From Library Journal
Quick with both sword and wit, Vlad Taltos makes his way through the world of Dragaera as an assassin, aided by a small talent for magic and a lizard-like jhereg companion. Collecting the first three novels in Brust's Vlad Taltos series (e.g., Jhereg), this volume serves as a good introduction to the adventures of the author's archly sophisticated, wryly humorous hero. Recommended for libraries that do not already own the individual titles included.

I just re-read all 14 of the published books in the series over three weeks of travel (my computer died so I wasn't playing games). I like the series and I'm going back and re-reading Phoenix Guards now. This is the third time I've read the series, though I had not read the 11 - 14th books yet.
Not all of the books are great but Jhreg is a great read. If you have read the series once and not gone back to re-read the first book, try it. Better yet, read the Phoenix Guard series. You'll be amazed at just how much is alluded to in the first book.
A piece of advice, the stories are not in chronological order throughout the 3 sets of omnibuses that hold 3books each. However, I believe they are the first nine books in the collection. Doing it again, I would go find the chronological order and read them that way. My husband doesn't get in a work about that stuff and I followed his advise that 'any order is fine,' some point around 3am and was feeling lazy. I will ignore his opinions on reading series in order from now on no matter how late or tiring it is.
On par with LotR or WoT? Nope, and I don't think Brust was trying to recreate those fantastic series but what he has created is a down & dirty quick little book to read that will have you up all night trying to finish it. Some of the plot twists & revelations in the series will have you going back to the start & re-reading them looking at each character in a different light to unravel what you think you know.
Thanks Mr. Brust for these books! I have enjoyed them for a long time & will continue to enjoy them as long as I have eyesight.
