Publisher's Summary

For elven pathfinder Varian Jeggare and his devil-blooded assistant 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 mist-shrouded mountains of gothic 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. But it'll take more than merely solving the mystery to finish this job, for a shadowy figure has taken note of the pair's investigations, and is 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.

Like the tabletop RPG Adventure I always wanted.

I am a Pathfinders tabletop gamer and thoroughly enjoyed this book. one of the things I enjoyed about it is that someone who was not at all familiar with the Pathfinder system would enjoy the story as a story. While at the same time a gamer like me sense Dave Gross' underlying understanding of the elements of the Pathfinder system and their inclusion in this Tale.
it was wonderfully written and wonderfully narrated. I thoroughly enjoyable book on all levels

excellent

the story was excellent, the mixture of intrigue, horror, and just enough love story made for a great story, read by an amazingly talented narrator. I've listened to this story a few times now and love it every time.

Interesting story, great narrator.

What did you like best about this story?

Well structured and interesting from mixed perspectives before coming together for the final chapters.

Have you listened to any of Paul Boehmer’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I've recently listened to the next book of the series and he is just as good. So far my favorite in the Pathfinder Tales series. Brings life and uniqueness to all the characters.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The twist is really surprising and worked well into the story.
