Synopsis

By Adrian Tchaikovsky, author of the Arthur C. Clarke Award-winning novel Children of Time, Heirs of the Blade is the seventh part in the epic fantasy series Shadows of the Apt.

The greatest foe is the enemy within . . .

Tynisa is running, but she cannot escape the demons of her own mind. Amidst the fragmenting provinces of the Dragonfly Commonweal her past will at last catch up with her. Her father's ghost is hunting her down.

At the same time, the Empress, Seda is on the move, and her eyes are on the city of Khanaphes, the fallen jewel of the ancient world. Whilst her soldiers seek only conquest, she sees herself as the heir to all the old powers of history, and has her eyes on a far greater prize.
