Demon Apocalypse

After a century of imprisonment, demons have broken free of the wardstones surrounding the Worldwound. As fiends flood south into civilized lands, Count Varian Jeggare and his hellspawn bodyguard Radovan must search through the ruins of a fallen nation for the blasphemous text that opened the gate to the Abyss in the first place—and which might hold the key to closing it. In order to succeed, however, the heroes will need to join forces with pious crusaders, barbaric local warriors, and even one of the legendary god callers. It’s a race against time as the companions fight their way across a broken land, facing off against fiends, monsters, and a vampire intent on becoming the god of blood—but will unearthing the dangerous book save the world, or destroy it completely?

From best-selling author Dave Gross comes a new adventure set against the backdrop of the Wrath of the Righteous Adventure Path in the award-winning world of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.

Another late review, as I read this earlier in the year, but I want to catch up w/ reviews of everything I've read.

Almost hard to write reviews that don't repeat what others have said, and also b/c I don't think reviews are a strength of mine. But I love the characters, I love that the world evolves around them and doesn't stay static, and I love new characters/companions keep getting introduced (some of whom find themselves in future books). Good stuff.

It should go w/out saying, but the fact that these books can sometimes be loosely tied to the themes of an AP make them all the more interesting to me. And more desirous to run said AP. Which is what I assume makes Paizo happy. Though I buy the APs anyway ;-)

Edit: somehow I forgot to rate this originally...

Immersive Pathfinder Fantasy


Some Pathfinder Tales can have the feel of a generic fantasy plot dropped on to the Pathfinder setting by way of lip service to the Inner Sea World Guide. Dave Gross makes the setting his own and his Pathfinder Tales would make a top class Fantasy series by themselves. The characters are nuanced and unfold with the pages. The plots and the series as a whole are cohesive and immersive. The writing is first class, making reading a joy. The setting becomes real rather than bolt-on. Here Oparal becomes a third narrator to break the previous Varian / Radovan alternating chapter pattern. The new perspective is refreshing and effective because it is so distinct. The horrific background of the Worldwound adds tension. I loved this novel. If you are considering whether Pathfinder Tales are worth a look, then start with Dave Gross, Radovan and Varian.


A Great Series, A Great Book


Why are you reading through reviews... just go buy the book, it's worth it!
