Release Date: August 9, 2016

I was having a crisis of faith, folks. Specifically a loss of faith in the extended world of Pathfinder. For you see, I have read at least a half dozen of the Pathfinder Tales over the last few months and had become discouraged that I would find any that would please me. Luckily, I picked up Pathfinder Tales: Starspawn, for it has made everything okay again. Blending classic sword and sorcery with tales of the Old Ones, this novel more than makes up for some of the shortcomings I’ve seen in other books from this series. It is not without its flaws, but the tale itself is amazing and well written, two essential components in any fictional story.

Pathfinder Tales: Hellknight
Paperback l Kindle
Author: Liane Merciel
Paizo Publishing
Release Date: April 5, 2016

Everyone understands the concept of good versus evil; it’s a tale as old as time itself. But how about lawful good, neutral good, and lawful evil versus chaotic evil? That puts a twist on things, right? Especially when you take into account the fact that the chaotic evil is long dead. Pathfinder Tales: Hellknight is a story of love, redemption, and the undead.

Don’t worry, no necrophilia here; just a lot of death and destruction. You know, exactly what you expect from a fantasy novel based on a roleplaying game. Want to know more? Keep on reading!

Pathfinder Tales: Pirate's Prophecy Book Review

Pathfinder Tales: Pirate’s Prophecy
Softcover | Kindle
By Chris A. Jackson
Paizo Publishing | Tor Books
Release date: February 2, 2016

I’ll read almost anything. After working amongst books for the better part of two decades, being picky seems restrictive. So anytime the great folks here at Geeks of Doom offer me a book to review, I normally accept. Such was the case here, with Pathfinder Tales: Pirate’s Prophecy. This was my first journey into the Pathfinder franchise. Not to say I’m not familiar with it. I mean I know it’s an alternative game system to the D&D that I grew up with, but I’ve never played it, per se. However, I went into it expecting something akin to a role-playing game in prose form. Lucky for me, that’s essentially what I got!

I want to take a different approach with this review, though. I didn’t realize until halfway through the book that it was the third in a series. There were several scenes where I felt I was missing something and, truth be told, I was. So, I’ll review the storyline briefly but I want to talk about the content, as well. As I know next to nothing about the author, Chris A. Jackson, I shall not dwell too long on him at all.
