The long-awaited sequel to The Phoenix Guards and Five Hundred Years After.Two hundred years after Adron's Disaster, in which Dragaera City was accidentally reduced to an ocean of chaos by an experiment in wizardry gone wrong, the Empire isn't what it used to be. Deprived at a single blow of their Emperor, of the Orb that is the focus of the Empire's power, of their capital city with its Imperial bureaucracy, and of a great many of their late fellow citizens, the surviving Dragaerans have been limping through a long Interregnum, bereft even of the simple magic and sorcery they were accustomed to use in everyday life.Now the descendants and successors of the great ad-venturers Khaavren, Pel, Aerich, and Tazendra are growing up in this seemingly diminished world, convinced, like their elders, that the age of adventures is over and nothing interesting will ever happen to them. They are, of course, wrong.For even deprived of magic, Dragaerans fight, plot, and conspire as they breathe, and so do their still-powerful gods. The enemies of the Empire prowl at its edges, in-scrutable doings are up at Dzur Mountain...and, unexpectedly, a surviving Phoenix Heir, young Zerika, is discovered--setting off a chain of swashbuckling events that will remake the world yet again.… (mais)

Maybe I'm just getting tired of the writing style, but I had a lot more trouble paying attention to this one and caring enough to keep the characters straight (there are a lot in this one and not really enough time to get to know any of them). Maybe it will get better with the next two, I gather these three are really just one book broken into 3 for publication. ( )

The Paths of the Dead is the first book in Steven Brust??s THE VISCOUNT OF ADRILANKHA trilogy, which is a sequel to The Phoenix Guards and Five Hundred Years. Each of these books is an installment in Brustƒ??s KHAAVREN ROMANCES and theyƒ??re all related to his VLAD TALTOS books which, at this moment, consist of 13 novels. All of these books have just been released in audio format by Audible Frontiers. I picked up The Paths of the Dead after reading that it can stand alone. You might wonder why I started here and, honestly, itƒ??s because we already had reviews for some of the VLAD TALTOS novels and for The Phoenix Guards and Five Hundred Years but none for any of THE VISCOUNT OF ...

While I enjoyed the previous Paarfi books it is withe the three volumes of The Viscount of Adrilankha that I really began to appreciate what Brust was doing with this alternate voice. Each time I reread these books they seem even richer and deeper in character. ( )

The children of the heroes of Phoenix Guards set out to have adventures, and along the way discover new kinds of sorcery, all sorts of plots, and end up helping put the new Empress on the throne. At the same time, a 'young' Morrolan starts his career as a warlock.
Typical Brust, with a lot of sarcasm (did I say a lot?) and long running jokes and what passes for wit when you're on the road adventuring. Good stuff, if you like that sort of thing. Not excessively violent or face paced. Very dry at times, but that's part of the beauty of it. ( )

Paarfi the Historian continues his writings, and this time, his subject is the events of the period of approximately two centuries after Adron's disaster blew up a whole lot of Dragaera.

For those that have read any of Vlad Taltos' books some of this will be more familiar, with Zerika, Sethra Lavode, and others.

The starring roles go to the next generation. Khaavren's son and his friends are bored, they think no more adventure is ever going to happen.

A war for the empire and the various machinations of deities and sorceresesses soon show them that things are not so dull after all.
