"Includes all the action, romance, and pathod of its predecessors
"The Phoenix Guards", "Five Hundred Years After", "The Paths of the
Dead", and "The Lord of Castle Black"...There's no denying Brust's
fine pacing and worldbuilding and his sheer pizzazz." --"Booklist
"on "Sethra Lavode"
"Watch Steven Brust. He's good. He moves fast. He surprises you. Watching him untangle the diverse threads of intrigue, honor, character and mayhem from amid the gears of a world as intricately constructed as a Swiss watch is a rare pleasure." --Roger Zelazny
"Steven Brust might just be America's best fantasy writer!" --Tad Williams
"Delightful, exciting and sometimes brilliant, Steven Brust is the latest in a line of great Hungarian writers, which (I have no doubt) includes Alexandre Dumas, C.S. Forester, Mark Twain, and the author of the juciest bits of the Old Testament." --Neil Gaiman
"Brust is incapable of writing a dull book." --"Booklist "on "Paths of the Dead"
"Filled with high adventure, intrigues, a great deal of good humor and moments of genuine hilarity...It's rare for a book over 400 pages to seem as short as this one. It's even rarer to find one that seems likely to satisfy such a broad range of reader expectations, humor, adventure, intrigue, and wit all in the same package." --"Science Fiction Chronicle" on "Five Hundred Years After"
"As always, Brust invests Vlad with the panache of a Dumas musketeer and the colloquial voice of one of Zelazny's Amber heroes. This is a rousing adventure with enough humor, action and sneaky plot twists to please newcomers as well as longtime series fans." --Publishers Weekly on "Dragon"
"A splendid caper that welcomes newcomers, while existing fans will pounce." --Kirkus Reviews on "Dragon"
"No mere plot summary can describe accurately the fun and adventure that naturally seems to follow Vlad Taltos." --VOYA on "Issola"
