by Dave Gross

For half-elven Pathfinder Varian Jeggare and his devil-blooded bodyguard Radovan, things are rarely as they seem. Yet not even the notorious crime-solving duo is prepared for what they find when a search for a missing Pathfinder takes them into the gothic and mist-shrouded mountains of Ustalav. Beset on all sides by noble intrigue, mysterious locals, and the deadly creatures of the night, Varian and Radovan must use both sword and spell to track the strange rumors to their source and uncover a secret of unimaginable proportions, aided in their quest by a pack of sinister werewolves and a mysterious mute priestess. But it’ll take more than merely solving the mystery to finish this job. For shadowy figures have taken note of the pair’s investigations, and the forces of darkness are set on making sure neither man gets out of Ustalav alive...

From fan-favorite author Dave Gross comes a new fantastical mystery set in the award-winning world of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.

368-page mass market paperback.

All around fantastic

*****

(suggestion - read Hells Pawn, and The Lost Pathfinder first, but this is not required)

Having already read two stories and a novella, I was hooked on Radovan and Jeggare. This work started off a little slow for me, since i was used to hopping right in the action. Now that i have finished it, I wouldnt have it any other way. All of the early stuff sets up the later parts beautifully, and also gives the final mad dash an extra sense of drama.

I won't go into detail to avoid spoilers, but this book has one chapter that is an all-time classic. We are used to Gross alternating points of view between Radovan and Jeggare chapter by chapter, but without warning we have a Chapter where Jeggare is writing a letter to someone that is clearly not Radovan. You may do a double-take to see if you missed something, nope - just trust Gross, and hold on for the ride! You'll be blown away!


THE BEST OF THE BEST OF THE BEST!!!

*****

THE GOOD:
The first of 4 (so far in december 2014) novels staring
Count Varian Jeggare and Radovan Virholt.

I have read this book 5 times so far and every time i notice new details about the pathfinder world.

The story is very interesting because it changes perspective every chapter and seeds are planted for later stories.

THE BAD:
A bit confusing at the beginning for people who don´t know the pathfinder setting, especially all the different NPC characters mentioned in the Varian chapters.

THE UGLY:
No book 5 anouncement yet! ;-)
Nothing ugly about this book.

A Great Read

*****

Prince of Wolves tells the story of Count Jeggare and his body-guard Randovan as they travel through Ustalav.

The story is told from a first-person perspective and each chapter is from the point of view of one of the two protagonist.

This style of narrative gives the reader a refreshing change from the usual third-person perspective and is a great way to provide insight to the character's thoughts in a way that feels natural.

Count Jeggare is a noble-blooded and educated man from birth, so he can seem arrogant and pretentious at times, but he is ultimately a man with a good heart who can actually see the humor in the situation at times, and as the story moves on, he learns to better recognize the value of those of not so noble birth.

Randovan is all that Count Jeggare is not. Low-born, brass, uneducated... A man raised on the streets but no less noble of heart. He can be brass and rude sometimes, but he genuinely cares about his friends and allies. It's easier to sympathize with him due to his simple beginnings and easy-going nature (although he does know the time to get serious!).

The contrast between the protagonists is only equaled by their loyalty to one another and mutual respect.

They're both likable protagonists in their own ways, but far from perfect. And the people they meet are just as colorful, although not as well-developed due to the simple fact that they obviously don't have as much spotlight as the protagonists.

I really enjoyed the action and the character development in this book. The mystery and suspense are pretty good too, although not spectacular. I'll gladly add another 5-stars review to its collection.


Excellent

*****

Thoroughly enjoyed the book. The Radovan and Jeggare stories are easily the best of the Pathfinder Tales.
