READ ï Spiderlight Lord Darvezian armed with their wits the blessing of the Light and an artifact stolen from the merciless Spider ueenTheir journey will be long hard and fraught with danger Allies will become enemies; e. I ve got a special place in my heart for all things DD All I needed was one look at this book s cover and blurb to convince me to buy Spiderlight to be honest I m that easily swayedOn the surface this is the exact story I was expecting the one that I ve read a million times by now It s very clear that Tchaikovsky generously borrowed some of the bigger DD tropes to set up what is an immensely traditional fantasy world Here he uses the sub genre s concept of alignment There are creatures of the dark that are born evil and there are creatures of the light that are born good and the two are always at war So yeah the typical and stock DD setting The plot driving the narrative is also very familiar There s a band of ragtag heroes our main characters adventuring across the land to kill a great evil lord who has been causing a lot of trouble in their world It s that same story we ve heard over and over and over again But really a story doesn t have to be original to be brilliant It s in the way the familiar is retold that can make something special And oh boy was Spiderlight specialFrankly the simplicity of Spiderlight really DOESN T MATTER because Adrian Tchaikovsky is an author that has clearly read a great deal of fantasy and has noticed so many of its problems He s noticed the whitewashed characters the lack of well written women the one dimensional moralities the same tired motivations of the villains to name a few Yes he uses the typical fantasy formulatemplate but in his execution he sufficiently takes it apart bit by bit That s what makes Spiderlight so different and so great It is epic fantasy deconstructedWhat impressed me the most were the characters The dialogue between them was sharp and laugh out loud funny but it s their marvelous inner moments of existential revelations that really wowed me In Spiderlight I found a shocking amount of depth hidden beneath what I initially believed to be another standard issue cast of fantasy heroes But throughout only 300 pages the author somehow gave himself space to expose the hidden parts of them in a way that did not feel forced but made me genuinely care for them And not only did he do this but he used an incredibly diverse tone of voice for each of them and made them feel real I was the most compelled by Nth a main character who is also a spider His extremely alien POV accomplished SO MUCH Through him the author got to explore the subtle truths about power and the destructive nature of humanity alongside some compelling introspection on what it means to be human or to even just have emotions and how it can sometimes completely warp reason It was fascinating and I was shocked when I realized how much I sympathized with himNot only was Nth a spider but he s also a slave being dragged along with the rest of the band and it was interesting to see someone forced to live in complete servitude to people who were completely unlike him and who were blinded to his true self and could never understand him He was seen and treated as a monster and labeled as evil because he s of the dark but we in his head knew the truth But we also got to see him through the others eyes and understand why they saw him that way I mean he IS a giant spider for crying out loud and I wouldn t like him either to be honest But really Tchaikovsky packed into 300 pages than a lot of authors do in an entire series and it s stunningI only came for classic DD storytelling and while this book could have easily been something totally predictable and forgettable it was instead spun into something fresh while still giving me enough of the genre s greatest hits to make me happy and satisfied If you ve read Nicholas Eames Kings of the Wyld this book might remind you of that About a month ago I didn t know this author even existed and I think it s a real shame that he doesn t get recognition and hype I m no arachnophobe but any author that can make my sympathize with a freaking SPIDER of all things must be immensely talented He s now got my full attention and I can t wait to try his other books I hear several of them also have spiders and I can t believe it but I m very excited about that 4 45 starsWould highly recommend Good Behavior kill a great evil lord who has been causing a lot of trouble in their world It s that same story we ve heard over and over and over again But really a

READ ï Spiderlight Nemies will become allies And the Dark Lord will be waiting always waiting Spiderlight is an exhilarating fantasy uest from Adrian Tchaikovsky the author of Guns at Dawn and the Shadows of the Apt serie. Spiderlight was a fun tale a vintage sword and sorcery story that hits on all the old tropesI have to admit to some trouble with the first half however plagued as I was by doubts as to the intentions behind it Was it a bad parody of old school fantasy or was it a wink and nod homage to the sameSeriously it felt as if Adrian Tchaikovsky pulled out his old roleplaying books rolled himself a few characters pulled up a few monsters and then let his inner dungeon master run free with the mayhem These aren t just characters they re character classes wizard cleric warrior rogue with spells cast and weapons wielded according to the rules of the game There were so many echoes of Weis and Hickman Salvatore Greenwood Nile and Knaak that it actually became distractingWhere I finally got past that and was able to settle in and enjoy the tale was through the character of Nth Here we have one of those vintage monsters a giant spider whom the party wizard arrogantly transforms into something vaguely human He opens so many moral and ethical dilemmas making us uestion our stock assumptions of good versus evil that you don t realize how cleverly you ve been duped until the story s almost over Suddenly in those last few chapters it all comes together and the truth behind those intentions I doubted at the start are revealedYes it s horribly cliched in its construction incredibly awkward in its humor and almost painful in some of its dialogue but all deliberately so It takes some patience and reuires some trust that there is indeed a method to Tchaikovsky s madness but it all pays off in the end Originally reviewed at Beauty in Ruins Disclaimer I received a complimentary ARC of this title from the publisher in exchange for review consideration This does not in any way affect the honesty or sincerity of my review

READ ï Spiderlight 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. It starts like a classic uest with a party determined to kill the Dark Lord but becomes decidedly unusual when the uesters turn a giant spider into a human because they need a guide into the Dark Lord s territory The spider human Nth gets a crash course in what it means to be human and everyone else a crash course on uests and Dark Lords and why they shouldn t be trustedIt s by turns laugh out humorous and heartbreaking the chapters from Nth s point of view in particular convey what it means to be completely alone and uniue and I really like the way Tchaikovsky gives each member of the party a relatable personality without turning them into clich s And the ending while not unexpected was touching and struck just the right note A very satisfying and uickly devoured read
