Publisher's Summary

Tales of the Apt is a companion series to the best-selling decalogy Shadows of the Apt (Tor UK), gathering together short stories from disparate places and supplementing them with a wealth of new tales written especially for the series.

Shame the narrators were different.

I am a huge fan of Adrian Tchaikovsky books generally, and the only ones I dislike are those with narrators I find difficult to listen to.

Ben Allen, who has narrated all of the Empire of Black and Gold series is one of a kind, and carries each great story to further heights.
While these narrators were quite good, they changed some of the accents used for different kindens of the Empire, and none of them have quite the versatility or breadth of emotional resonance that brings the characters so wonderfully to life.

Other than that, these stories were an added insight into the world of some of the background characters, and enjoyable enough.
