Taming the Wild

When the aristocratic Vishov family is banished from Ustalav due to underhanded politics, Lady Tyressa Vishov is faced with a choice: fade slowly into obscurity, or strike out for the nearby River Kingdoms and establish a new holding on the untamed frontier. Together with her children and loyal retainers, she’ll forge a new life in the infamous Echo Wood, and neither bloodthirsty monsters nor local despots will stop her from reclaiming her family honor. Yet the shadow of Ustalavic politics is long, and even in a remote and lawless territory, there may be those determined to see the Vishov family fail...

From New York Times best-selling author Michael A. Stackpole comes a new novel of frontier adventure set in the world of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and the new Pathfinder Online massively multiplayer online roleplaying game.

Excellent book from excellent author


I'm a huge fan of stackpole from his star wars novels so i snapped this up straight away. I wasn't disaapointed. After a slow start it really picks up, developing the characters and the world well. I reaaly wish it was longer and hope they carry it on as a series, wish is the biggest compliment i can pay it.

One of my favorite Pathfinder Novels so far.


I hope this will become a saga just as Prince of Wolves and Death's Heretic did.

A good story

****( )

This would be a great Pathfinder Novel for someone who is new the the PF world. Basic villains and creatures, nothing too heavy that could bog down new readers.

The story was well told and held my attention. I did think the ending was a bit weak. (Sort of telegraphed and predictable.) But it didn't detract for the overall enjoyment of the story.

I hope the author writes a follow on novel. The city and characters really deserve more adventures and I would love to see them developed further.

A great read!


This was my first Pathfinder fiction apart from the stories in the Adventure Paths, and I haven't read much fantasy for a long time. I got the book as part of the Kickstarter campaign so I thought I'd give it a try to learn a bit more about the Crusader Road and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. It turned out to be one of those books that I actually made time to read as I enjoyed it so much and I'd like to hope that there will be more stories of Silverlake and the Vishov family.

Great premise delivered on.


An exiled noble and her family have to carve a city out of a wild region near the River Kingdoms. I read the sample chapter and I was hooked. This is a very entertaining PF Tale and one of the best in the series. Stackpole writes likable and engaging characters. I would love to see a sequel to find out what happens next. Check it out, you won't be disappointed.
