Dragonfly Falling

Adrian Tchaikovsky, Author . Pyr $16 (467p) ISBN 978-1-61614-195-0

Tchaikovsky returns to the caste-haunted insect-themed world of 2010’s Empire in Black and Gold , as the inapt kinden realize that their natural gifts and old knowledge are no longer sufficient to allow them to dominate their apt cousins, who can use technology. The Wasp kinden have been slowly conquering the land for three generations, and the people of the Lowlands are finally waking to the danger that confronts them. As Wasps threaten Collegium, a city of innovators and a rallying point for Lowland resistance, the diverse protagonists struggle to salvage what they can, unleashing forces beyond their control. The story will be recognizable to anyone familiar with modern fantasy (or even the Persian invasion of Greece), but Tchaikovsky’s setting is innovative, the characters are engaging, and the battles are epic. Several further volumes are planned. (Apr.)
