Re-read. There's a lot of interesting backstory here, but as a story, it doesn't feel at all satisfying.

Re-read again, Feb 2012. I find myself not fully convinced by the friendliness of Vlad and Teldra.

Re-read again, January 2013. The mytharc stuff is great, but the idea that Teldra is (view spoiler) is told but really shown.
