by Liane Merciel

In the grim nation of Nidal, carefully chosen children are trained to practice dark magic, summoning forth creatures of horror and shadow for the greater glory of the Midnight Lord. Isiem is one such student, a promising young shadowcaller whose budding powers are the envy of his peers. Upon coming of age, he’s dispatched on a diplomatic mission to the mountains of Devil’s Perch, where he’s meant to assist the armies of devil-worshiping Cheliax in clearing out a tribe of monstrous winged humanoids. Yet as the body count rises and Isiem comes face to face with the people he’s exterminating, lines begin to blur, and the shadowcaller must ask himself who the real monsters are...

From Liane Merciel, critically acclaimed author of The River King's Road and Heaven's Needle, comes a fantastical tale of darkness and redemption set in the award-winning world of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.

June 20? That's even worse! 20 days passed that I haven't read this book! Blasphemy!

You could always subscribe :)

Not only would you get the book faster, you'd have an electronic version available instantly.

(e-books have grown on me, but only for books I have an actual, physical copy of. When I'm stuck somewhere, I can read them on my iPhone, yet when I'm home, I can enjoy the much more pleasurable feeling of reading an actual book)

I am heavily disappointed that Barnes and Nobles has yet to get it in my area. Now if I want to drive 50 miles I can get it. Stupid.

Don't want to subscribe as there are writers at Paizo I cannot stand to read (World wound gambit)

Not to mention I'd rather not have to pay a heavy shipping on a book that will get read and shoved on a shelf afterwards.

Did you ask if they could order it for you? The amount you'd spend on gas would far outweigh the cost of getting it shipped, but I imagine B&N (or any other bookseller) can order you anything their distributor has (and book distributors should have this book now).

Glad to see folks are enjoying this one so much! Liane's currently working on an outline for another novel, so hopefully you'll see more of her before too long. :)

Apologies for the two errors noted--they'll be fixed in subsequent printings.

Great to hear that she will be writing another. This girl can write.

Awesome news! Can't wait to hear what it is about!

Please let it be a book about either Mendev/Worldwound or Cheliax (possibly Isiem's "adventures" there?)!

Alas, no. The scope's likely to be a little more claustrophobic.

It is possible that someday I may try to do something set in one of those two regions, however, because I would like to bring about a convergence between certain characters from Nightglass and certain character(s) from "Certainty." And either Mendev or Cheliax would be the most logical place to do that.

But that's not this story, yet.

Oh well, I'm a patient man. When I read Nightglass (which was a stellar read, by the way), I was very intrigued by the references to Isiem's time in Westcrown, which is why I mentioned Cheliax as a project I'd like to see with your name on it. That and Cheliax is a damn cool place. :D

Finally finished it, I love my 4 minute bus commute, but it is really killing my bus reading. I looked over the reviews and Karameikos hit exactly what I was thinking. I loved reading about the environment. I loved the insight into Nidal, but never really cared for Isiem.

Additionally, after some of the comments mentioned her online Pathfinder story, I clicked on it and was reminded of something I have wondered about.

Why, after a story is finished, are the stories left in a backward chapter order?


I started reading this yesterday. I had suspended my subscription due to financial concerns, and so missed three books (Song of the Serpent, City of the Fallen Sky, and Nightglass). I picked up the ePubs that I missed with the Christmas Discount.

I am sad that I did not start with this book when I began reading my backlog. This book grabbed me in a way that Song of the Serpent and City of the Fallen Sky did not. I'll reserve final judgment until I am done with the book, but this is shaping up to be one of the better books in the Tales Line.
