Jeane, February 9, 2008 (view all comments by Jeane)
In Steven Brust's imagined world, Dragaera, aliens once visited the planet and genetically mixed humans with native animals, creating seventeen different humanoid forms and factions. They have special abilities, live to be hundreds of years, and are over seven feet tall. Normal humans are despised and on the bottom of society. Vlad Taltos is a human who inveigled his way into one of the lower factions, the House of Jhereg. He becomes a successful assassin, using disreputable methods of sorcery and the dangerous companionship of a dragon-like jhereg as protection and leverage. These fantastic stories are all about a mafia-like organization, crime, intrigue, power struggles and death duels, with animal figures and magic on the side. Written fluidly, with humorous observations by the young, ambitious Vlad, this book is enjoyable even for readers who aren't usually into the murder-and-mayhem type.

This book contains the first three volumes in the wonderfully entertaining Vlad Taltos series. Buy it, read it, you'll be deliciously happy that you did.
