The latest novel in the New York Times bestselling Vlad Taltos seriesLong ago, one of the gods fashioned an artifact called the silver tiassa. To Devera the Wanderer, it was a pretty toy to play with. To Vlad Taltos, it was a handy prop for a con he was running. To the Empire, it was a tool to be used against their greatest enemies – the Jenoine. To the Jhereg, it was a trap to kill Vlad.
The silver tiassa, however, had its own agenda.
Tiassa will cover more than ten years in Vlad's life – and, to the delight of longtime fans, will bring him together with Khaavren, from The Phoenix Guards and its sequels. Who may be Vlad's new best friend – or his most terrible enemy.
