| Spiderlight by Adrian Tchaikovsky |
It seems like only yesterday I was gushing over the cover for The Tiger and the Wolf – the forthcoming title by Adrian Tchaikovsky (which is brilliant! Review out soon!) – and here we are with a new book close to hand! Tor US have just revealed the wonderfully creepy (crawly) cover for Spiderlight, a brand new fantasy novel which comes out this August. Illustrated by Tyler Jacobson and designed by Christine Foltzer, Spiderlight conveys a distinctly dark and atmospheric impression for what promises to be another fantastic novel by this master of speculative fiction.

Tor US – 2nd August 2016
| Synopsis |
The Church of Armes of the Light has battled the forces of Darkness for as long as anyone can remember. The great prophecy has foretold that a band of misfits, led by a high priestess will defeat the Dark Lord Darvezian, armed with their wits, the blessing of the Light and an artifact stolen from the merciless Spider Queen.
Their journey will be long, hard and fraught with danger. Allies will become enemies; enemies will become allies. And the Dark Lord will be waiting, always waiting…
Spiderlight is an exhilarating fantasy quest from Adrian Tchaikovsky, the author of Guns at Dawn and the Shadows of the Apt series.
What do you think of the cover for Spiderlight? Does this sound like something you would read?
