Fun and interesting read. Vlad Taltos is an assassin and a witch, not to mention a smart ass. He accepts a contract to kill someone, only to discover he's damned if he does, and damned if he doesn't. What to do? First remember "There is no substitute for good manners except fast reflexes."

Wise-cracking mobster/assassin/witch/sorceror journeys the Halls of the Dead and ticks off his wife while trading ironic quips with his mini dragon familiar(s).

Vlad Taltos is the main character of these stories, which jump around to various points in his sordid life as a hired assasin, mob boss, and errand boy for his patron Goddess. Vlad and his familiar--a leathery winged jherig--somehow manage to bluff and wise-crack their way through every dangerous situation the author throws at them. I only mildly enjoyed this adventure, which seemed to jump around a lot. Vlad is a man's man, and his blunt ways were not to my taste, but those who enjoy gritty fantasy stories with snide humor would like this one.

This book clears away all the questions you have if you started with the other books. I'd say Taltos should be the first book to read before all the others since it tells you a lot of himself from childhood to killerhood. This books is so, so good.. you just can't put it down!!
