Issola Once more, back to Vlad. This one was fun to write, and I think it came out okay. So far, Vlad is keeping me entertained. Discussion Page

No discussion yet (here) of this estimable volume? Fine, I’ll start. skzb knew about Zungaron way back in 2001, when this one came out. Sethra’s exasperation with him? Palpable.
Also some of Morrolan’s origin story is nicely projected from Teldra’s perspective.
This book is one of my personal favorites. I can’t really voice my reasoning in a way that satisfies me, but it has such great characterizations of Vlad, our Estimable Dragonlords, Teldra, Verra, and gives more insight into the history and lore of the world that can be used for my crackpot theories.
I enjoyed this a lot. I hope you will write at least one more book with him and the left hand.
Hands down my favorite Vlad story. The conversations between Vlad and Teldra were delightfully enjoyable. Elevating a fairly minor background character to the same stage as Vlad was done flawlessly, IMHO. Of all the Vlad stories, this is the one that I most often return to just to reread a particular scene (and the end up finishing the rest of the book).
I can’t wait until Lady Teldra wakes up…
