Publisher's Summary

A pirate captain of the Inner Sea, Torius Vin makes a living raiding wealthy merchant ships with his crew of loyal buccaneers. Few things matter more to Captain Torius than ill-gotten gold-but one of those is Celeste, his beautiful snake-bodied navigator. When a crafty courtesan offers the pirate crew a chance at the heist of a lifetime, it's time for both man and naga to hoist the black flag and lead the Stargazer's crew to fame and fortune. But will stealing the legendary Star of Thumen chart the corsairs a course to untold riches-or send them all to a watery grave?

    "Fine story, terrible narrator"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Yes there is. I only got about 2 chapters through the book before I have to stop and delete it. The one thing I would change about this book is that SOMEONE WITH MORE LIFE NEEDS TO NARRATE IT.


    Would you be willing to try another one of John Pruden’s performances?

    NEVER. This man gave such a soulless, mono toned, grammar stunted performance. The worst I have heard so far from audible. He didn't take any pauses where he should, like at a comma or at the end of a sentence. There was no LIFE to his narration, and there was very little to any difference in character voices.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm pretty sure any random person off the street could do a better job at narration

    "Good "Heist" Story"

    This book surprised me a little. I went into it expecting a Pirate adventure on the high seas. What I actually got was an Ocean's 11 style heist story with very little action. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy a good heist story too, so I did end up liking this book. The main plan revolving around the plot was pretty complicated and some parts of it were not really made clear from the beginning, so I was a little confused at certain points, wondering where this was all going. On the positive side, I thought the characters were all fleshed out well and very colorful, with their own personalities and quirks.

    As far as the narration, it did take a little getting used to. I had to get about 4 chapters in before I could really focus on the story, and I didn't really like the voice he settled on for the main protagonist. I thought everyone else sounded good though, and once I settled in, I found it was mostly a smooth listen.

    "Loved It"

    I have this book physically and had a hard time getting more than a few chapters in. however this made me delve much further into the story.

    It took me a little while to get used to the reader. often the voices he used for some of the characters got swapped, but I have been told I am overly critical on things like that. I still enjoyed the cadence of the reader and hopefully look forward to him reading the next story.

    I love fantasy stories with rogueish type main characters, Chris Jackson's depth of knowledge of how ships work and interact are woven perfectly into this story and give a great insight on shipwork and ship crews that many in the same genre overlook.

    "My first Pathfinder Tales novel..."

    ....now I want to listen to all of them! Great story and as a player of Pathfinder table top games, I loved drawing the comparison between classes and abilities my friends and I play with already. Absolutely hilarious dialogue and always intriguing. I could even GM a game with this storyline. Now to download the next one!

    "A Rich Tapestry fo Adventure"
    Any additional comments?

    Pirate's Honor is a Pathfinder book, based in the world and lore of the tabletop RPG game. As a player of Pathfinder and Dungeons and Dragons, it felt like coming home. I have to be honest, even as a tabletop gamer, I never really found much drive to read books set in the gaming worlds. It wasn't until meeting Chris that I decided to give a game book a whirl.

    I am glad I did. I was always afraid that reading gaming books would make me cringe, that it would be stunted, just a clear attempt of a writer to narrate their own game campaign. WOW, was I wrong. I should have known better.

    Pirate's Honor had adventure, dialogue, well-fleshed-out characters, and was just plain a joy to read (or have read to me, as I listened through Audible). Sure, I sort of expected fights to be awkward... but I was wrong about how that would go, too. This book was ridiculously exciting, and was nothing like reading, watching, or playing Pathfinder itself. It was a novel first, a gaming world second. THAT was a winning move for me.

    I love how Jackson really thinks of his readers. He's a subtle writer, giving the reader hints of insight into future events and conflicts with just enough advance notice for you to guess at what's going to happen. He encourages the reader to think, to try and figure out things, before you realize what's really happening. Sometimes, I was even right. But he manages to keep me surprised along with his characters, and that is just plain brilliant. And he gives an ending that satisfies. I am ready to dig into the next one!

    "pretty solid book"

    the author writes very well but honestly I think the protagonist is kind of a prick and I'd really rather just have Celeste. Some of the plot elements were a bit heavy handed but overall I enjoyed it. I think my favorite thing is how the author handled the world of Golarion and all the fun pathfinder stuff.

    seriously though, my only real complaint is the main character. I just didn't like him at all. he felt like an author self insert character and I didn't like how he has so many women throwing themselves at him. the fact that he generally didn't take them up on it doesn't really make it better because all that's really doing is using the women as props to show how good and honorable he is. again, it just made it feel rather heavily like author self insert and cheapened the book.

    beyond my one gripe, however, the book is actually very good and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to it. I will probably start the sequel tomorrow.
