When taken in context of the whole book, some of the characters are downright wicked. For example, a supporting character in one story may associate or aid the main character in one story is presented in another story as a main character and ends up being a murder and saddist. There is some irony with the characters. The 'good guys' aren't always who you would expect then to be.
This is an introduction into the world of Sanctuary. There exists some incosistencies, but they aren't unreasonable when taken in context as a different point of view for an event. Even in real life, several people may see an event and give different accounts. There are no paragons of virtue in Thieve's World.
"Thieves' World: First Blood" is a happy exception. The book features a storyline continuum, with the individual chapters written by exceptionally skilled writers who are very inventive and very literate. They have written a compilation of adult fantasy at its best.
Example: Page 261, "What is it?" she said, trying to keep her teeth from chattering. be here. Good? That will put some stiffening in our backbone, heat our livers. Let's go now."
I have no idea what's missing, it looks like a couple of sentences. I can still follow the story, but it's distracting. And that's the third time I've found something like that in this one book. Not to mention the smaller error that seem to be inherent in eBooks.
