Kagur is a warrior of the Blacklions, fierce and fearless hunters in the savage Realm of the Mammoth Lords. When her clan is slaughtered by a frost giant she considered her adopted brother, honor demands that she, the last surviving Blacklion, track down her old ally and take the tribe’s revenge. This is no normal betrayal, however, for the murderous giant has followed the whispers of a dark god down into the depths of the earth, into a primeval cavern forgotten by time. There, he will unleash forces capable of wiping all humans from the region—unless Kagur can stop him first.

From acclaimed author Richard Lee Byers comes a tale of bloody revenge and subterranean wonder, set in the award-winning world of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.

Down the Rabbit Hole... If Rovagug was a cute fluffly rabbit

***( )( )

I'm not quite sure how I feel about this one, while on one hand I enjoyed the adventure and plot of revenge and all the strange and wonderful sights gleamed within it just never snapped me up. As the story goes on various parts and travels seem to lurch up or slog down hapharzardly. This seems to straighten out as it nears the end which has an excellent lead up and plays out wonderfully... For a point, then the ending just sort of happens more or less. Also while not a bad ending its not one I really cared for. I feel at odds that my favourite parts of the book are when the characters are dreamimg, from there they are more alive and more interesting than in all of the rest of the book combined.


I was extemely let down by Eovath's death. It seemed like there might be a moment of, I don't know, something? Anything? Instead she promptly kills her brother and the whole thing is over. The book doesn't so much grind to a halt as it does slam into it.

Old School Adventure!

If you ever spent a Saturday morning enjoying the adventures of a family that got whisked away to a strange dimension on a river rafting trip, this is the book for you. Continues a long tradition of Lost World stories, with solid characters and writing. Definitely worth the read.

A worthy ERB effort

****( )

I loved this book. It took my favorite human ethnicity, the Kellids, added my favorite setting, the Darklands, focused on my favorite aspect of that setting, Deep Tolgoth, and worked it all into a fantastic whole.

I've read some negative reviews about the characters lacking depth and being able to hear the dice rolling. I agree, which is why this isn't a 5 star review. However, overwhelming those complaints is a fantastic peek at the world that isn't covered by simply reading a campaign setting rulebook on the subject.

I liked that there was an older protagonist in this novel as well. It is unusual, and a refreshing change.

I would have liked to see more witty banter and, if this was going to be a true ERB novel, the protagonist has to find romance, preferably with someone who despises them from the beginning of the story.

Lady Ssa, which is Ass backwards, was one of the best characterizations of the serpent people I've seen. She felt very Smallville Brainiac to me.

"Lying to you would be like lying to a mollusk. There's no point."

There's a lot of PF fiction to get to these days, and I'm glad to see it start showing up in my local bookstore. RLB deserves a round of applause for this one.

The Adventures of Kagur and Holg!


This book was SOOO good! At first it was a little bit slow, but in the end it gets so exciting when they enter the ziggurat and run away from the xulgaths. It was a little bit bloody and gruesome at times, but all in all it was a very good read!
