By Adrian Tchaikovsky
Spiderlight by Adrian Tchaikovsky digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

Spiderlight is an exhilarating fantasy quest from Adrian Tchaikovsky, the author of Guns at Dawn and the Shadows of the Apt series.

The path to victory will only be seen through a spider's eyes...

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…

“Sadly this was a little underwhelming for me. I sincerely appreciate the craft that went into characterizations, the nuances and subtlety with which is character is shaped in a way that both undermines and upholds the classic fantasy tropes, but it was just a little too on-the-nose for me. The problem is this is a little too close to Abercrombie’s shtick and the latter does it much better because his characters really jump off the page and his themes may hit you over the head with a hammer but sometimes they’re much more subtle and nuanced than you’d expect. I think that’s why the arc of tension was completely missing for me. Who are the characters behind the facade of a classic raiding party? Well, not who they seem meaning that the seeming assholes are nicer than they look and vice versa. What is the big secret of the quest? Quests are stupid. It was exceedingly predictable. The confrontation with the big Bad excited me not one bit. I confess I didn’t expect either the characterization of the cleric (one of the most neatly done I’ve ever read and an excellent development of the psychological impact of being the prophesied one on both the person concerned and those around them) or the flourish at the end, but that didn’t make up the general lackluster direction, imo. It was a mistake to read it so soon after Ogres.”
“Me ha encantado. Es como un RPG de fantasía clásica pero en novela, básicamente, y a mí que me gustan tanto esas cosas, pues lo he disfrutado un montón. Además, se exploran ciertas reflexiones sobre la Luz y la Oscuridad que me ha encantado leer. Los personajes son un típico grupo de héroes RPG, que me han arrancado más de una sonrisa a lo largo del libro. Pero entre todos ellos, mi personaje favorito ha sido el más original y complejo: Enth. ¡Lo que me ha gustado leerlo! Y bueno, Lief también me ha gustado mucho. En fin, en general una lectura que he disfrutado muchísimo, con guiños al género y una forma de narrar que me ha gustado mucho. Muy recomendable para quienes nos gustan los juegos de rol de fantasía (ya sea en videojuego o en tablero), la fantasía clásica, y en general para cualquiera aunque no esté familiarizado con nada de lo anterior, ya que es muy ameno de leer, entretenido y accesible.”
