The Church of Armes of the Light has battled the forces of Darkness for as long as anyone can remember. The great prophecy has foretold that a band of misfits, led by a high priestess will defeat the Dark Lord Darvezian, armed with their wits, the blessing of the Light and an artifact stolen from the merciless Spider Queen. Their journey will be long, hard and fraught with danger. Allies will become enemies; enemies will become allies. And the Dark Lord will be waiting, always waiting... Spiderlight is an exhilarating fantasy quest from Adrian Tchaikovsky, the author of Guns at Dawn and the Shadows of the Apt series. Reviews and quotes 'Spiderlight is a creepy-crawly treat from the master of non-human heroes, a joy from beginning to end.' - Paul Cornell, author of Witches of Lychford and The Severed Streets '[Spiderlight] is a master class in subverting our expectations to surprise, engage, and deliver a fantastic story that works even when it isn't pulling the rug out from under us.' - Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi and Fantasy Blog 'Tchaikovsky clearly has a great deal of talent, and a real handle on the fantasy genre, with the ability to splice in different influences almost seamlessly.' -SciFi Now Magazine 'Occasionally a fantasy author comes up with a way to break the mould of traditional genre tropes: M. John Harrison'sViriconium and China Mieville's Perdido Street Station are two examples that immediately spring to mind. Tchaikovsky looks like a new addition to that select hall of fame.' -Death Ray Magazine 'Working in a small space, Tchaikovsky gives us sympathetic characters, real moral dilemmas, and emotional depth, all shot through with a sly humor that kept me grinning throughout. If, like me, you're a D&D fan who always wondered about the ethics of Detect Evil or what the orcs eat in Mordor, you will love this one.' - Django Wexler, author of the Shadow Campaigns series 'Subversive and classic, Spiderlight is a timeless adventure cranked up for the modern era of readers. A warship-rocker of an adventure, Adrian Tchaikovsky has struck another literary goldmine that's perfect for readers to dive into. Gripping and highly recommended.' - Jeremy Szal, Starship Sofa 'Spiderlight is a rip-roaring, old-fashioned heroic fantasy romp that also messes playfully with some of the genre's more outdated conventions... a breathless rush that never outstays its welcome.' - Dirge Mag 'Spiderlight will take you on a ride directly through straight fantasy and into the realms of the really fantastic... a brilliantly original novel.' - Geek Syndicate 'A must-read for all fans of fantasy. Very highly recommended.' - Civilian Reader 'In a world of large epic fantasy series with mushy pacing and a lack of focus, Spiderlight is as sharp as a spider's fang, as tight as its webbing, and as multifaceted as its gaze.' - Skiffy & Fanty 'A very fun, creepy quest tale with some quirky and engaging adventurers.' - Bull Spec At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
