Book Review: Dzur, by Stephen Brust


What can I say without spoiling the plot for my beloved spouse, who hasn’t read the previous book in the series, Issola. Auuuuggghhh! Give me back my husband, you foul MMORPGs! He isn’t reading enough books anymore! And Issola is in a box somewhere, waiting for the big move! Double aaaaaaauuuuuuggggghhhhh!

I’m hoping the next book in the series will be about Vlad’s adventures in the East–he keeps dropping hints about them–but it probably won’t come out until the same weekend as the last Harry Potter book or something.

  1. I actually started to go looking for the previous ones before I realized just what that would entail. I’ll wait til we get unpacked. 🙂

  2. I had completely forgotten the Major Plot Development at the end of Issola, even though it plays a passively significant role in Dzur.

    Of course, it was 4-5 years …

    We both realized, btw, that we were woefully behind in our re-reading of Brust because we keep trying to reread the whole Vlad series before doing a new one — and the middle book are just so offputting that it’s too difficult to plow through them to get to Orca and the following.

  3. I tried to do that with the Robert Jordan series back in college…then I realized I was losing increasing chunks of my life every year, and it was slowly getting more and more pointless to read the books, anyway…
