5.0 out of 5 stars Horror and Legend mix in this tale 8 April 2014
By Anime Lover - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Ex Pirate Jenedra wants nothing more than to forget the horrors of her past and to raise her son in peace. As she readys for a trading mission before winter sets in, on a hunting trip she laughs at the old-wives tales of the skinwalkers - warriors who wear skins of animals to become more lethal. However old wives tales do have a basis in fact as she learns quickly when a group of stoneworkers are brutally slaughtered and partially eaten - just like events happened many years ago in her home village. Now she must gather support from the local islands to fight off the raids - but what happens when part of her lost past returns can she find the faith to face these ruthless killers.

The book was very good, the descriptions of the locations and people as well as the battles were carefully thought out. One twist I could see coming pretty quickly, but does not affect the story - in fact it enhanced it. Overall this was a good book like Pirates honor or the V&R series and does deserve a good read.

I've read many books over the years and as I age it is getting harder to stay interested all the way through. This held my attention and was well written. Thank you to the author for such a good read.
5.0 out of 5 stars Let Me Hear Your Warcry! 4 Dec. 2014
By Richard Colton Lawson - Published on
Format: Paperback
As others have pointed out, this is quite possibly the most visceral, horrific Tales novel to date (beating out Nightglass and Nightblade in my books), and I loved it. Not just for the fighting, or the violence, but for the simple fact of how this story showcases what people are truly capable of when you piss them off. Especially when said people is a Mother and you endanger the people she cares for.

Highly recommended.
5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Pathfinder Tales yet! 5 July 2014
By Computer, Music, and Gamer Geek - Published on
Format: Paperback
Very intense book. I must say out of the Pathfinder Tales this is tied for my favorite one. I have read a lot of the Pathfinder Tales, and this one is just awesome. It is horror, and suspense filled. It is graphic in the description of horror, and violence so just a heads up but the detail also makes the story more intense. The plot twists in the book are also really amazing.

2.0 out of 5 stars This wasn't a bad book, but it was decidedly average 6 Oct. 2014
By paddy567 - Published on
Format: Paperback
Skinwalkers is not the strongest entry in the typically reliable Pathfinder Tales series. A mediocre narrative marries to a heretofore unseen level of violence to produce a brutal, but somewhat flat novel.

Jendara is thrown back into her tumultuous past when a group of strange raiders attack her home and people. Can she solve the mystery behind these attacks and confront her own unhappy past?

This wasn't a bad book, but it was decidedly average. I felt like Wagner was always writing to a plan - but not in a good way - rather, chapters, incidences and twists all felt pre-decided, and that it was simply a matter of getting the characters in position for things to happen. It all felt a little rote to me.

This isn't helped by a dearth of characterisation. Jendara is fleshed out, but virtually no one else gets any flavour; they felt largely interchangeable to me. It doesn't help that, as a character, Jendara is pretty simple. Coupled with the simplistic narrative, I was left with what would have made a fine short story but really groaned under the weight of being a novel.

In addition the setting felt so homogenous - dare I say monotonous. The archipelago itself was boring to me, and unchanging, and the character's never got out of it except for a completely unnecessary diversion to an incongruous pathfinder library that seemed to exist only to pad the length.

Coupled with the grisly violence, which was gratuitous and failed to add anything, I didn't love this book.

If you are after a freezing setting in the pathfinder world, Elaine Cunningham's Winter Witch is a stronger book on all counts.
