'Pathfinder Volume 3: City of Secrets' continues to be a nice surprise. It's a comic book series based on an rpg system, and even though I'm not familiar with the rpg system, I like what they've done.
Our group of adventurers, led by Sorceror Seoni, finds themselves in the city of Magnimar. Wizard Ezren wants to seek out the Pathfinder Lodge to see if he can gain a seat there. Cleric Kyra wants to visit the temple of her god, in a rundown part of the city. Elf Merisiel wants to seek adventure, possibly on the other side of the law. Fighter Valeros just wants to have a good time, but before they can rest and relax, they find themselves wrapped up in a sinister mystery in the city. There are dark forces that want to take over the town. Can our party of heroes save the town of Magnimar?
Along the way, you get a flavor for places in the game with entries showing up telling you about the city or a part of town or the Pathfinder Lodge. I think it fleshes the story out as well. There are six characters in the story, but I think they keep the story mainly balanced. The book ends with a Variant Cover Gallery, which I did get to see, and the Pathfinder Chronicles RPG Appendix, which was not included in the review copy I had. Like I said, I don't play the game, but the fantasy adventure is a decent read for a fantasy fan. I like the characters and the situations they find themselves in.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Diamond Book Distributors, Dynamite Entertainment, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
