Pathfinder Tales: Pirate’s Prophecy
When I read an action/adventure fantasy I expect the story to start right off and to move at a good pace, not to get bogged down at the beginning and then not really get to the real story till over 1/3 of the way through the book; and by then you are bored. Sadly this is what happens in the newest novel in the Pathfinder Tales series of books. I have read several before and they are action packed, and move at a good clip. Unfortunately this one did not, despite the good premise.
Torius Vin is captain of a ship that works for the Andorans, he goes around spying and capturing slave ships and setting the slaves free. But when ex-crewmate and spy Vreva uncovers rumors of a mythical weapon that could bring Hell onto Earth it is up to Torius Vin and his crew to stop this menace. But it takes forever to get to that point, out of 300 pages over 100 are just build up and generally boring build up as well. I sometimes found myself falling asleep while reading this one.
Out of all the books in this series, avoid this one.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
