Stover's Heroes Die is an excellent- if brutal and rather vulgar- book. Unfortunately the series takes a downhill turn from there; I didn't like Blade of Tyshalle at all.

The third book snaps back and forth between the present and the adventure that originally made Caine a superstar. Neither one is fully satisfying, although it's an improvement on Blade of Tyshalle. Unfortunately it also ends halfway through the story, so you'll be waiting for book #4 to find out how it ends.

Only Heroes Die works as a standalone. If you haven't read it or the second book, you'll have no clue what's going on. My recommendation is to try the excellent Heroes Die and decide if you want to wade into the rest of the series.
