#BookReview: Tsalmoth (Vlad Taltos #16) by @StevenBrust @TorBooks

Synopsis: First comes love. Then comes marriage…

Vlad Taltos is in love. With a former assassin who may just be better than he is at the Game. Women like this don’t come along every day and no way is he passing up a sure bet.

So a wedding is being planned. Along with a shady deal gone wrong and a dead man who owes Vlad money. Setting up the first and trying to deal with the second is bad enough. And then bigger powers decide that Vlad is the perfect patsy to shake the power structure of the kingdom.

More's the pity that his soul is sent walkabout to do it.

How might Vlad get his soul back and have any shot at a happy ending? Well, there’s the tale…

This title will be released on April 25, 2023.


Rating: 5 Stars
My Review: I have enjoyed the Vlad Taltos series since book one and I am still here after so many books later.  This one was even better than the first and it's just so amazing how these never get boring.  I loved them all and can not wait to have a chance to read them again.  This is humorous and an amazing adventure that I could not put down.

“Brust’s writing is even more assured here than it was when he too was a younger man. 
Tsalmoth is full of the same magic of Jhereg but with more depth and earned swagger.” ―Locus
