Portal to Destiny

Mirian Raas and her faithful crew make their living salvaging lost treasures from sunken ships along the coast of tropical Sargava. While retrieving riches from the bottom of Desperation Bay, Mirian and her friend Jekka, one of the last of his lizardfolk tribe, unexpectedly run across the wreck of an ancient magical ship. The discovery leads them on a quest for an arcane artifact called a dragon’s tear, which may be the key to locating Jekka’s vanished people. But a vengeful sorcerer and a zealous agent of the Child-God Walkena also seek the dragon’s tear—and they’ll stop at nothing to get it. Can Mirian and her crew pass through the legendary gate in the sea and find the tear before it’s too late?

Deepwater salvager Mirian Raas and her bold crew may have bought their nation's freedom with a hoard of lost lizardfolk treasure, but their troubles are only just beginning in this sequel to Beyond the Pool of Stars.

From critically acclaimed author Howard Andrew Jones comes a tale of clashing cultures and jungle adventure, set in the award-winning world of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.

****( )

A solid sequel to Beyond the Pool of Stars. Similar to Stalking the Beast, which was itself a sequel to Plague of Shadows, we once again have a maturing and sympathetic portrayal of the main heroine's main companion. In the first 2 books it was the wonderful half-orc Drelm, and in these latest 2 books, it's the lizardman Jekka.

I still prefer Elyana, Drelm et al. to Mirian Raas, Jekka et al. If I had to guess, though, future PF novels by HAJ will bring entirely new characters and locales, so there's that to look forward to.

I liked the competing...villainous might not be the right word...interests and foils to the party, but it felt like the agent of the Child-God Walkena was a bit underutilized to be honest. On the other hand, the "vengeful sorcerer" (no spoilers) from the back cover was delightful. Her banter w/ a certain wordsmith in 1 scene was great.


Wow- One of the best Pathfinder Tales novels yet.

Hello my fellow Gamers,

I have recently read a copy of the Pathfinder tales “Through the Gate in the Sea”. Let me first start by saying the book is excellent. Rarely have I read a novel that beckons to me as Gm to sit down later and take some notes to “borrow” later for my Pathfinder RPG game. I am personally running a Serpents Skull campaign which happens to take place near the region that a portion of the book takes place (smugglers shiv and surrounding sea).
Where to start? The novel continues the adventures of Mirian Raas (a human female captain of a sea vessel) and her loyal friend Jekka. Now in case you have not read any of the other Pathfinder tales involving this duo Jekka is a male lizardfolk. The author gives us great insights into the relationship between the two but the most enjoyable moments for me is when we see the way Jekka interacts with other People. So often when we read we think of ourselves in the character’s shoes. When we see things from a Lizardfolk’s perspective it can be amusing, confusing yet oddly it reminds us that in the world of fantasy Humans are just a one of the many races. It makes me really wish to explore playing a Lizardfolk character who also searches for his lost heritage (or perhaps others of his kind).

As for adventure This book has plenty. You go from aboard ships, to the depths of the ocean. There are pirates, sorcerers, Dinosaurs and did I mention followers of the Child-God Walkena. And of course, for my fellow Pathfinder or D&D Gm’s we can’t forget to mention cool locations. The heroes adventure ancient vaults of long forgotten crypt and then a magical island. They search for a magical artifact and of course a Party of opposite intentions wishes to find the same artifact for much less than noble reasons.

I love a book that will challenge my inner creativity and in that regard this book is one of my favorites. I love a great adventure, but throw in the clash of differing cultures and rare locations and it makes a great story.
I have included a link to my video review of the Novel also if you wish to see the extended review.

Ruins and pirates and dinosaurs, oh my!

*****

Journey to Sargava, where pirates are rampant, ruins need exploring, and colonialism is very much a current issue! Another rousing tale of adventure staring Mirian and Jekka, further exploring the past of the Sargava region, and the themes of immigration and displacement. A must read.
