The descriptions are vivid, the action is exciting and well described and the plot takes twists and turns that were unexpected.

While Acril is indeed a villain he is a very interesting character and far from the only villain in the story.

As the first Pathfinder Tales book written by Howard Andrew Jones, Plague of Shadows does not disappoint. It is a fast-paced sword and sorcery romp, combining interesting characters, exciting story lines and descriptive writing to ensure that you will not want to put this book down.
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 my favorite book of the Pathfinder Tales so far. It earns a solid PG under the MPAA rating system. This book was a fun quest. As I read it, I felt like I was running through an adventure. There are some mature themes in it (racism, love/loss, violence, death, quest for power), but nothing that you wouldn't find in any novel read in a Jr High/High School English class. This book has a very strong female lead. I would rate this as a Teen+ book, highly enjoyable to all ages above 13.

Good adventuring with a nice angle, as someone else noted, "what happens when elves get too old for this s*&^?" A blend of D&D adventuring with tones of Jirel of Jory and the western, Unforgiven. The payoffs here are setup through characters, hard truths and exposed lies. I look forward to Jones next entry in the Pathfinder universe, and I need to check out some of the other authors and novels of this world.

Format: Paperback
Howard Andrew Jones is a famous proponent of Sword and Sorcery as well as a former editor of Flashing Swords ezine. So it was with some surprise and a lot of interest that I noticed he had written a novel with a female lead character for the Pathfinder series. What I found was a solid fantasy novel which with very minor changes could have run independently of the Pathfinder universe. His female elf protagonist was handled with thoughtful subtlety and there were enough surprise twists and turns to the plot to keep everyone happy. This novel is a credit to Jones and to Pathfinder, although I found the artificial constraints requiring Jones to work his very solid plot into the spell system of the game just annoying enough to keep me from giving this a five star rating.

Plague of Shadows by Howard Andrew Jones

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.

This book is a lot of fun once it gets going. The first few chapters can be a bit slow but are necessary to introduce the characters and the dynamics of their relationships and problems. The descriptions are vivid, the action is exciting and well described and the plot takes twists and turns that were unexpected.

I look forward to more fiction from Mr. Jones.
