A sword and his friend 3 May 2013
By Wulfstan - Published on
Format: Paperback
Rodrick is a rakish, raffish rogue, a dab hand with a blade and a con, who is partners with just about the most powerful magic sword in the whole region. Note I didn't say "owns"- said sword is part of the duo/partnership/friendship of Hrym (the sword) and Roderick (the human rogue).

I really liked this touch. The two really acted like long term partners, with constant bickering and jokes (and you'll get a few chuckles here and there too). It's also nice to see a powerful magic item- not many characters in D&D/Frp Fantasy fiction are known for their powerful magic items.

I also really enjoyed the very realistic character of Roderick, who reminds me more than a bit of Cugel the Clever. Not a "good guy" nor a "bad guy" just a realistic guy out for the main chance and some gold. Roderick is not a super-swordsman (altho he does wield a super-sword), nor is he supernaturally fast, smart, lucky or anything. He's just a regular clever guy who lucked into a partnership with a powerful magic item.

But his quest partners are anything but `regular": Rod & Hrym get hired by a VERY mysterious and odd duo of sorcerer and cleric, who are weird, strange, eldritch and a host of other adjectives- except "normal". How their mysteries unveil is part of the fun of this book.

And, another part of the fun is the overall `tone". Tim Pratt, being a Hugo award winning author, didn't feel the need to make this book "dark & gritty" as so many other recent Fantasy novels are. Instead the light tone- which doesn't mean there aren't some pretty dark and scary moments. In fact the real identity of the sorcerer and the ultimate plan of her priestly boss could cause a few nitemares. Really creepy & scary. It's a tribute to the writing skills of the author that he manages to carry off a over all light in tone book but is able to segue into some terrifying and dark encounters so very easily.

Very readable, with plenty of action, banter, magic, mysteries and a great twist ending.

The Bastard and the Sword 29 May 2013
By Anime Lover - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Roderick and Hyrm and a great pair, true Roderick is a thief and Hyrm is a sentient ice sword but both dream of one thing - gold. But when a misunderstanding with the brother of a serving wench comes up, the offer from a mysterious sorceress and a hooded cleric sounds like a good idea. Escort them north to find an ancient artifact, and get their weights in gold. But things are not all they appear as they get closer to the goal, who can be trusted and how does Hyrm fit into the plan.

This was a good book, I loved the banter between the two main characters, they acted like a married couple rather than friends. The author really put a lot of life into the characters, with their histories and the fact that the two made a great pair. I do hope that they make a sequel, or a series. A most enjoyable read

Be Wary My Friend, of Talking Swords and Psychotic Tavern Wenches 4 Dec. 2014
By Richard Colton Lawson - Published on
Format: Paperback
First let me start off by saying that while the story is awesome it is the dialogue where this novels rises heads and shoulders above others, similar to Pratt's equally good City of the Fallen Sky. Hrym is hands down my favorite Tales character that I've had the joy of reading. I'll come right out and say it, I keep a little notebook where I write down my favorite pages and lines in it. Liar's Blades and City of the Fallen Sky each have more pages to themselves than the rest of the Tales novels combined. The dialogue is just that good.

Also this novel contains the absolute best way to kill a Final Boss. Period.

I can't recomend this novel enough.

I want this guy to GM for my group 30 Mar. 2014
By T. S. Richards - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great read. I love Pratt's pathfinder stuff and this was no exception. I believe the best pathfinder or D&D novels are the ones you could actually see unfolding in a gaming session, and Pratt really knows how to pull that off. He makes good use of the vast and well established setting that Paizo has built, while making sure to keep the focus on the character level and show us that world through their eyes. It's a great, quick read.

Magical talking Sword...need I say more 7 July 2014
By E. L. Romine - Published on
Format: Paperback
Awesome book. I loved the relationship of the Anti-Hero and his Magical Talking sword. The conversations of Swordbearer and sword was hilarious. This is a must have. I only regret not reading the first story about how Rodrick first found Hyrm first. But, its totally not necessary, this book is very self contained and a great story.
