Fury of the North

In a village of the frozen north, a child is born possessed by a strange and alien spirit, only to be cast out by her tribe and taken in by the mysterious winter witches of Irrisen, a land locked in permanent magical winter. Farther south, a young mapmaker with a penchant for forgery discovers that his sham treasure maps have begun striking gold.

This is the story of Ellasif, a barbarian shield maiden who will stop at nothing to recover her missing sister, and Declan, the ne'er-do-well young spellcaster-turned-forger who wants only to prove himself to the woman he loves. Together they'll face monsters, magic, and the fury of Ellasif's own cold-hearted warriors in their quest to rescue the lost child. Yet when they finally reach the ice-walled city of Whitethrone, where trolls hold court and wolves roam the streets as men, will it be too late to save the girl from the forces of darkness?

From New York Times best seller Elaine Cunningham comes a fantastic new adventure of swords and sorcery, set in the award-winning world of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.

Just Not Engaging

*( )( )( )( )

This review is based on the review I wrote on Goodreads:

This was the second Pathfinder Tales book I read.I found the female lead to be thoroughly unlikable and I was completely unable to relate to her. The male lead was acceptable in a naif-ish way, but I haven't got a clue about how his quirk magic ability works in Pathfinder terms. I found the plot somewhat engaging, except when the female lead was taking action. The ending is best described as rushed, predictable and flat.

Not bad

***( )( )

Was an entertaining story. Sparked my interest in the Ulfen, but the ending felt a little flat to me. But again, not bad.

Not Bad

***( )( )

The god-level magic possessed by one of the characters doesn't fit with the world of Golarion IMO.

A fun read but...

***( )( )

The story and characters make for a fun read, but I felt the ending left us with a situation that wasn't really in keeping with the rest of the book. Leaving the characters with that much power is problematic for the future.

The one person not trying to screw people over gets a happy ending, imagine that


While I liked this book I can definitely align myself with Sif, I would have preferred if more had been done to the villagers for what they did. Their nonchalantness and supposed moral superiority about the whole thing made me want to axe something. That little twinge aside this is a very good read and very well written when the events start to snowball and collide with each other as everything plays out.

Also this book contains my single most favorite use of Necromancy ever.

Also also I was pleasantly surprised when the motivations of all the players in this story came about, some of them threw me for a loop, but they were all very satisfying

Also also also Irrisen.

Definitely recommend.
