Once, Vlad Taltos knew his trade: he killed people for a living. That skill got him his foothold in House Jhereg, running the rackets for a chunk of urban Adrilankha. Later, things happened that left Vlad a changed man, on the run from the Jhereg and frequently involved in the affairs of Dragonlords, Empresses, and even Jenoine. Far more involved than the average human. Meanwhile, in the very distant past, one of the gods fashioned an artifact - a silver figurine of a tiassa, a winged panther-like animal.
To Devera the Wanderer, it’s a pretty toy to play with. To Vlad, it’s a handy prop for a con he’s running. To the Empire, it’s a tool to be used against the Jenoine. And to the Jhereg, it’s a trap to kill Vlad. As it happens, however, the silver tiassa has its own agenda.
Tiassa tells a story that threads its way through more than ten years of the remarkable life of Vlad Taltos - and, to the delight of longtime fans, brings him together with Khaavren, from The Phoenix Guards and its sequels. Khaavren may be Vlad’s best friend - or his most terrible enemy.

Wow. I love this series, but this book is SO boring i found myself not remembering what happened the chapter before. I see what he was trying to get at in the writing, by writing from the 'Historian' POV, but the fact that very little happens the entire book kills it. I generally love his voice, but man, this one was bad. I only gave it two stars because of how much i like the rest of the series and the reader.
Vlad. Who's almost non-existant in this book.
Most of the rest. They aren't memorable.
More books in the series, please. Don't leave us with this taste in our mouths.
