Steven Brust's tale of Vlad the assassin continues. Vlat Taltos, sorcerer (sometime witch) and (ex)-assassin, (plus his two faithful jhereg)now take on the biggest hitters of Vlad's (previous) assassin's guild, the House of the Jhereg. And Vlad thought he could retire in peace . . .
Never thought I'd feel sympathetic to/with a character whose occupation was 'killer for hire', but Vlad is a strangely compelling figure. Well written; great fun.

This is the 6th book in the The Vlad Taltos Series. A must read for fans of the series but a future read for those who are just entering it.

The pace is relaxed, without being slow, and builds to a climactic ending with consequences for everyone. A very well done effort from Brust, it was almost like reading about Vlad for the first time due to the change of viewpoint.

Another good book in the Vlad series. Takes on yet another person's view during the course of the action, in addition to Vlad.
