Publisher Description

"A Ursula Le Guin-like grace... Ten out of 10." —New York Times


In Adrian Tchaikovsky's Elder Race, a junior anthropologist on a distant planet must help the locals he has sworn to study to save a planet from an unbeatable foe.


Lynesse is the lowly Fourth Daughter of the queen, and always getting in the way.

But a demon is terrorizing the land, and now she’s an adult (albeit barely) with responsibilities (she tells herself). Although she still gets in the way, she understands that the only way to save her people is to invoke the pact between her family and the Elder sorcerer who has inhabited the local tower for as long as her people have lived here (though none in living memory has approached it).

But Elder Nyr isn’t a sorcerer, and he is forbidden to help, and his knowledge of science tells him the threat cannot possibly be a demon…

Another win

Definitely one of my new favorite novels! I love the way Tchaikovsky builds the backstory and the melding of fantasy and sci-fi. Can’t wait for more in this universe

Great fun

Thoroughly enjoyed this novella. One of the best and most original stories I’ve read in 2021!

Fantastic

Really great—faced paced, thought provoking and fun! Compares very well to Children of Time and better than Children of Ruin!
