Howls in the Dark

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.

A trip to Ustalav

*****

I really liked Prince of Wolves. I bought it in digital format and I really enjoyed the reading. I wanted to read this before the beginning of our Carrion Crown adventure (as a player) and it was really a good investment: I learned so much about Amaans and some of its inhabitants that the GM was impressed. My character will come from Kavapesta area and, as a Pharasma Inquisitor, I will have many stories to tell about the region. Moreover, I really enjoyed the story, the protagonists and their link with the history of Ustalav. I also suggest this book for non-native English readers (like me) because it was quite an easy lecture, I found it easier to read than some short Pathfinder tales which appear inside the Adventure Paths.


Good read, fun story, overall great

****( )

I admit that I haven't quite finished this book at this time...but I'm already enjoying it. This is the kind of book that you think of when people say "fantasy": a half-elf and half-demon in a strange kingdom in an adventure with werewolves. Honestly, if that description doesn't at least make you curious, then you're not the kind of person who would enjoy this book. If you are at least vaguely intrigued by the concept, then I'd recommend this book. The protagonists are likable, the lore isn't too hard for people who are new to Pathfinder (thanks partly to the index at the back and the fact that Ustalav is like every classic horror movie rolled into one gothic place), and the pacing is actually pretty good.

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.
