Lei è Hrym, una spada parlante, fatta di un ghiaccio che mai potrà sciogliersi, e custode dell’anima e degli incantesimi di un antico drago. Inseparabili, viaggiano per il mondo, rubando oro e oggetti preziosi, e condannando al gelo eterno chiunque osi ostacolarli. Ma, giunti sulla meravigliosa isola di Jalmeray, dovranno prepararsi a uno scontro senza precedenti. Riusciranno ingegno e coraggio a contrastare i poteri occulti del malvagio re dell’isola? E Hyrm riuscirà, ancora una volta, a salvare la vita di Rodrick?

Previously Published at TheQwillery.com Tim Pratt knows how to write a fun fantasy. Liar's Island was just what I needed after reading a stinker. It's light and refreshing, like a palette cleanser for my soul and a reminder of why I love fantasy. It has great characters, an interesting story and a gr Leggi tutto

I love these books, but wish they were easier to find. I first stumbled on Pathfinder Tales at BEA in 2013. And loved them. They are so hard to find though. NO library in the entire state of Maine owns ANY. So the only way for me to get any is to buy them, and while I love supporting authors, books

I loved this sequel. The first story was great. I love the idea of a thief and his greedy blade, who just so happen to be roped into situations where the best choice is sometimes to be the hero, whether they want to or not.

Pretty good book, but I thought the curse of Hrym was glossed over and entirely too easily dismissed. Everything just seemed so coincidental in this book that it took some enjoyment out of it.
entertaining fantasy fare with jungles, genies and sultans. The ending was a bit hurried, but the characters are well fleshed out and easy to follow in them falling from one problem into the next.
