5.0 out of 5 stars Stalk this one at your lesuire 10 Nov. 2013
By Anime Lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Something is killing villagers in the River Kingdoms. Head Guards Ranger Elyana and her good friend the half-orc Drelm must gather a group of hunters to kill the beast and protect the town they have come to call home - especially Drelm who is in love with a very important lady. Joined by a mixed group of fighters, magic users, and the rare gunslinger, they head out on a mission of justice. But what starts out as hunting a beast takes a deadly turn as they learn more of the creature and makes Elyana think there is more than meets the eye, and could there be someone who is hunting them?

this book follows David Gross's formula of telling the story in the eyes of three people, Elyana, Drelm, and the gunslinger bounty hunter Lissette. I came to enjoy each character from Elyana's desire to help people, to Drelm showing that not all half-orc are monsterous brutes, to the past that Lisette has and how she came to be the person she is. The environments you travel through from the town, to the mysterious Sevenarches are well written and described beautifully, and the combat sequences are well done, from the simple sword swing to the use of firearms (first time I have read is this series of guns being used) and shows the advantages and disadvantages of each. I would say this book is a strong addition to the tales series and will love to see if he writes another book with Lissette in it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good addition to the Pathfinder Tales 6 Mar. 2014
By Jeffrey Prall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This story seems to be a simple monster hunt, then gets more interesting. You may not get all the answers to the mystery you were looking for, and if you have played RPGs you may not care as to that. I was bothered by the villain having only a very loose reason for doing what they were, and the grander purpose was only hinted at.
I found the chapters from each of the 3 main characters to be mixed. I enjoy Elyana's, I was conflicted by Lisette's, I groaned at Drelm's. The author writes each chapter as seen by these 3 characters.
Elyana is perceptive and smart, capable and clever. Her chapter's reflect this. The seasoned Elf veteran ranger.
Lisette, well, I was expecting the iconic gunslinger Lisette from Pathfinder. No, for one, this Lisette is a Chelixian Human. Her motivations and development are fairly standard fantasy cliche. I forgive that to a degree. The cunning Human veteran Gunslinger.
Drelm. Drelm is an idiot. He is a good man, half orc really, and the book stresses that he is a good half orc facing prejudice enough, with the intellectual depth of a teaspoon. His chapters reflect his lack of thought, curiousity, and general Abadar worshiping Lawful Goodness. He is a skilled fighter and a loyal companion. Perhaps the author thought to write him as being a simple man, with simple goals..... in any event, the overall effect irritated me that i longed to finish his chapters to return to Elyana's and Lisette's.
Most of the rest of the cast is disposable monster bait, you don't care one lick when they die. Sad, but that is also a standard fantasy trait.
The action is good, the battles are vivid, Elyana attempting to work out the mystery, Lisette battling her past: these are all the reasons to read this book if you like the genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my newest Must-Read authors 27 Feb. 2014
By Douglas R Van Dyke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I read his previous Pathfinder entry, (Plague of Shadows?), and this follows the adventures of Elyana Sadrastis and Drelm. What appeals to me, as a gamer as well as an author, is how well Mr Jones writes about groups of adventurers and their inner drama. And I don't mean drama in a bad way! Once again, a group of blades and magic-users set out under Elyana. They set out to hunt a beast marauding the countryside, but there are plenty of secrets inside the group as well. They may very well be their worst enemies! As another reviewer said, this is the first time I've read muskets and flintlock pistols introduced into the novels, and it was done well. Several new characters are introduced which could very well star in their own sequels.

There is a lot of action, suspense, and edge-of-your-seat anticipation. There is, perhaps, one plot twist too many, but enjoyable nevertheless.

4.0 out of 5 stars Full Throttle Fantasy Adventure 14 Nov. 2013
By John C. Hocking - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Jones returns to the Pathfinder universe with a novel that lands on its feet and takes off at a sprint.
This is epic fantasy with a jolt of 100 proof sword & sorcery-- kind of like a limousine with a turbocharger. You get an epic background, fantastical cultures, sweeping landscapes, and a rich setting populated by well drawn characters, but you get all this while the story is blitzing along from action scene to plot twist to action scene. No down time at all.
The heroes assemble a diverse team of specialists to track and kill a rampaging monster that is as mysterious as it is lethal. They shortly discover peril coming at them from every direction, including within the group, and that the creature they're hunting may be more than a match for all of them. Great fun and one of the fastest-reading fantasy novels I've found in years.
5.0 out of 5 stars A fine example of momentum at work 14 July 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I finished reading "Stalking the Beast" last night and enjoyed it thoroughly! Things meandered a bit and took time to gain momentum, but the characterization and climax(es) were super solid. Definitely worth reading. :D
