Publisher's Summary

Nobody cheats death. A warrior haunted by his past, Salim Ghadafar serves as a problem-solver for a church he hates, bound by the goddess of death to hunt down those who would rob her of her due. Such is the case in the desert nation of Thuvia, where a powerful merchant on the verge of achieving eternal youth via a magical elixir is mysteriously murdered, his soul kidnapped somewhere along its path to the afterlife. The only clue is a magical ransom note, offering to trade the merchant's successful resurrection for his dose of the fabled potion. But who would have the power to steal a soul from the boneyard of Death herself?
Enter Salim, whose keen mind and contacts throughout the multiverse should make solving this mystery a cinch. There's only one problem: The investigation is being financed by Neila Anvanory, the dead merchant's stubborn and aristocratic daughter. And she wants to go with him. Along with his uninvited passenger, Salim must unravel a web of intrigue that will lead them far from the blistering sands of Thuvia on a grand tour of the Outer Planes, where devils and angels rub shoulders with fey lords and mechanical men, and nothing is as it seems....

Give pathfinder the benefit of the doubt.

Giving a pathfinder novel the benefit of doubt was probably a great thing to do. I cannot comment on any other novels from the series, however, this being my first pathfinder novel I was really impressed. The story was well woven on various facets, and the plot bounced around between characters which was good writing, the story shines through as the adventurers actually travel in the imagination of the writer and everything in the narration is well paced, clear and engaging to the ears.

So yes, although I am a D&D and forgotten realms fan, the pathfinder novels, thanks to James L.Sutter and Ray Porter have definitely pricked my ears.

Bit ropey

It was okay, nothing awful but it very much was two people bouncing from location to new location seemingly randomly. Wouldn't again
