Get Out of Hell Free

When murdered sinners fail to show up in Hell, it's up to Salim Ghadafar, an atheist warrior forced to solve problems for the goddess of death, to track down the missing souls. In order to do so, Salim will need to descend into the anarchic city of Kaer Maga, following a trail that ranges from Hell's iron cities to the gates of Heaven itself. Along the way, he'll be aided by a host of otherworldly creatures, a streetwise teenager, and two warriors of the mysterious Iridian Fold. But when the missing souls are the scum of the earth, and the victims devils themselves, can anyone really be trusted?

From acclaimed author James L. Sutter comes a sequel to Death's Heretic, ranked #3 on Barnes & Noble's Best Fantasy Releases of 2011!

Announced! Cover image is a mockup, and will change prior to publication.


Interesting.

Of course it'll go to Kaer'Maga. This is Sutter, after all.

The Exchange

Yeah!

this one is going to Kaer Maga. Next Salim adventure will go to the stars of the Golarion solar system.

Death's Heretic was the best tale so far. I have high hopes for this one!

FINALLY A NEW SALIM BOOK!


...given the number of innocent souls Hell steals, I do not see why anyone should have any kind of problem with this at all. Fair is fair.


Oh, yes! Though April's shaping up to be an expensive month *starts saving*

Liberty's Edge

Yeah, this is the most anticipated book in the line.


Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Card Game, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Tales Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber

Hell yea! ;)


Agreed, can't wait for the sequel to the best tales book so far. Although I haven't read the Wizard's Mask yet.

Liberty's Edge

YESSS this makes me so happy!


A brief question about the main character. What exactly makes him an atheist? I'm curious about it.

Silver Crusade

He's from Rahadoum. You should read Death's Heretic, cause that would tell you all about Salim.


Fair enough. Is it available as an ebook?

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

You can get Death's Heretic in PDF/ePub, as well as print, here.

Silver Crusade

Yup! Available right here for $6.99!

Edit: Ninja'd by Vic, dangnabbit.

And speaking as a fairly well known book reviewer, it's a really good read. Get it.

Grand Lodge

Nice to see that my favorite characters are getting multiple books. I really liked Death's Heretic and Salim was a relateable character. Although I'm not sure if he should be called an atheist or an anti-theist.


Woohoo! Seeing this just made my night.

@Eric Saxon: I think that's a point they've actually made in a few places, that atheists in Golarion don't disbelieve in the gods, they just don't worship them and try to do without them. To be fair, yes that does make them more anti-theists, but within the context of the gameworld, atheist has just been chosen as the general term for them.

Kaer Maga, Heaven, and Hell all in a single Sutterific book? EXCITING.


Oooooh, definitely looking forward to this one!

One of the more interesting plot overviews I have read.


Can anyone really be trusted? HELL NO! ^_~

Don't trust a single being Salim!

Especially if you go to the Iron City of Dis!

You will never find a more wretched hive of SCUM and VILLAINY.

On a side note, what exactly does Heaven DO with the souls of mortals who were rotten to the core in life?

Give them the boot again or try to redeem them in some way?


um thats a nice setting you got there really dramatic on my part looks nice.

Oh wow! I somehow didn't notice this thread until just now. Thank you everyone for all the kind words, and I'm really excited to finally be releasing the next Salim book!

As for sending him to Kaer Maga--you've got Erik Mona to thank for that. When I was wracking my brain for what to do next, he was the one who said, "You know, there are a lot of fans of your Kaer Maga stuff..." And suddenly everything fell together.

Really hope you like this one!


Another Salim book?

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would pre-order it right now but sadly i won't (european customer and shipping costs and all of that), i will surely either get the pdf or the actual book from the european market.

I am really looking forward to see Salim in Kaer Maga (although i wish this book came out sooner because my players in Shattered Star are finishing book 2 and head to Kaer Maga next), but more importantly i am really looking forward to see Salim in other planes. I really enjoyed the plane hopping in death's heretic and i hope to see as many different realms in this book (i think it was 5 planes in death's heretic if i am not mistaken).

Thank you James Sutter for writing a story about Salim again.

I'd think in the upper planes it'd be more like "What the? How are these getting in here!? Pharasma! Clean up this mess!!"

Senior Editor/Fiction Editor

Thanks, everybody! I'm really excited to see what people think of this one. And don't worry, there's definitely some plane-hopping in here... :D

I have always been fascinated by Kaer Maga and cant wait for more. Death's heretic was a blast so this is a pleasant two-for.

Cool cover art. Not a fan of the 3D style, though.

Liberty's Edge

No art could possibly top the last Salim cover, but this one is certainly nice.


It looks interesting. This will reveal new information on Kaer Maga right? Because the first one seemed as if it expected you to know nothing of Golarion and it's cosmology, beside some little tidbits I hadn't seen anywhere else.

The cover looks good and unusually bright for the figures.

I definitely try to make all the Pathfinder Tales books accessible to folks who know nothing about the setting. So in that sense, we'll certainly be covering some ground that people familiar with Golarion and Kaer Maga already know. There won't be a lot of totally *new* elements invented, but there'll be a lot of deep-diving, elaboration, and questions answered on existing elements, in the sense that things that get a paragraph in City of Strangers will get whole chapters and be major characters, etc.

Oh, and there'll also be some pretty major planar revelations and sightseeing. Hold on to your hats. :D

Loved his first book. I will get this one for sure when it comes out!

The book I'm most looking forward to this year! Death's Heretic was my introduction to the Pathfinder Tales Novels, and quickly worked it's way to my most recommended book. It was an instant favorite of mine, as I'm sure The Redemption Engine well be!

Wow, thanks Ny! Glad I was a good entry point, and I hope you enjoy The Redemption Engine! :D

@James, my copy of Death's Heretic is nearly falling apart from lending it around the gaming group. It's spoken of very highly here.

Awesome! Thanks for helping spread the word! :D


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

The Iridian Fold? That's really piqued my interest! I've been wanting to know more about them for ages.

I really must pick up both this one and Death's Heretic, plus more of the Varian Jeggare/Radovan novels.

And that blood-weeping angel on the cover ... that makes me think of a certain person from the Chronicles of the Righteous ... And that's some interesting decor in the background ...
