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.
