Publisher's Summary

With strength, wit, rakish charm, and a talking sword named Hrym, Rodrick has all the makings of a classic hero - except for the conscience. Instead, he and Hrym live a high life as scoundrels, pulling cons and parting the weak from their gold. When a mysterious woman invites them along on a quest into the frozen north in pursuit of a legendary artifact, it seems like a prime opportunity to make some easy coin - especially if there's a chance for a double-cross. Along with a hooded priest and a half-elven tracker, the team sets forth into a land of witches, yetis, and ancient magic. As the miles wear on, however, Rodrick's companions begin acting steadily stranger, leading man and sword to wonder what exactly they've gotten themselves into...
From Hugo Award-winner Tim Pratt, author of City of the Fallen Sky, comes a bold new tale of ice, magic, and questionable morality set in the world of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.

Just a great adventure

I enjoy fantasy adventure books in general however I do believe I have gotten a little bit sick of the "Mary Sue" archetypes that litter them. This is a take on the "heroes on a quest" idea that doesn't in fact feature that many heroes. The fact that the hero of the story is in a thief only masquerading as a hero gives the story the feeling that it's going to be familiar but with a twist. Unfortunately I feel that fantasy books can easily get bogged down in its own lore and the pathfinder universe is quite thick with its own lore. This story however avoids getting stuck in an endless loop of names and towns that doesn't even matter and only really wants you to come along for the ride with the rogue and his magical sword.
