By Chris A. Jackson

A pirate captain of the Inner Sea, Torius Vin makes a living raiding wealthy merchant ships with his crew of loyal buccaneers. Few things matter more to Captain Torius than ill-gotten gold—but one of those is Celeste, his beautiful snake-bodied navigator. When a crafty courtesan offers the pirate crew a chance at the heist of a lifetime, it’s time for both man and naga to hoist the black flag and lead the Stargazer’s crew to fame and fortune. But will stealing the legendary Star of Thumen chart the corsairs a course to untold riches—or send them all to a watery grave?

From award-winning author Chris A. Jackson comes a fantastical new adventure of high-seas combat and romance set in the award-winning world of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.

Not exactly what I expected....but still great.

*****

I liked this book. The plot was interesting. The plan the crew came up with was I thought very creative. I thought Vreva and Celeste are great characters...Torius took a little bit to grow on me though though by the end and his relationship with Celeste won me over.

Though my favorite parts of the book was the interaction between Vreva and Celeste. Though any scene with Vreva in I loved.


great story, uses setting wonderfully, nautical terms galore

*****

I was prepped to be skeptical of this by some of the reviews emphasizing it had a romance in it. Do not be worried, it all makes sense and is in fact critical to the story. People were making it sound like he had just slapped in some pointless romance novel passages, which is not at all the case.

Where to start? First off, you'll end up feeling like you could draw a map of the inner seas from memory.

I am running a pirate campaign, and the sheer expertise Mr jackson has in sailing just brings this to life. Since my players dont know either, i plan on stealing half a dozen cool nautical terms i dont understand to add flavor to my game haha!

the romance doesnt distract from the narrative, it is critical to it. The relationship between ALL of the crew is on display, not just the captain and his navigator.

I can understand why some people didnt like the cat-and-mouse aspects of it if they were expecting cannons and explosions, but i much prefer the style of the Stargazer - precision pirates who use inside information to steal wonders and unique items, not a cargo hold full of long underwear bound for Ulfen.

I also recommend reading the short story Stargazer, free here on paizo i think, since its a prequel to this and explains what, cough, happened to their old first mate.

and for those wondering - the sequel so far (i havent finished) is looking even better! All of the cool side characters from the first book are back, and in just the very start, BAM!! major bombshells dropped. I cannot believe the discipline the author in writing the first one to not drop these earlier. i look back now, and see the hints and signs, which makes me want to re-read this!

PS Snick for President


In the end i liked it

****( )

I was very warry for the recent pathfinder tale (pirate's promise) which is this one's sequel so i decided to read pirate's tale, but the issue is that i don't like pirates.
It's a good thing then that this novel's crew aren't pirates, they don't do pirate stuff, they are more like con men or blackmailers.
There are very likable characters and some interesing naval stuff, it really shows that the author either really knows his boats or has done very good research.
My only issue that the magic in the novel isn't a lot but more importantly the magic shown in the novel is used in a very unusual way and not in the ways you might expect (for example in combat).

I recommend the novel to everyone because i ended up enjoying it very much, and i will definetely read the sequel.


A Pirate Romance but not a Pathfinder Tale!

**( )( )( )

THE GOOD:
The beginning is great and has a lot of potential.
The characters are likeable.
The end is pretty good too.
The author clearly knows much about boats and sea-travel.
Great use of the detect magic spell.

THE BAD:
The potential of the Lunar Naga is never realized.
The characters are a bit steriotypical.

THE UGLY:
Almost no magic is used in the battle between the navy and the pirates which makes it very unrealistic!

Conclusion:
It is an enjoyable pirate tale with some nice moments and lots of romance but not a real pathfinder novel.
It would have been good in a low level magic setting, but the battles between the pirate ship and the chelish navy could be exchanged against any other setting.


Pirate's Delight

***( )( )

If you love pirate adventures on the the high seas, this is the book for you. If you don't care for sea reaver stories though, it doesn't have a lot to offer.
