Pirate’s Honor, the newest Pathfinders Tales novel, is now online at Paizo.com. Here’s the description:
A pirate captain of the Inner Sea, Torius Vin makes a living raiding wealthy merchant ships with his crew of loyal buccaneers. Few things matter more to Captain Torius than ill-gotten gold—but one of those is Celeste, his beautiful snake-bodied navigator. When a crafty courtesan offers the pirate crew a chance at the heist of a lifetime, it’s time for both man and naga to hoist the black flag and lead the Stargazer’s crew to fame and fortune. But will stealing the legendary Star of Thumen chart the corsairs a course to untold riches—or send them all to a watery grave?
From award-winning author Chris A. Jackson comes a fantastical new adventure of high-seas combat and romance set in the award-winning world of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.
Nice, huh! We’re awfully excited about this book. It’s been just over a year since the first email arrived from James Sutter, Paizo Publishing’s fiction editor, signaling the start of this adventure. It’s been a wild ride, with more to come. Pirate’s Honor is expected to be released this April. I’ll be attending Paizo Con in Washington in July, but if I can get books before then, I’ll have signed copies available at Con Carolinas (Charlotte, NC, May 31 – June 2).
And how kick-ass is that cover! If you’ve read any of the other Pathfinder Tales novels, you know that the covers are pretty good depictions of a scene from the book, and this one is wicked. Although, I must say that I pictured Celeste as more beautiful than she appears here; but then, a pissed-off naga is not a pretty sight!
Anyway, it’s an honor to be included in the Pathfinder family. We’ve been playing the Pathfinder RPG game for years, and publishing a book with them is icing on the cake.
