Publisher's Summary

For elven pathfinder Varian Jeggare and his devil-blooded assistant Radovan, things are rarely as they seem. Yet not even the notorious crime-solving duo is prepared for what they find when a search for a missing pathfinder takes them into the mist-shrouded mountains of gothic Ustalav. Beset on all sides by noble intrigue, mysterious locals, and the deadly creatures of the night, Varian and Radovan must use both sword and spell to track the strange rumors to their source and uncover a secret of unimaginable proportions. But it'll take more than merely solving the mystery to finish this job, for a shadowy figure has taken note of the pair's investigations, and is set on making sure neither man gets out of Ustalav alive.

From fan-favorite author Dave Gross comes a new fantastical mystery set in the award-winning world of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.

Like the tabletop RPG Adventure I always wanted.

I am a Pathfinders tabletop gamer and thoroughly enjoyed this book. one of the things I enjoyed about it is that someone who was not at all familiar with the Pathfinder system would enjoy the story as a story. While at the same time a gamer like me sense Dave Gross' underlying understanding of the elements of the Pathfinder system and their inclusion in this Tale.
it was wonderfully written and wonderfully narrated. I thoroughly enjoyable book on all levels

excellent

the story was excellent, the mixture of intrigue, horror, and just enough love story made for a great story, read by an amazingly talented narrator. I've listened to this story a few times now and love it every time.

Is it worth it?

This book is written very well, it feels weird at first but it becomes more natural the longer you listen. The story line is great and full of twists and turns, can't wait to listen to the next book.

Great start to a great series!

Where does Prince of Wolves rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I think that the Prince of Wolves stands out as one of the better fantasy audiobooks I have listened to

What was one of the most memorable moments of Prince of Wolves?

The atmosphere of the country they were in plus the tension caused by the separation of the two main characters really drove the story.

Have you listened to any of Paul Boehmer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the first of his books I have listened to but on the strength of it I picked up the second in this series.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It was a solid well paced story, the two main characters have a good relationship that made me laugh a few times.

Any additional comments?

Cant wait to finish the second book in this series!

Great adventure.

Vivid, involving mystery told in an interesting way. Stands alone as a great fantasy novel.

ugh

I just could not make myself like these characters. I don't get a wizard that can't cast spells. It's a fantasy, be a rogue and get on with it.

a fop and a scoundrel go on an adventure

the two main characters of a fussy nobleman and his down to earth bodyguard are just so much fun to go through. its an engrossing story and the characters have lots of depth.

surprisingly delightful

I picked this book purely because I just started playing pathfinder recently, and I think I have exhausted the current available selection of 20+ hour fantasy books for a single credit. my experience with tie-in novels so far has been underwhelming. they tend to be kind of corny in my mind, and not terribly well written.

this book is not that kind of tie-in novel. Gross's characters really feel alive, interesting, and fun. especially when Boehmer is narrating them (he is replaced later on, unfortunately). The story itself is mature without being over-the-top, and the mysteries are legitimately compelling. great book. i'd have enjoyed it even if i didn't know a thing about pathfinder.

A bit tough to follow but good overall

I love the Pathfinder books, and I've enjoyed following the adventures of Varian and Radovan. This book was a bit tough to follow for the first third of it - lots of characters and places to try to track - but it got quite good in the second half. I'm glad I read it overall.

Interesting story, great narrator.

What did you like best about this story?

Well structured and interesting from mixed perspectives before coming together for the final chapters.

Have you listened to any of Paul Boehmer’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I've recently listened to the next book of the series and he is just as good. So far my favorite in the Pathfinder Tales series. Brings life and uniqueness to all the characters.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The twist is really surprising and worked well into the story.

Slow starter but solid story

Took me a while to get into due to the style but it fleshed out nicely. The narrator really added to the story imo and I'll be looking for more by Paul Boehner.
