Производитель: "Macmillan Publishers"

Third novel in his enthralling Shadows of the Apt sequence of epic fantasy adventures. Driven by the ghosts of the Darakyon, Achaeos has tracked the stolen Shadow Box to the marsh-town of Jerez, but he has only days before the magical box is lost to him forever. Meanwhile, the forces of the Empire are mustering over winter for their great offensive, gathering their soldiers and perfecting their new weapons. Stenwold and his followers have only a short time to gather what allies they can before the Wasp armies march again, conquering everything in their path. If they cannot throw back the Wasps this spring then the imperial black-and-gold flag will fly over every city in the Lowlands before the year`s end. In Jerez begins a fierce struggle over the Shadow Box, as lake creatures, secret police and renegade magicians compete to take possession. If it falls into the hands of the Wasp Emperor, however, then no amount of fighting will suffice to save the world from his relentless ambition.

Biography

Czajkowski was born in Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire. He now lives in Leeds with his wife Annie and son Alex.[2][3] He is represented by Simon Kavanagh from the Mic Cheetham agency.[4] After fifteen years of trying to get published Czajkowski obtained his first break in 2008.[5] That year Empire in Black and Gold was published by Tor (UK) - an imprint of Pan Macmillan - in the United Kingdom. The series was later picked up for publication in America by Pyr Books. He has stated in his blog, that he chose to publish under the name Tchaikovsky, as the spelling of his given name could have caused potential difficulties for American and British readers in both spelling and pronunciation. This is a common marketing approach in both UK and US publishing industries, where the publishers feel a name should be altered to help sales. Subsequently the American and German editions of the book and its sequels were published under the same name. Czajkowski expressed desire that the Polish editions of his novels be printed under his real name,[6] but these too used "Tchaikovsky".[7]

Bibliography

Shadows of the Apt series

Setting

The series is set in a hypothetical universe populated by different kinden. Each kinden is a humanoid race, named after (and having the characteristics of) an insect. Kinden are typically divided into two categories : Apt and Inapt. The Apt do not have magical abilities, but are able to understand, use and design mechanical devices. The Inapt have varying amounts of magical abilities, but cannot use mechanical devices, even those as simple as latches. The series focuses on the attempted conquest of the lowlands by the Wasp-kinden empire.

Novels

The list of novels in the series is as follows:[8][9]

Notes

Shadows of the Apt is divided into 4-book arcs, each covering the same setting and characters, but moving along a new plot change or story line.

The books are primarily published every 6 months, with a confirmed total of 10 books.
