war and empire by Arthur C. Clarke Award-winning author Adrian Tchaikovsky continues. A terrible new power could see the Wasp Empire triumph over everything. It's time for spymaster Stenwold to choose his path.

Salute the Dark is the fourth book in the critically acclaimed epic fantasy series Shadows of the Apt by Adrian Tchaikovsky, winner of the Arthur C. Clarke Award. As spymaster Stenworld makes a stand in his home city, others must chose where their loyalties lie.

All must face the end of days . . .

The mighty Wasp armies are on the march. And with war imminent, spymaster Stenwold must finally separate allies from false friends. He knows the Empire won’t stop until its flag hangs over Collegium, Stenwold's home city. Tisamon the Weaponsmaster favours a more direct strategy – facing the Wasp Emperor himself, with a blade in his hand. He’d be abandoning both friends and family to do so. Yet is he driven by honour, or being manipulated by something far more sinister?

With the Shadow Box in his possession at last, Uctebri can begin his dark ritual. The Wasp-kinden’s Emperor believes this will grant him immortality. However, Uctebri has his own plans – for the Emperor and the Empire.

Salute the Dark is followed by the fifth book in the Shadows of the Apt series, The Scarab Path.

Adrian Tchaikovsky was born in Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire, and headed off to university in Reading to study psychology and zoology. For reasons unclear even to himself, he subsequently ended up in law. Adrian has since worked as a legal executive in both Reading and Leeds and now writes full time. He also lives in Leeds, with his wife and son. Adrian is a keen live role-player and occasional amateur actor. He has also trained in stage-fighting and keeps no exotic or dangerous pets of any kind – possibly excepting his son.

Adrian is the author of the critically acclaimed Shadows of the Apt series, the Echoes of the Fall series and other novels, novellas and short stories. The Tiger and the Wolf won the British Fantasy Award for Best Fantasy Novel – and Children of Time won the Arthur C. Clarke Award for Best Science Fiction Novel. This was in the award’s thirtieth anniversary year.

The Shadows of the Apt series by Arthur C. Clarke Award winner Adrian Tchaikovsky is an utterly immersive epic fantasy adventure. This ten-book extravaganza is perfect for readers who enjoy the richly imagined worlds of Brandon Sanderson and George R. R. Martin. Magic, intrigue and danger abound in Empire in Black and Gold, which introduces the world of the ‘kinden’. Each kinden is a race of humans, named after – and sharing certain characteristics with – a different insect. And they do not coexist peacefully . . .
