Howls in the Dark

For half-elven Pathfinder Varian Jeggare and his devil-blooded bodyguard Radovan, things are rarely as they seem. Yet not even the notorious crime-solving duo is prepared for what they find when a search for a missing Pathfinder takes them into the gothic and mist-shrouded mountains of Ustalav. Beset on all sides by noble intrigue, mysterious locals, and the deadly creatures of the night, Varian and Radovan must use both sword and spell to track the strange rumors to their source and uncover a secret of unimaginable proportions, aided in their quest by a pack of sinister werewolves and a mysterious mute priestess. But it'll take more than merely solving the mystery to finish this job. For shadowy figures have taken note of the pair's investigations, and the forces of darkness are set on making sure neither man gets out of Ustalav alive...

From fan-favorite author Dave Gross comes a new fantastical mystery set in the award-winning world of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.

Great book if your running the Carrion Crown AP.

4/5

I believe four stars is a good rating for this book. It's true that the start was a little slow and somewhat hard to follow but that may be a failing on my part for not being able to keep up with the names.

If you haven't read Prince of Wolves all the way though then you can't really give a true option of it. The action in it is a bit slim, preferring to focus on the mystery side of the land of Ustalav, which was a refreshing change from what I've been reading.

I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to play or DM the Carrion Crown Adventure path. It will give you a great feel for the country side. I have just picked up the second book by Dave Gross and look forward to continuing my adventure with the Pathfinder and his Hell spawn.


A good read

4/5

To honest it took me three goes to get into this book. I received it in late February but only yesterday able to read past the start. The beginning is a little too slow fir my liking but after the first couple of chapters it picks up. A good solid read and a great start to the tales line of Pathfinder products from Paizo.


Best suited for a young audience

2/5

This book isn't terrible, but it's a cut below the writing that can be seen in the rule books and modules. I'm not too big a fan 1st person perspective, and I found the character's internal monologue to be unconvincing. A younger reader probably wouldn't split hairs in the same way, and would probably be very happy with the comic-bookish action and story flow. I put it down about 1/3rd of the way through.


I love Radovan.

4/5

When I first picked up this book I struggled to get into the story. The first chapter is a very painful read-though of a really long, boring letter with no action. Then it transitions to some court intrigue which nearly made me put the book down...

I am glad I pushed through the frustrating bits, the book overall is an excellent read with lots of likeable characters and a good bit of well exciting, cinematic action sequences. There is also just the perfect amount of romance in the book as far as I'm concerned (which is to say enough where it drives plot in fun ways without getting sloppy).

This is somewhere between 3-4 stars for me due largely to the slow start. Radovan and some of the secondary characters really bring this story alive.


Excellent Start to the Pathfinder Tales line!!!

4/5

Thanks for the kind words, Ssalarn.

One day I'd love to write at least a story with Arnisant as the protagonist. Goblins beware!

I want more from Arnisant! I loved the attention and character development he got in Master of Devils and was sad to see him back in an ancillary role during Queen of Thorns.

BTW, have you seen this contest? An Arnisant entry would be very interesting.

Sounds like something for the webfiction... nudge, nudge.

Is there ever going to be a PFS chronicle for Prince of Wolves? It's the only Pathfinder Tales without one, as far as I can tell.

It has one.

I am rereading Prince of Wolves. Well, I'm rereading the entire Varian Jeggare/ Radovan series, and I'm currently in Prince of Wolves.

I really enjoy the way that Dave Gross writes Radovan. Some of what I like is embodied in this line that I just encountered:

"Despite their frightening appearances, not a one of [the villagers] tried to bury me alive or set me on fire. That made them my favorite villagers in all of Ustalav, so far."
