Sooo... Brust fans...

I picked up The Paths of the Dead because it was the first Viscount book, which looked like its own separate sub-series, but on the cover it says something about "sequel to The Phoenix Guards and Five Hundred Years After. So... how much is this sub-series stand-alone, or should I wait until I can manage to find a copy of the other two books before I read, or what?

Edit: Well, damnit! Thanks for the help guys... guess this means I get to either wait until October for the next printing of Phoenix Guards to come out, or try to track down a used copy that costs less than 90 bucks... Grrr!

Read The Phoenix Guards and Five Hundred Years After first. Unquestionably.

Yeah, but it's worth it. They're awesome.

Yabut... I don't wanna wait 2 months. ><

Well, I guess if I poke around I can finally find a used copy but... meh.

Apparently so, with a reprint coming in October. At least, going by what's on Amazon.

$90? Shit, I need to Ebay mine and buy it again when the next run comes out.

I'll let you have it for the low low price of $45. :P

If you've read all the Vlad books, this fills in a lot of the back story of the Empire prior to Adrilahnka becoming the capital. You'll meet many familiar characters and some who we'd like to see again.

Ah hah! Ebay! I hadn't thought of that, thanks!

(Probably because I never buy books off ebay, but hey.)

Meh, that requires a) going out and being sociable and b) having to be way more careful of the books than I usually am. :p Like, not kicking back and snacking while reading, or whatever. :p
