Summary

In which our heroes are reunited a mere five centuries later… just in time for an uprising that threatens to destroy the Imperial Orb itself!

This is the story of the conspiracy against the Empire that begins in the mean streets of the Underside and flourishes in the courtly politics of the Palace where Khaavren has loyally served in the Guards this past half-millenium. It is the tale of the Dragonlord Adron’s overweening schemes, of his brilliant daughter Aliera, and of the eldritch Sethra Lavode. And it is the tale of four boon companions, of love, and of revenge... a tale from the history of Dragaera, of the events that changed the world.

Great world. Horrible writing style.

I love the world, but I hate listening to the narrator. Even the way the people speak can be very grating. I bring myself to read this with great difficulty just so that I can learn more of the wonderful world Brust has crafted.

Unparalleled in performance -

I've read scores of fantasy novels since my youth, but Brust's works are the only ones I consistently return to. His ability to create & balance an entire Empire's history is astounding. The narrator's performance was spot on. Pitch, timing, cadence, and dozens of excellent voices were all there. I've always been a Taltos fan, and I'm overly pleased to have found the Dragaera series on audiobook -
