Dragon: Vlad Taltos, Book 8 | [Steven Brust]

Dragon: Vlad Taltos, Book 8

Marching through mud just isn't as much fun as they say. After years of surviving in Adrilankha by practicing the trade I know best - killing people for a living - suddenly I'm in the last place any self-respecting assassin wants to be: the army. Worse, I'm right in the middle of a apocalyptic battle between two sorcerous armies, and everyone expects me to play a role they won't explain. All I've got between me and the worst kind of death is my wits. Oh, and a smart-mouthed winged lizard.

    "Novel Much Better than the Audiobook"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    To those who I believe would enjoy Brust's Vlad Taltos series (those I've not already suggested it to), I might recommend the audiobook, but really I'd lean more to recommending the novel.Maybe after having read the novels in this series, the voices, tone and inflection used, just seemed off. This was most notable with Morrolan, and especially for Kragar. The droll, sort of stuffy voice just didn't seem to fit for the banter between them and Vlad. Everyone else worked okay, but these two important characters just didn't work, and detracted from the story for me.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dragon?

    Vlad working to initially fit in with the veteran soldiers of his company.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Bernard Setaro Clark?

    The narrator, Bernard Clark, is good, just not right--or didn't create the right voices--for this work--at least as I listened to it.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I couldn't do better than the tag line on the back cover of Brust's novel:

    When the Dragonlord Morrolan hired me to guard a cache of sorcerous weapons, I never suspected I would end up in the thick of battle, where no self-respecting assassin ought to be--and worse, on the losing side. But that's what comes of consorting with Dragons...


    Any additional comments?

    Dragon is my favorite novel in the series. That's why I selected it to give a shot with the audiobook version.
