Salute the Dark (Shadows of the Apt, Book 4)

Adrian Tchaikovsky


The vampiric sorcerer Uctebri has finally bought his arms at the Shadow field and will ultimately start his darkish ritual—a ritual that the Wasp-kinden Emperor believes will furnish him immortality—but Uctebri has his personal plans for either the Emperor and the Empire. The massed Wasp armies are at the march, and the spymaster Stenwold needs to see which of his allies will stand now that the battle has eventually arrived. This time the Empire won't cease till a black and gold flag waves over Stenwold’s own residence urban of Collegium.

Tisamon the Weaponsmaster is confronted with a bad selection: a course that can lead him to desert his acquaintances and his daughter, to stand degradation and loss, that would most likely carry him sooner than the Wasp Emperor with a blade in his hand—but is he being pushed via Mantis-kinden honor, or manipulated by means of anything extra sinister?
