Pathfinder Tales: Pirate’s Prophecy

We rated this book:

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.

Chris Hayden been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
