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.

A great debut for Pathfinder Tales

4/5

The first book in the Pathfinder Tales line-

I picked this up at a local bookstore on a whim, but enjoyed it enough to subscribe to the line, which, in itself, only speaks positively for the novel. The story was interesting, though it moved a bit slow for my tastes. The print was very small in this book, but feels like it has gotten larger in subsequent tales, which is good on account of my poor eyesight. There is no map in the front of this book, unlike the newer novels, which is mildly disappointing. In alternating chapters the book shifted which character was in the main focus as well as shifting between a third and first person narrative. I found this annoying, but didn’t let it sour my opinion of the tale itself. The characters feel well developed, though the count can be a bit of a bore. There seemed to be a few minor oversights/plot holes, but nothing world shattering. Overall while reading the book I noticed the writing style seemed much more geared for adults over children, which is refreshing in the fantasy genre. Whenever I read a book I like to ask myself if I would go out of my way to find and read other works by the same author, and after reading this the answer is a resounding yes. A good read.


Excellent book, and introduction to Golarion

5/5

After some disappointments, I'd shied away from RPG-related fiction for several years. Several people around here suggested I check it out, so I did... and Dave Gross delivered. The book was excellent. It was an engaging story with developing characters; one of the interesting experiences I had while reading it is that I didn't particularly like either one of them at first, and I kind of loved them for that. ^_^ They weren't one dimensional, and Radovan and Varian very much grew on me as their story progressed.

This book was one of my introductions to Golarion, since I picked it up around when I started playing PF. It worked so well for this purpose that I've picked up other copies and used them to hook other people, and been pretty successful in those efforts. ^_^

Also, we need more Azra. ^_^


Truly an Enjoyable Read

5/5

I found the characters a lot of fun to read and was quickly drawn into the story. By the end of the book, I was wishing I already had another book about them. The development of the relationships was interesting and believable. The effect of flashing back and forth between scenes moved the story in such a way that you feel like you're traveling with them. Great book. One I could read repeatedly.


I can't wait to run a campaign in Ustalav

5/5

Prince of Wolves was an amazing novel due to it's presentation, characters, presentation of setting and plot. I enjoyed the story and feel inspired to run not only an Ustalavic campaign but campaigns with less traditional party structure for story purposes.

I enjoyed the split perspective between the two characters. I found it a bit confusing at first, as I read further it added anticipation and engagement to the character's point of view. I also found it added a bit of mystery to the story through discovery of what early events meant later in the book.

I felt the character's were unique and felt that they were presented thoroughly. I became so engaged with them that I shouted out loud for joy when I found out that there is web fiction including them and Master of Devils will be based around the same characters.

The setting of Ustalav was well represented and I feel a lot more comfortable running a campaign based there. Reading prince of Wolves cemented my purchase of Carrion Crown, Rule of Fear, and anything else based in Ustalav. I look forward to more books from Dave and am now hooked on the Pathfinder tales novels.


Good read

4/5

This was a good book. I liked the characters a lot and the story was very engaging. Dave Gross is also a really good guy and I can't wait for his next book.

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."
