    Wow. What can I say. It's really something to follow a series and see an author grow - and Shadows of the Apt does not disappoint. Ok - the third book, Blood of the Mantis, was a bit of a stumble (the pacing felt a bit off when compared with the epic scale and non-stop action of Dragon Fly Falling) but this book picks up the pace and does not let up. What I found startling is just how much I love these characters. Tisamon, Stenwold, Thalric, Tynisa, Che... we have lived with these characters over the course of three novels - and with Salute the Dark, we really see them tested to the limit and... well, broken. This book feels very much like the Empire Strikes Back of the series; the heroes face their own personal demons, their weaknesses are exposed and - yes - there are casualties and life-changing sacrifices.

    The Scarab Path (Shadows of the Apt 5)

    The war with the Wasp Empire has ended in a bitter stalemate, and Collegium has nothing to show for it but wounded veterans. Cheerwell Maker finds herself crippled in ways no doctor can mend, haunted by ghosts of the past that she cannot appease, seeking for meaning in a city that no longer seems like home.
    The Empress Seda is regaining control over those imperial cities who refused to bow the knee to her, but she draws her power from something more sinister than mere armies and war machines. Only her consort, the former spymaster Thalric, knows the truth, and now the assassins are coming and he finds his life and his loyalties under threat yet again.
    Out past the desert of the Nem the ancient city of Khanaphes awaits them both, with a terrible secret entombed beneath its stones...

    Salute the Dark (Shadows of the Apt)
    The vampiric sorcerer Uctebri has at last got his hands on the Shadow Box and can finally begin his dark ritual - a ritual that the Wasp-kinden Emperor believes will grant him immortality. But Uctebri has his own plans both for the Emperor and the Empire.
    The massed Wasp armies are on the march, and the spymaster Stenwold must see which of his allies will stand now that the war has finally arrived. This time the Empire will not stop until a black and gold flag waves over Stenwold's own home city of Collegium.
    Tisamon the Weaponsmaster is faced with a terrible choice: a path that could lead him to abandon his friends and his daughter and to face degradation and loss. Yet it might bring him before the Wasp Emperor with a blade in his hand. But is he being driven by Mantis-kinden honour, or manipulated by something more sinister?

    The Sea Watch (Shadows of the Apt)
    A shadow is falling over Collegium. Despite the tenuous peace, Stenwold Maker knows that the Empire will return for his city. Even as he tries to prepare for the resurgence of the black and gold army, a hidden threat is working against his people. Ships that sail from Collegium's harbour are being attacked, sunk by pirates. Some just go missing . . .
    Lulled by the spread of lies and false promises, Stenwold's allies are falling away. He faces betrayal on every side, and the Empire is just waiting for the first sign of weakness to strike. But they are not the only power that has its eyes on Collegium. And even with all their military strength and technology, they may not be powerful enough to stave off the forces massing in the darkness.
