by Howard Andrew Jones

The race is on to free Lord Stelan from the grip of a wasting curse, and only Elyana, his old elven adventuring companion and former lover, has the wisdom and reflexes to save him. When the villain turns out to be another of their former companions, Elyana and a band of ragtag adventurers must set out on a perilous race across the revolution-wracked nation of Galt and the treacherous Five Kings Mountains, bound for the mysterious Vale of Shadows. But even if they can succeed in locating the key to Stelan’s salvation in a lost valley of weird magic and nightmare beasts, the danger isn't over. For Elyana's companions may not all be what they seem.

From sword and sorcery icon Howard Andrew Jones comes a fantastic new adventure set in the award-winning world of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.

Exiting read

****( )

Good adventure, well written - nice elven portraits, I particular like Elyana's dialogs. Many cliff-hanging moments and a surprising turn of events. The book gives a good overview and history of some of Golarions deities, but I could've wished for a bit more about Taldor and Galt. 4 large stars from me :)

Plague of Shadows


I really loved this novel. This is what I have been wanting see in Pathfinder Tales. I love the writing style and the characters and how it felt very much like an OGL story to me. I read game themed novels because I want to see the game elements in them and live in the game world for just a little while. I hope to see more like this book and more from this author.

Adventure! Excitement! Dragons


This is my favorite book of the Pathfinder Tales so far. It earns a solid PG under the MPAA rating system. This book was a fun quest. As I read it, I felt like I was running through an adventure. There are some mature themes in it (racism, love/loss, violence, death, quest for power), but nothing that you wouldn't find in any novel read in a Jr High/High School English class. This book has a very strong female lead. I would rate this as a Teen+ book, highly enjoyable to all ages above 13.



A great story with interesting characters and a fun gripping plotline.

So far the weakest of all Pathfinder Tales

**( )( )( )

Reading this novels feels like reading a report of an adventure someone played, which does not have to be bad... but somehow this was too boring and foreseeable. Compared to the other books this one is written more in the tradition of the "classic fantasy pulp novel" so it's pretty naive and full of cliches. Might be a nice read for kids, though ;)
