Publisher's Summary

On a mysterious errand for the Pathfinder Society, Count Varian Jeggare and his hellspawn bodyguard, Radovan, journey to the distant land of Tian Xia, on the far side of the world. When disaster forces him to take shelter in a warrior monastery, "Brother" Jeggare finds himself competing with the disciples of Dragon Temple as he unravels a royal mystery. Meanwhile Radovan - trapped in the body of a devil and held hostage by the legendary Quivering Palm attack - must serve a twisted master by defeating the land's deadliest champions and learning the secret of slaying an immortal foe. Together with an unlikely army of beasts and spirits, the two companions must take the lead in an ancient conflict that will carry them through an exotic land, all the way to the Gates of Heaven and Hell and a final confrontation with the nefarious Master of Devils!

Skip it anyway

The book is the origin of a bunch of little things that will come up in the next few books, but nothing you can't cope with not knowing. Most of what comes about in the book is forgotten, or retconned instantly.

It's not that I don't like wuxia and badly dubbed shaolin kung fu films, it's that this book sucks. The dog's part ends up being the best part and that's because it seems more like a Disney ripoff.

The series is good, and you'll get far more enjoyment out of the next book along.

Big trouble in little Tian Xi

Varian and Radovan go to Pathfinder Asialand in their second adventure that sees the pair separated and forced to learn martial arts under very different and opposing circumstances. Paul Boehmer brings the two to life, as usual. I've heard him do the original Dragonlance trilogy, expertly giving voice to Raistlin and Caramon Majere, but it's Varian and Radovan that I'll remember him for.
