She's the oldest person in the Dragaeran Empire a military genius and master of sorcery whose own story stretches back to before the dawn of history She's Sethra Lavode the undead Enchantress of Dzur Mountain Now after a long absence she's returned to take an active role in the Empire's affairs and the affairs of Khaavren Pel Tazendra Aerich and all their friends and relations Since the day Adron's D. reviewsmetaphorosiscom 2 starsThe rebel Kana is challenging Zerika's nascent reign Khaavren and friends and his son and his friends try to save the dayI've previously been a big fan of Brust's writing but I found The Paths of the Dead the first part of Brust's Viscount of Adrilankha sub trilogy to be almost unreadable What should have been a one chapter joke of tortured but amusing verbal gymnastics stretched on and on and on It went uickly from amusing to irritating to painful to tortuous I finished the book but had no thought of reading further in the series no matter how great my interest in the world's history or the characters'Still years went by and I saw this third volume of the sub trilogy at a discount store I almost never read books out of seuence but I've always liked Sethra Lavode so I thought I'd give it a try I'm sorry to say that not only has Brust not given up the joke he seems to have double down on it The result was just as infuriating as the first time around and there's remarkably little substance to go with the verbal acrobatics In fact it seems the plot is a vehicle for the word games than the main intentOthers have claimed that Brust is consciously emulating Dumas' The Three Musketeers and in fact the tone and the structure a trilogy in which the final volume is so massive that it is broken down into smaller books are similar I'm just not sure what the purpose was We have Dumas' book already; recreating it in a fantasy world doesn't add much And while I can forgive Dumas' style given its temporal distance Brust doesn't have that excuse He's stretched a very thin joke into a vast and unwelcoming journey in which the language is an obstacle that keeps you from admiring the scenery It's one thing when that's an author's natural style as with Lawrence Durrell but another when the author can write well but chooses cleverness over ualityI'd still like to know what happened in the middle volume but I can't see subjecting myself to it any time soon It's frustrating that Brust clearly a talented and inventive writer seems lately to have done so little with his skill this extended linguistic joke and the occasional formulaic extension of the Jhereg series Where is the author of To Reign in Hell Cowboy Feng's Bar and Grille or even Brokedown Palace Maybe at some point Brust will finish having his fun stop coasting and write something new Roger Zelazny said Watch Steven Brust At his urging I've been doing that and for a while I enjoyed it But I'm starting to wonder who took the original and why they left this smirking jokester in his place
