  1. Technically 4.5, but very worthy of rounding to 5 stars Disclaimer I know the authorke really know her as I have hugged her tight many times, although it has been entirely too long since the last hug That being said, I am not one to be biased in my reviews I have no problem letting a friend know whether I like or dislike something they have written This piece of workI just happened to have thoroughly enjoyed.To start and for clarification, I have absolute no knowledge of the Pathfinder Roleplayi [...]


  2. As I said in some of my updates, you have to go into any Pathfinder or other similar gaming system branded book with some expectations of format, world lore, etc I knew going in that the story would certainly have a Pathfinder campaign feel to it, and to a degree, it did However, it had than that some depth, some history, some lore, and some creative use of creatures and motivations.Overall, I saw promise in the book Wagner s first shows she gets it , and has a ton of potential to write some gr [...]


  3. This was a fast paced, action packed story I ve not done any gaming in the Pathfinder world, so I m sure I missed a lot of contextual background stuff, but the story stood out just fine on its own If anything, I d say the pace was maybe too fast, at times, but again, I enjoyed it Reading this book definitely makes me excited to read Wagner s new unrelated novel that s coming out soon, An Oath of Dogs.


  4. There are cannibals and scholarwarriors and lycanthropes and desperate battles and adventure aplenty, but what makes this story shine are the human connections.


  5. Review Skinwalkers A Pathfinder Tale June 13, 2014 Cape RustJenderda has gone home to escape her pirate past It happens that Jenderda lives in a stark rough island chain known as the Ironbound Archipelago, which is dominated by Nordic culture, longships and all Jenderda wants to settle down and raise her son away from the swashbuckling life she led She returned to find her childhood home ransacked, her father brutally murdered, and her sister missing a presumed dead, thanks to raiders Many years [...]


  6. First, I want to say that I was torn in picking a rating for this book If I had the option, I d have given it 3.5 stars That being said, this was a solid first novel from Wagner, and it did a good job driving characters and plot from a dramatic beginning through a middle trying to unravel the puzzle of what was happening, and to a satisfying conclusion Skinwalkers is about the ex pirate Jendara, now living a simpler life in the Ironbound Archipelago These are viking islands, off the coast of the [...]


  7. This is another of the Pathfinder Tales books set in the Paizo Pathfinder world of Golarion, a fantasy world where magic abounds, monsters teem, and people solve many of their problems by turning to swords In this story, we find the barbarian Jendara returned home to the northern islands in the Ironbound Archipelago She is the captain of a ship and has committed piracy in the past, and she has come home to her roots to put the past behind her and raise her deaf mute son, Kran Kran s father, the [...]


  8. The author of this book was my best friend when I was a child, so I could have loved the book, even if it sucked.Luckily for me, because I am a terrible liar, it didn t suck Instead I found that reading Skinwalkers was like being with my friend again.It was not a comfortable read, but it made me stop and think about things The story has all the usual elements, a solid hero with a deep love of family, and a vaguely mysterious past, faithful companions, a villain creepy enough to bring out a real [...]


  9. I thoroughly enjoyed this story, partly because the setting is my favorite region of the Pathfinder Campaign Setting, the Lands of the Linnorm Kings the Viking like culture that most closely resembles the setting of my own campaign While not great literature by any means, the story is engaging, the characters have some depth, and while many of the plot elements are somewhat predictable, that s not necessarily a bad thing .


  10. This is a very good story If I was able to I would give it 3,5 stars This is the debut novel by Wendy N Wagner and sometimes it shows Some parts are a bit predictable, and some decisions made by the characters seem a bit strange But other then that this is a nice modern meaning a bit dark fantasy story in the pathfinder world.I will keep an eye open for books by Wendy N Wagner.


  11. If you like ladies doing Things and Stuff, this is so for you Aw yeah The cover suits the book so well, too Lovely pairing.



  12. Skinwalkers pits an axe wielding ex pirate against a horde of marauders that can change into wild animals pretty cool stuff


  13. A really great book good pacing for action and drama A neat, tight plot that twists and doubles back on itself to great effect I enjoyed it



  14. A good story in a new part of Golarion The heroine is interesting and multidimensional, and the story is always exciting The end seemed a bit compact, though I hope we get from Wendy Wagner.
