Once a student of alchemy with the dark scholars of the Technic League, Alaeron fled their arcane order when his conscience got the better of him, taking with him a few strange devices of unknown function. Now in hiding in a distant city, he's happy to use his skills creating minor potions and wonders - at least until the back-alley rescue of an adventurer named Jaya lands him in trouble with a powerful crime lord. In order to keep their heads, Alaeron and Jaya must travel across wide seas and steaming jungles in search of a wrecked flying city and the magical artifacts that can buy their freedom. Yet the Technic League hasn't forgotten Alaeron's betrayal, and an assassin armed with alien weaponry is hot on their trail....

Alchemist: I'm so smart. why won't the okay looking girl i saved love me?
The main char gets tiresome within the first chapter, and the story doesn't make up for that until the conclusion.
"Two stories in one"
Loved the story and the back story all in one. All the lands traveled each unique and Pathfinder true. I look forward to the next book in the series.
"Classic and fun"
A good story. Good characters, good narrative.
I loved how it ended. Only the political correct aspects kept this book from 5 stars.
"Great start to a great series"
Developed characters, and a engrossing story that is above your basic fantasy tropes. pathfinder tales delivers again!
"Fun and awesome."
I wish Victor Bevine narrated all books. He always portrays the characters smoothly and gives their dialogue a natural flowing essence.
