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.

Tiassa; Different but Relevant
Tiassa is really three separate stories each with relevance to past books; it fills in some loose ends bringing more clarity to past stories. The last part of Tiassa is about the title and also fills in some gaps from a previous story line but also brings us back to the present.
Most of Steven Brust’s stories are told in first person with the main character Vlad Taltos as the narrator; Tiassa is told mostly in third person having other characters tell the tale. I believe this gives the series a little more depth and for one book I found the dialogue and the perspective interesting; but I would miss Vlad’s humor and charm if he were not back for the next book in this series.
I would highly recommend reading/listening to the other books in this series before using a credit on this one as there are too many references to past books.
I have listened to the entire series and having read some of the earlier books long ago would heartily recommend the audio version. Bernard Setaro Clark is a true professional and a great narrator.
