1000 years earlier than the delivery of Vlad Taltos, the Dragaeran Empire is a hotbed of intrigue, sorcery, intrigue, swashbuckling experience, and intrigue. if you happen to will be heroes, it's a pleasant time to be alive--and a simple position to die.
" This swashbuckling delusion is a pleasant pastiche of the 3 Musketeers, a loving tribute to Dumas' period of romance. Brust succeeds, amazingly, in shooting the ambience, the Dumas variety, and the 4 characters in thinly disguised shape (Porthos is a female!); yet way more admirable, he manages to contrive a convoluted, unique plot that finds itself in tantalizing suits and starts off which might make the grasp proud. while, his exact global and the mannerisms of the characters stay his personal.

He stopped. The woman was turned toward the disturbed covers. She’d been sleeping close to her husband before he got up. Not on the far side of the bed, the way a woman merely doing her marital duties would. It was a love match. After her murder, Aleine Gunder had planned to offer the general a quick remarriage to a rich noblewoman. But this general, who’d married a lowborn woman for love, would react quite differently to his wife’s murder than a man who’d married for ambition. The idiot. The prince was so consumed with ambition that he thought everyone else was, too.
He froze. No, it was his imagination. He exhaled slowly. Something glimmered and he grabbed his first copper. He slithered to the unfinished pine beam he had gotten stuck under last time and shoveled mud away until water filled the depression. The gap was still so narrow that he had to turn his head sideways to squeeze underneath it. Holding his breath and pushing his face into the slimy water, he began the slow crawl. His head and shoulders made it through, but then a stub of a branch caught the back of his tunic, tearing the cloth and jabbing his back.
It was muddy now, and there would be no patrons, and Azoth had seen the tomcat leave. It should be fine. Besides, Rat was collecting guild dues tomorrow, and Azoth didn’t have four coppers. He didn’t even have one, so there wasn’t much choice. Rat wasn’t understanding, and he didn’t know his own strength. Littles had died from his beatings. Pushing aside mounds of mud, Azoth lay on his stomach. The dank earth soaked his thin, filthy tunic instantly. He’d have to work fast. He was skinny, and if he caught a chill, the odds of getting better weren’t good.
