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.

Play Pathfinder, never thought about reading it

Would you listen to Liar's Blade again? Why?

Most definitely, I enjoyed it far more than I thought I would. I bought it because I was looking for a light fantasy novel and it's got rogues, and well I love me some rogues.


What did you like best about this story?

I love the world, I've been playing a lot of the Pathfinder campaigns with my gaming group and reading this I hear about places and events from the campaigns that intertwine into the story wonderfully, not to mention the creatures and locations that are all too familiar to me as well.


What does William Dufris bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He did a great job, each character had a distinct voice and they were a pleasure to listen to. Though I just picked up the sequel to this book: Liar's Island and I was disappointed to find there was a new narrator and well... I don't like the new guy as much.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listened to 3/4 of the book in one sitting, it was enjoyable but it was light, it wasn't a book that I couldn't wait to get back into or dreamt about what would happen next. It was just a light enjoyable read.

Never trust a sword with a personality.

I have been reading and listening to audiobooks from Forgotten Realms, and thoroughly enjoyed them. I even delved Into the GreyHawk series with the Justicar. I have to say that I was not sure about Pathfinder but after listening, I'm thoroughly hooked on the adventures of Hrym and Roderick.
