GREAT BIG SERIES

Adrian segmented his insect-themed fantasy epic, so that the reader is getting payoff with each book, and also with each few books. The first four books form the first arc, then the next three are relatively stand-alone, and the last three comprise a final sequence to round things off, accelerating inevitably towards the final volume.

Finding new ways to stretch the genre is a boom industry at the moment and the insect-kinden stories, starting with Empire in Black and Gold, do something different with heroic/epic fantasy.
