Vlad Taltos is an Easterner--an underprivileged human in an Empire of tall, powerful, long-lived Dragaerans. He made a career for himself in House Jhereg, the Dragaeran clan in charge of the Empire's organized crime. But the day came when the Jhereg wanted Vlad dead, and he's been on the run ever since. He has plenty of friends among the Dragaeran highborn, including an undead wizard and a god or two. But as long as the Jhereg have a price on his head, Vlad's life is...messy.Meanwhile, for years, Vlad's path has been repeatedly crossed by Devera, a small Dragaeran girl of indeterminate powers who turns up at the oddest moments in his life.Now Devera has appeared again--to lead Vlad into a mysterious, seemingly empty manor overlooking the Great Sea. Inside this structure are corridors that double back on themselves, rooms that look out over other worlds, and--just maybe--answers to some of Vlad's long-asked questions about his world and his place in it. If only Devera can be persuaded to stop disappearing in the middle of his conversations with her...Full of swordplay, peril, and swashbuckling flair, Vallista is a treat for longtime fans of this popular fantasy series, a deep dive into the mysteries of Dragaera and all within it.… (mais)

Vlad gets trapped in a very strange house to save Devera, a young Dragaeran (elven) girl who he has some ties to via her family. He has to figure out the mystery of the very strange house and how to get Devera out. This book is just pure Vlad being Vlad, which I always enjoy. It ties in well with the previous books and Vlad's somehow involvement with how Dragaeran society works.

At lot of the book is Vlad thinking to himself, or Loiosh, his mini-dragon familiar, but there's nothing wrong with that. Well written and interesting, though not an action thriller. I was happy to hear Vlad's voice in my head again, Brust does a great job writing it. ( )

I won't say this is my favorite of the Vlad Taltos series, but when it comes to my ongoing need to re-immerse myself in the world that Brust has made, it's a solid addition... maybe not so much in the earlier bits, but when the mystery-fantasy begins unfolding, I really got into it.

That being said, Vlad goes time-hopping.

No, he's not becoming a god. He's still on the run and he has his friend-turned-into-a-sword and his two dragons within him. He just happens to have his mysterious disappearing friend send him on a mission to a mansion that happens to be WONKY as hell. You know, big magics, big mysteries, and a chance for Vlad to hop around all his old stomping grounds and other places he'd never been.

Fun? Sure! Resolved very well? Yep!

Somewhat a light adventure that kinda wraps up in a single sitting and we can promptly forget about it despite a number of BIG themes that have already been developed in the previous 14 novels? Yes.

Let me make this clear. Vlad, for me, has always been about a beautifully drawn worldbuilding experience with many races and many places, a funny assassin with an even funnier pet psychic dragon who joins him on every quest, and the magic. Lots of magic.

This is kinda light on the worldbuilding this time. The new places are fun tho. :)

Still gonna keep up with this series and see where it leads. Should be a full 17 book cycle, each focusing on a single theme on the fun pictorial wheel provided in the text. :) ( )

This is something of a closed house murder mystery that Vlad has to solve. It's entertaining but not as good as previous installments of the series. I miss the inclusion of Vlad's usual cast of unusual friends and acquaintances.

NOTE: While this novel is a complete story, new readers will miss out on references to previous books in the series. ( )
  ElentarriLT | Mar 24, 2020 |
Puzzle solving for protagonists but reader is limited in too many way to allow full participation. culture alien, time and space distortion physics, sorcery, necromancers, gods and demons, smoke and mirrors, etc. 334 pages for what could have been an effective novellet. ( )
  scottshjefte1 | Sep 6, 2019 |
I love this series, but this book was not one of my favorites. The entire story takes place in a single location, and it's a very slow and confusing build to the finale. And once you get to the end, it feels like the overall series just didn't progress very much, if at all. It had some entertaining parts to it, but in the end, this was definitely filler material. ( )
