Publisher's Summary

House Jhereg, Dragaera's organized crime syndicate, is still hunting Vlad Taltos. There's a big price on his head in Dragaera City. Then he hears disturbing news. Aliera - longtime friend, sometime ally - has been arrested by the Empire on a charge of practicing elder sorcery, a capital crime.

It doesn't make sense. Everybody knows Aliera's been dabbling in elder sorcery for ages. Why is the Empire down on her now? Why aren't her powerful friends - Morrolan, Sethra, the Empress Zerika - coming to her rescue? And most to the point, why has she utterly refused to do anything about her own defense?

It would be idiotic of Vlad to jump into this situation. He's a former Jhereg who betrayed the House. He's an Easterner - small, weak, short-lived. He's being searched for by the most remorseless killers in the world. Naturally, that's exactly why he's going to get completely involved....

Pronunciation

When Steven Brust began this series he included a guide to the correct pronunciation of the different houses and names that appear in the stories. The narrator would have been well served to have been made aware of this before recording his performance. I’m afraid his mispronunciations were distracting and served to reduce my enjoyment of the story.

Classic Vlad

This is the Vlad fans have waited for after many years journeying in a self-imposed exile. The story is compelling with the usual twists and the complications of family.

great... except

the story was amazing, as always, but most of the female voices sound the same as always. Besides that good performance.

Such an awesome series!

Just do it. You'll thank me later. Original. Complex but easy to follow. If you were a PoliSci major you will adore it. Breath of fresh air.

Your Itch

Another doozy from Master Brust. I've read the novel but it is so more interesting and fun to listen to it spoken out loud with accents, personalities and inflections.
I heartily recommend.
