Warrior bug women from planet CastrovelJeremy Corff —
A fun ride, and hopefully not the last we will hear of Gideon and friends.
Robots and RascalsJeremy Corff —
Tim Pratt continues to sharpen his wit with these novels. The adventures of Alearon and Skiver (not to mention Roderick and Hrym) are some of the funniest, most biting books in the Pathfinder Tales. There is even room for some much needed words of wisdom from Skiver in the later half.
Excellent as always.
A different kind of adventureJeremy Corff —
A large portion of the Pathfinder Tales books are high adventures, but Crusader Road is a different kind of story. A family piece, sharing equal parts settler narrative and fantasy, it forges a strong narrative from the disparate parts. I hope this is not the last we hear from the Vishov family.
Mystery and AdventureJeremy Corff —
I really enjoyed Stalking the Beast, and in many ways felt like Plague of Shadows was just setting the scene for this story. Howard Andrew Jones definitely manages to top his previous effort. Looking forward to the further adventures of our elven warrior and mysterious gunslinger.
Radovan and Jeggare go to HellJeremy Corff —
Well, not Hell so much as the Worldwound, but the differences are academic. As ever, the adventures of everyone's favorite half elf and tiefling do not disappoint. If you read no other Pathfinder Tales books, read the David Gross ones. You will not be sorry.
Not my favoriteJeremy Corff —
I liked the characters in Wizard's Mask, but not the adventure they go on. Too many chase scenes, too little of the characters themselves. We are never quite clear if there is a romance, and the villains are as flat and interesting and a frisbee. Not a stand out.
Pirate's DelightJeremy Corff —
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.
Tim Pratt is on fire!Jeremy Corff —
While I enjoyed City of Fallen Stars, it just does not hold a candle to Liar's Blade. Incredibly sharp dialogue, loveable scoundrels, and crazy adventure combine to make this one of the best Pathfinder Tales books.
As an added bonus, there is a special treat for any fans of the Fafhrd and Grey Mouser stories.
Old School Adventure!Jeremy Corff —
If you ever spent a Saturday morning enjoying the adventures of a family that got whisked away to a strange dimension on a river rafting trip, this is the book for you. Continues a long tradition of Lost World stories, with solid characters and writing. Definitely worth the read.
Gross continues to impressJeremy Corff —
If I had one complaint about this book, it would be that it is not Master of Devils. Radovan and Jeggare continue to be Golarion's dynamic duo, I'm just not sure they are ever going to match their crazy martial arts hijinks. Still, one of the best Pathfinder Tales books, without question.
Good Times!Jeremy Corff —
Tim Pratt has a gift for loveable rogues and clever dialogue that do not disappoint. Well worth the read!
FairJeremy Corff —
I'm of two minds about this book. On the one hand, it creeps up on epic mysteries that left me wanting to learn more. On the other hand the characters are really pretty flat (with the exception of an interesting Troll.) Krunzle, in particular, never really comes alive.
Good ReadJeremy Corff —
I enjoyed Death's Heretic, at least in part because of the epic scope of the adventure. I'm still not entirely sure Salim's philosophy holds up to rigorous inspection, but I get the sense neither is he.
Fantastic!Jeremy Corff —
Probably my favorite of the Radovan and Jeggare stories - epic wushu adventures in the Far East! Politcal Drama! Martial Arts action! An entire side story about a heroic dog (best part!)
If you like fantasy novels and kung fu movies, this is the book for you.
Light, but funJeremy Corff —
An "Ocean's Eleven" style crime caper, it keeps the action and suspense going through out. Light on character development, but with a lot of daring exploits to make up for it.
Fun, with great potential for the futureJeremy Corff —
I liked a lot in this book (even though there is a continuity error with Zon-Kuthon) but felt like the best part was the setup for a few of the character's further adventures.
A fun read but...Jeremy Corff —
The story and characters make for a fun read, but I felt the ending left us with a situation that wasn't really in keeping with the rest of the book. Leaving the characters with that much power is problematic for the future.
ExcellentJeremy Corff —
Thoroughly enjoyed the book. The Radovan and Jeggare stories are easily the best of the Pathfinder Tales.
A Good ReadJeremy Corff —
More serious than many of the Pathfinder tales, but better because of it. Couldn't put it down. I hope we hear from Mrs. Wagner again!
