Pathfinder Tales: Plague of Shadows

Pathfinder Tales: Plague of Shadows - Howard Andrew Jones The story of an Elven woman who goes on a quest to save her ex-lover's life, pairing with old cronies who may or may not be helping her, this sword and sorcery tale hooked me and kept me interested the whole way through. This is unsurprising since Jones is a masterful S&S writer. Good characterizations, fun world, interesting. My first venture into Pathfinder and I liked it so much I bought campaign materials and the other novels in the series. I am also preparing to play my first game in the campaign. Highly recommended. Above the usual D&D tie-ins in my experience. Worthwhile. Highly recommended.
