Praise For…

Praise for Tsalmoth:

“Vlad’s narration is cocky and quick-witted as ever, and it’s a joy to revisit his usual costars... Series fans won’t want to miss this” —Publishers Weekly

“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

Tsalmoth is an easy introduction to Brust’s Draegaran world for new readers and an exciting continuation for returning fans.” —Booklist
