I am in thanks! The excerpt was just so good. Could not believe that a person could open a story that well. I feel like I know a lot more than I ought to after that short an excerpt and never having read any of the other books... Need!!!

Fantastic series - can't wait for the next one! (Although my favorite is still the Phoenix Guard series)
Ellynne
27. DRickard
Bring it on! No matter how subtle the wizard, a knife between the shoulder blades will cramp his style.

I'm excited to see what happens next. Although, given the excerpt, it seems what's happening in Tiassa isn't quite "next".

Ellynne
92. Michael B Sullivan
This sounds nice.

Out of curiosity, in future giveaways, would it be possible to give an electronic copy in addition to (or, though I doubt this would be popular, instead of) a print copy? I've found somewhat to my surprise that the Kindle is convenient enough that given the option, I prefer to read books on it to reading them on paper.
Ellynne
93. Sihaya

More Vlad!
Ellynne
105. Sibling
Ohh, really looking forward to more of this.

Always wondered how Vlad managed to get on speaking terms with the Empress. Wonder if her childhood friend Piro (the Blue Fox) gave him an introduction...

While I cannot, in any seriousness, catalog this Brust fellow amongst the exemplars of serious literature, there exists some slight basis for amusement in his pretensions, and a copy would be appreciated at least to some degree by this poster, if only to provide examples of sentence structure best to be avoided.
Ellynne
146. Kaaaaate

Not sure what a tiassa is, but it looks fierce. But also, possibly, tasty.
