The Vagrant and the City is set after The Malice, and continues the story - it is a separate story, but contains details and hints, and several plot hooks for the next book in the series (The Seven). The story follows The Vagrant as he takes on the role of Champion of the Shining City, investigating oddities in one of the outlying communities.

I enjoyed this; you certainly need to have the background from The Vagrant and The Malice, but this novella adds some more flavour to The Vagrant himself and fills out some of the city and the culture, as well as being an exciting plotline. It is definitely worth reading if you're waiting for The Seven!

I dove right into this novella after finishing The Malice and it was a joy. Because not only do we get a glimpse of how things stand about five years after the ending of The Malice, we also get a new story completely focused on the Vagrant. He remains a unique character and it made me remember how much I enjoyed him in the first book.

One of the things I truly enjoyed about The Vagrant was the way it portrayed parenthood and the challenges it offers. In The Malice we saw that the Vagrant and Harm had thrown themselves into raising Vesper whole-heartedly, perhaps taking that as their new mission. But with Vesper out on her own and a self-sufficient adult, the Vagrant is at somewhat at a loss. He’s lost his sense of purpose and being in the world. The Vagrant and the City is all about him finding that again. In a sense, this novella is about a parent’s empty nest syndrome and how they rediscovered their focus.

But it is also a fantastic adventure with high stakes, treason, a character you love to hate (I’m looking at you, Sir Heras) and not one, but two awesome sidekicks. I really liked that Newman keeps the Vagrant to his silent ways, even if we know that he can speak. His style of communication with both squires and Sir Heras were not only effective, they also offered some levity during the more tense exchanges. The Vagrant’s — or the Champion as he’s known once out on mission — bond with the two squires, Borz and Nama, was one I enjoyed a lot as he treats them as true pupils, not underlings the way Heras does. It is their reaction to the events of the story as much as Vesper’s request that seems to prompt his decision to truly take up the mantle of Champion.

I really enjoyed The Vagrant and the City.

The Vagrant is a singular book, one of my favourites. This short adds some wonderful detail and a charming reminder of everything I love about the series. If you're considering a purchase then you already enjoyed the earlier books. This tale only makes my anticipation of the trilogy's conclusion all the keener.

Besides being a good little story to hold us over these few months before the third book is released, there's info that amounts to a sneak peek of the next book. Well worth three bucks!

The vagrant is back! If you have read The Vagrant (and the second book, The Malice), just read this! if you don’t, you need to dive in these books to appreciate one of the most charismatic protagonists of sci-fi literature of recent years. And this is a wonderful short story in that world!
