I have increased the rating of this book after re-reading it. If the previous one did not satisfy me (The Paths of the Dead, in this one we recover the feeling of adventure, even if the main characters in the previous books take clearly a supporting role. The Dumas pastiche works very well, with sympathetic villains and a few despicable ones, fallible heroes, but heroes yet, and better rounded dialogue than others. It is still a very shallow book unless you are very interested in Brust imaginary worlds, but if you do, there are several gems and explanations for many aspects of the Vlad Taltos books.

Only recommended for those who are reading the series, as this book cannot stand alone.
