Dragonfly Falling is the second novel, following Empire in Black and Gold, in the richly imagined Shadows of the Apt series by Adrian Tchaikovsky.

Every hero must be tested . . .

The armies of the Wasp Empire are on the march, and first to feel their might will be the city of Tark, which is even now preparing for siege. Within its walls Salma and Totho must weather the storm, as the Ant-kinden take a stand - against numbers and weaponry such as the Lowlands have never seen.

And after his earlier victory, the Empire's secret service has decided veteran artificer Stenwold Maker is too dangerous to live. So disgraced Major Thalric is despatched on a desperate mission, not only to eliminate Stenwold himself, but to bring about the destruction of his beloved city of Collegium, and thus end all hope of intelligent resistance to the remorseless imperial advance.

While the Empire's troops are laying waste to all in their way, the young Emperor himself is treading a different path. His thoughts are on darker things than mere conquest, and if he attains his goal he will precipitate a reign of blood that will last a thousand years.

As good as the first one technically, but taking a star off for defining a character by and only their mental illness. Thanks but no thanks.

3.0 Imperium atakuje (Adrian Tchaikovsky "Klęska ważki")
Twórcy literatury fantastycznej uwielbiają pisać cykle. I w przeciwieństwie do autorów kryminałów, którzy wprawdzie tworzą kolejne tomy z tymi samymi bohaterami, ale z oddzielnymi sprawami, co pozwala na potraktowanie każdego utworu jako odrębnej całości, w fantastyce poszczególne tomy są ze sobą śc...

Nutshell: survivor of genocide uses general belligerence involving all prior protagonists as cover to retrieve numinous object.The number and variety of perspectives increases beyond the point of easy management in this volume. Narrative twists and turns like a twisty turny thing as the plot assim...

4.0 Dragonfly Falling (Shadows of the Apt #2)
whoo! This was good! The wasp empire rolls over an ant city, allows another ant city to invade Collegium [which beats them off with help of allies right the end], Totho [the halfbreed in love with Cheerwell Maker] turns traitor and joins the empire, lots of fighting, lots of cool exploring the world...
