Author: Adrian Tchaikovsky
Set in a world in another galaxy, where the inhabitants have been genetically modified to take on the aspects of insects. Wasps, bees, mantids, moths, beetles. Each race with their own traits. Like a fly who can not see glass, some people are "not apt" and can not understand technology. Even something as simple as opening a door is beyond them. The world is changing as the "technologically apt" species are growing more numerous, old wars arise again and technology may not help this time.

Many different human races are described with each their individual personalities, lots of sub plots and quests. The series is at least 7 books, so it should keep you busy a decent while.

The plot does not surprise. It's straightforward to the point where you can expect certain situations to unfold a certain way a good while before they actually happen in the book.
