As a great adventure with a mix of romance, there are plenty of golden nuggets throughout the book to keep you happy!
Plague of Shadows is now on my list of favorites, and I encourage you to join Elyana and Drelm on their first of what I hope will be many adventures to come.
This is another Pathfinder novel, the main character is Elyana a elven adventure. Most of her former adventurer friends are now dead, she stayed and lived near her friend Stelan who become a Lord. When her friend becomes ill with a shadow plague magical disease brought on by one of their former friend a shadow wizard named Acril. She goes on a quest to find a cure and eventually ends up searching for the Crown of Shadows. She travels with Stelan's son, Renar, Drelm a half orc loyal to the Lord, Kellius a Wizard, and Vallyn a bard that use to travel with Stelan and Elyana.
It starts with them trying to track down Acril and force him to remove the plague. Eventually they are forced to seek out the Crown of Shadows. While Acril is indeed a villain he is a very interesting character and far from the only villain in the story. In fact all the characters are well done and interesting. I don't want to give away any spoilers for the book. But the book has a little of everything that makes a fantasy book a good fantasy book. There is a dragon, wizards, evil cults, monsters, a epic quest, travel to another plane of existence in this case the shadow plane. There is enough twists and turns to keep you from knowing what's going to happen at the end and keep you involved in the story looking forward to what is going to happen next. If you are a fan of fantasy books it is worth checking out, if you are a Pathfinder fan then I strong recommend the book, to date I think it is the best of the new pathfinder novel line.
I cant even begin to dissect the plot these characters traverse other than to say its a thrill-ride, and like most of what I call good books, it escalates and speeds up the farther you get into the book, until you are completely sucked in.
I think I saw this author has written several other works and I am going to hunt them down immediately.
Along with Plane of Shadow, which is described awesomely, large parts of this story take place in Galt, which, if you did not hate before alongside its insane moronic Citizens you will after reading this Tale.
Very much recommended.
