Baker & Taylor
Ex-assassin Vlad Taltos is tracked down in his jungle hideout by Lady Teldra, the charming chatelaine of Castle Black, who hopes to enlist his assistance in finding friends who may have fallen into the clutches of the Jenoine.

McMillan Palgrave
Okay, so maybe I've been living in the woods too long, where you can't even get a decent cup of klava first thing in the morning. So who should turn up but Lady Teldra, the courtly servant of my old friend the Dragonlord Morrolan?

Teldra wants my help, because Morrolan and Aliera have disappeared, and according to Sethra Lavode, it looks like they may be in the hands of the Jenoine. Do I want to mess with them? The guys who made this place? And I thought I had problems before...

Oh well, what's a little cosmic battle with beings who control time and space? It's better than hunkering down in the woods without even so much as a drinkable cup of klava.

Blackwell North Amer
On the run from House Jhereg, which he double-crossed, Vlad Taltos has been living far too long in the woods, where you can't even get a decent cup of klava first thing in the morning. Then suddenly he's found by, of all improbable people, Lady Teldra, the courtly, preternaturally charming sevant of his old friend the Dragonlord Morrolan.
Teldra has come to ask for Vlad's help, because Morrolan and Aliera have disappeared, and it looks as if they may be literally gone from the world. Consulting the ever-interesting and fabulously powerful Sethra Lavode, Vlad and Teldra find that Morrolan and Aliera are being held captive by the Jenoine.
Who have hitherto been a mystery - perhaps not to a lord like Morrolan, but certainly to Vlad. Indications are that the Jenoine may have made Dragaera and may have once been the masters of the gods themselves. Not the kind of guys you want to go up against.
Cynical, Vlad may be. And he certainly claims to be devoted to looking out for Number One. But Morrolan and Aliera are his friends, and he can't bring himself to abandon then - even if it means doing battle at the Sea of Amorphia itself.
After all, what's a little cosmic battle with beings who control time and space? It's better than hunkering down in the woods without even so much as a drinkable cup of klava.

This is one of the better books that really describe one of the Great Houses of the Cycle. At least one member of Issola.
