3.0 out of 5 stars A quick, unfulfilling read, 17 Sep 2010
This review is from: DZUR (Vlad Taltos) (Mass Market Paperback)
It's been a while since I've read a Taltos book and I have to say that this instalment in the series is not encouraging, especially after the excellent effort in Issola . Vlad is back in his old neighbourhood of South Adrilankha where his ex-wife needs some help as getting rid of the mob in that area has not helped in the way she thought it would.

This book has a few minor scenes that advance Vlad's story somewhat, but having said that you also get the impression that the author was more interested in writing his perfect restaurant scenes at the beginning of each chapter than he was with telling a satisfying story. One of the reasons I'm not quick to pick up books in this series these days is because it has dragged on so long over the years with the plot advancing and more interesting stories only appearing every few books. For me this was just a place marker instalment in the series and not one of the books in it I'd be in a hurry to read twice, like I did with the early books on Vlad, which were much more funny and interesting.
