Why read it?

1 author picked Elder Race as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

I love Adrian Tchaikovski’s work—it feels real. He brings a tremendous level of research to many of his novels, married with a wicked creativity, and it makes his novels unique.

If you want to try a quick read that marries science and magic in a novel, smile-inducing way, read Elder Race.
