The Paths of the Dead - Steven Brust

Paarfi the Historian continues his writings, and this time, his subject is the events of the period of approximately two centuries after Adron's disaster blew up a whole lot of Dragaera.

For those that have read any of Vlad Taltos' books some of this will be more familiar, with Zerika, Sethra Lavode, and others.

The starring roles go to the next generation. Khaavren's son and his friends are bored, they think no more adventure is ever going to happen.

A war for the empire and the various machinations of deities and sorceresesses soon show them that things are not so dull after all.
