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.

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.
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.
"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
"Great start to a great series!"
I think that the Prince of Wolves stands out as one of the better fantasy audiobooks I have listened to
The atmosphere of the country they were in plus the tension caused by the separation of the two main characters really drove the story.
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.
It was a solid well paced story, the two main characters have a good relationship that made me laugh a few times.
Cant wait to finish the second book in this series!
Vivid, involving mystery told in an interesting way. Stands alone as a great fantasy novel.
"One of my favorites "
They style of storytelling took a bit to get acquainted with, but now I love it!
"Captures the game!"
Really love Gross's characters... the back & forth narration of 2 different views from 2 different backgrounds is great. Heard Lord of Runes before this and enjoyed that performance a little more, but this narrator was still top notch.
"Wish I had read it earlier"
being tired of werewolf stories I avoided this book until recently. I was pleasantly surprised and wish I had picked it up earlier. that being said I read this after a few other Dave Gross novels with Varian Jagarea and Radovan, and I had no issues with reading them out of order. The narrator did an awesome job of making the characters stand apart from one another.
Paul Boehmer does an amazing job portraying the two main characters. Definitely a good read!
I was looking for some fun, pulp fiction and I just hated this.
It was boring, with in compelling narratives and characters.
I hoped for more
