Unlike other books in the Vlad Taltos series, Tiassa is a series of stories from multiple points on Vlad's timeline that all involve a silver tiassa figurine. In addition to skipping about in time, the novel also skips around in narrator voice, with one story from Vlad's estranged wife Catwi's perspective (finally!) and one from Khaavren from the Phoenix Guards companion stories. The storytelling is light and crisp for Vlad, moving more towards the silliness level of the Phoenix Guards. I tend to prefer Vlad's usual mix of wisecracking at desperation, but this was still good fun. If you're new to Brust, don't start here - this one would be confusing to folks unfamiliar with Vlad's history to date.
