Book review: Dzur

Today's book review is Dzur by Steven Brust.  Actually, it's from sometime last week; I've gotten behind because it takes far too long to write the plot summaries that I've decided I want to include in my reviews than I can easily fit into my schedule.

This is the latest book in the Vlad Taltos series; don't even try to read it without being familiar with the series and definitely having read the last one, Issola.  I have read all of them, but it's been quite a while and I found myself fairly confused by what I couldn't remember.

Even though I'm a fan of the series, I found this book very hard to follow and confusing.  I have the distinct feeling that I missed a lot and I need to read it again.  I mostly blame myself for this, but I'm stuck with the mental state I have, which right now is beyond exhausted and wasn't the best while I read it.  Vlad is an interesting, if not exactly cuddly, character, and it was fun, in between being confused.  But my reading only gives it a 6 out of 10, even though I think it's probably better than that.

Gonna forego the plot summary; it hurts too much to keep my head vertical and my eyes open.
