| The Tiger and the Wolf by Adrian Tchaikovsky |
Would you just take a look at this beautiful cover. Tor UK has just revealed the cover art for The Tiger and the Wolf, the first book in the new Echoes of the Fall series by Adrian Tchaikovsky. If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you’ll probably have guessed I’m a huge fan of Mr. Tchaikovsky’s writing – his Shadows of the Apt series is absolutely phenomenal – and this reveal has just reminded me that I not only have his latest fantasy book Guns of Dawn to read but also a brand new sci fi epic – Children of Time! Bring on the Tchaikovskys! Take a look at this beauty and see what you think.

| Synopsis |
In the bleak northern crown of the world, war is coming
Maniye’s father is the Wolf clan’s chieftain, but she’s an outcast. Her mother was queen of the Tiger and these tribes have been enemies for generations. Maniye also hides a deadly secret. All can shift into their clan’s animal form, but Maniye can take on tiger and wolf shapes. She can’t disown half her soul, so escapes – with the killer Broken Axe in pursuit.
Maniye’s father plots to rule the north, and controlling his daughter is crucial to his schemes. However, other tribes also prepare for strife. It’s a season for omens as priests foresee danger, a time of testing and broken laws. Some say a great war is coming, overshadowing even Wolf ambitions. But what spark will set the world ablaze?
