Tiassa (2011)

9/10Actually, about 9.5/10. I couldn't quite give it a 10 because of the time jumps... the Vlad Taltos series' internal chronology does not follow the publication order of the books and so I always spend a bit of time deciding where in the overall story arc each book fits. And this book, unlike m...

Iorich (2010)

Another in the series, great weekend escapist read! ITs very good, pulls more of a quirky humour out and would add a lot for any who reads

My Own Kind of Freedom: A Firefly Novel (2008)

Characterization felt spotless and consistent. Storyline was clear and well paced. There was enough intricacy to prevent a linear flow to the story without getting in it's own way. It read like an episode of the series, but if shot would lose a lot of the flavor that Steven added with the charac...

Agyar (2004)

My feelings about this book was very mixed throughout, and how I felt about Jack kept wavering between amusement/neutral and disgust.Anyway. This book was very heartily recommended to me by someone whose opinion I value. You'll love it, he said. Well, "love" is a strong word. Let's just say I...

He is alone, far away from his big cities, with only his jhereg companions.Athyra: Vlad Taltos doesn't believe in coincidence so when a man that he once knew dies just as he arrive...

Sethra Lavode (2005)

reviews.metaphorosis.com2 starsThe rebel Kana is challenging Zerika's nascent reign. Khaavren and friends (and his son and his friends) try to save the day.I've previously been a big fan of Brust's writing, but I found The Paths of the Dead, the first part of Brust's Viscount of Adrilankha sub-tr...

Five Hundred Years After (1995)

Whether you like this book or not is very dependent on how much you can deal with a rather overwhelming parody joke. The following is an example of a typical piece of dialogue:"I have an idea!""An idea?""Yes, an idea.""And is it a good idea?""I believe it is in fact a very splendid idea.""I would...

Issola (2001)

And here's where it hits me that I don't know if I missed something, to blame Verra, or to narrow my eyes at Brust. I just know that when Vlad took off from the City, he wore a black phoenix stone. Here, he has something that seems to be a black one and gold one together. Since they're not so ...

The Phoenix Guards (1992)

Swashbuckling adventure! Sinister plots against the Empire! Will good friends, honor and friendliness prevail?In all reviewer honesty, I've had this book for a number of years now (fine; since I bought the paperback release in 1992. Yes, Grasshopper, I'm that old) and have re-read it more than a...

Yendi (1987)

YendiI was midly disappointed by Yendi, the second book in The Vlad Taltos series. Contrary to Jhereg, where I was immediately pulled inside the story, things were much slower in Yendi. A quarter or even half the book felt like Brust (the author) was merely listing a series of action instead of t...

Teckla (2015)

4.0 to 4.5 stars. The above quote just about perfectly sums up the tone and style of Steven Brust's JHEREG novels...playfully dark, coolly subdued and dangerously a word YUMMMMMM!! Seriously, I am pretty smitten with Brust's breezy style and this series is currently on a very shor...

The Book of Taltos (2002)

"I sometimes wonder if my entire adult life has been spent in an effort to avoid dirty dishes. One could, I suppose, have worse goals" p 7. Smiles are reasons to read, not really criminal not-hero. "Ummm" p 21 blunders, "I never have understood" why grandad insists no blood sacrifice to gods p 41...

The Book of Jhereg (1999)

φάνταζι νουάρ, με φοβερές ιδέες. Ήρωας είναι ο Vlad Taltos, ένας Εasterner (σαν ανθρώπους τους παρουσιάζει), που από κόλλημα του πατέρα του καταλήγει να είναι Dragaeran πολίτης (αυτούς τους παρουσιάζει λίγο σαν ξωτικά). Οι Dragaerans είναι χωρισμένοι σε 17 Οίκους, με ονόματα που παραπέμπουν σε ζώ...

Cowboy Feng's Space Bar and Grille (2003)

A group of folk musicians find themselves in a bar. The city the bar is in gets nuked, but somehow the bar jumps to another city in another time and place in the galaxy. Sometime later, the new city is nuked again. Who is doing this, and why? And what does it have to do with great cooking, tr...

Athyra (1993)

This was my least favourite of the Vlad Taltos books so far, although it was still decent. That’s really how you can tell how strong this series is, because this is easily the weakest in the first six and it’s still good. Unfortunately, I feel I have to compare it to the other books in the same s...
