Tiassa is really three separate stories each with relevance to past books; it fills in some loose ends bringing more clarity to past stories. The last part of Tiassa is about the title and also fills in some gaps from a previous story line but also brings us back to the present.
Most of Steven Brust’s stories are told in first person with the main character Vlad Taltos as the narrator; Tiassa is told mostly in third person having other characters tell the tale. I believe this gives the series a little more depth and for one book I found the dialogue and the perspective interesting; but I would miss Vlad’s humor and charm if he were not back for the next book in this series.
I would highly recommend reading/listening to the other books in this series before using a credit on this one as there are too many references to past books.
I have listened to the entire series and having read some of the earlier books long ago would heartily recommend the audio version. Bernard Setaro Clark is a true professional and a great narrator.

If you listen to 11/12 in the Taltos series switch to the Khaavren Romances/ The Viscount of Adrilankha series (5 books in all), then back to this one or the one before(Yes a little late, I know but it will still work).
Fair Waring. they are stylized and hard to get through for some folks (my self included) but it gets easier and then pretty good.
Seriously there are a bunch of jokes and other things you just wouldn't get otherwise.
