Top Customer Reviews
Though I can't really recommend it, I do want to pick of the next copy of the adventures of Varrian and Radovan.
Without spoiling the plot - I felt it was an interesting plot, well written with interesting characters. In the end you hope to find out more about the two heroes - the Half-Elven Pathfinder Varian Jeggare and his Devil-blooded bodyguard Radovan.
So what is Golarion? It is a fantasy world that was build for the Pathfinder roleplaying game. The Pathfinders Society is a group of adventurers and tomb raiders. The closest analogy of books I read is probably the Harper Series based in the Forgotten Realms.
So to whom would I recommend the book?
If you are a Pathfinder player and like fantasy - then this is a great way to read more about some areas of the world without spoiling adventures you plan to play.
If you don't care about Pathfinder or Golarion, then this is still a solid fantasy novel that I can recommend.
Is there a downside? As mentioned in the header - this is the very first book in a series. While Paizo has lined up more authors (Elaine Cunningham who wrote the second of the harper books being the next) to write more stories it looks currently like a slow schedule (one book a quarter) and as success isn't guaranteed. If you are looking for many books to read in a short time you might want to wait or look for a different series right now.
A solid 4 star rating from me. I recomend this one, easily, to everyone who likes fantasy, mystery, and a good adventure.
