Issola - Steven Brust

Vlad is still on the lam, when, to his surprise, the Lady Teldra turns up. Aliera and Morrolan have vanished, and the high and mighty of Dragaera again need Vlad's help. They go off to visit the mightiest, Sethra Lavode.

They trace Morrolan thanks to Spellbreaker, and find out the Jenoine have him. When Teldra tries to make a deal, they agree. They are happy to let them go, as long as Vlad kills the goddess Verra.

In this book, we learn the nature of reality and why Dragaera exists, and the forces that are at work around it.

The book ends in a serious battle, as the gods, Sethra, Vlad, Morrolan, Teldra and others have to face the Jenoine, and the battle doesn't go too well, in one respect.

Vlad does gain a Great Weapon.

4.5 out of 5
