Issola

Issola Review

Okay, so maybe I've been living in the woods too long, where you can't even get a decent cup of klava first thing in the morning. So who should turn up but Lady Teldra, the courtly servant of my old friend the Dragonlord Morrolan?

Teldra wants my help, because Morrolan and Aliera have disappeared, and according to Sethra Lavode, it looks like they may be in the hands of the Jenoine. Do I want to mess with them? The guys who made this place? And I thought I had problems before...

Oh well, what's a little cosmic battle with beings who control time and space? It's better than hunkering down in the woods without even so much as a drinkable cup of klava.

    Some Testimonial About This Book:

  • Bradley

    I didn't expect this book to go where it went. Seriously. Wow.It takes place as the latest, chronologically, with Vlad in the wilds in exile, but it just goes to show, you never know where you'll wind...

    REREAD (SEPT 2014)Not much to add to the below. The scaling issue remains a major problem, but it's partially made up for by getting to know Lady Teldra better.-----------(Original review Aug 2006)Ove...

    This was a pleasant read, and Vlad’s narration is amusing, as always. I enjoyed Vlad's odd partnership with Lady Teldra.But the story was just not my cup of tea. It’s too abstract: an incomprehens...

    3.5 stars.“I miss the days when I used to be nostalgic.” ~Vlad TaltosI’ve been slightly disappointed with the last few novels in Steven Brust’s VLAD TALTOS series, but with Issola, book 9, Bru...

    More Vlad!This is an unusual Vlad book in how, well, usual it is. That is, there's nothing weird going on structurally or plot-wise; it's a fairly straightforward quest story. There's an ancient evil ...

    In trying to remember what I had and hadn't read in this series, I ended up re-reading Issola. I'm not usually terribly enthused by the epic powerful heroes having epic powerful battles that shake the...
