Publisher's Summary

The Scarab Path is the fifth book in the critically acclaimed epic-fantasy series Shadows of the Apt by Adrian Tchaikovsky.

Ancient powers are waking....

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 broken in ways no doctor can mend, haunted by ghosts of the past. Meanwhile, the powerful Wasp Empress is regaining control over those imperial cities that refused to bow to her. But she draws her power from something more sinister than armies and war machines. 

Only her consort, the former spymaster Thalric, knows the truth. As assassins seek to end him, he finds his life and his loyalties under threat once again. And in an ancient city beyond the desert, a terrible secret stirs beneath its stones.

The Scarab Path is followed by the sixth book in the Shadows of the Apt series, The Sea Watch.

Best one so far

I’m found the series beginning to stale a bit. This book saved it for me with a new storyline.

Another Banger!

10/10 Would siege again!! Takes it's time setting everything up but ends up being a pretty important story for a few key characters. The ant folk can be infuriating but the book honestly explains their behavior fairly well.
