Summary

Shaia "Shy" Ratani is a clever rogue who makes her living outside of strictly legal methods. While hiding out in the frontier city of Yanmass, she accepts a job solving a nobleman's murder, only to find herself sucked into a plot involving an invading centaur army that could see the whole city burned to the ground. Shy could stop that from happening, but doing so would involve revealing herself to the former friends who now want her dead. Add in an aristocratic partner with the literal blood of angels in her veins, and Shy quickly remembers why she swore off doing good deeds in the first place.

Based on the award-winning world of the Pathfinder roleplaying game. With more than a million players worldwide, Pathfinder is the world's most popular tabletop RPG.

What a Combo

This has now become one of if not the best Pathfinder Tales I have listened to on Audible. The narrator character combo was perfect. The way the main characters inner monologue was written followed by the first smart ass voice the Narrator gave her along with great timing in delivering the little quips made this audiobook amazing. Rare is it that a Female can do male voices and not pull me out of the story. (and Males do female voices to the same end)

Not once was I pulled out of the story when she changed character voices, and the voices we're distinct. All in all this was a great and fun audiobook. Granted, I love rogueish antiheroes. so there is that.

a solid good time

This felt like a good intro to the Pathfinder universe. Some of the major factions and countries and creatures are featured. The story and characters are interesting. The main character is a "rogue who wants to do right in spite of herself" but having said that the trope was well handled and who she is as a character comes across in a substantive way to the point where I hope to see her show up again in other books. There were unexpected twists that kept things interesting and enough action and drama to keep things moving. It's an easy listen and easy to like.
Khristine Hvam did well with the voices. She brought everyone to life and nobody's character voice was too much or painful to listen to, I would feel confident to try her as a narrator again.
