  • After centuries of calm, the Nameless One is stirring So opens the cover copy for Shadow Prowler.A Nameless One, you say Could this possibly be some kind of evil overlord TVTropes who wants to bend an entire land to his will But surely there will be some resistance Unless Shadow Harold, master thief, can find some way to stop them A master thief named Shadow Harold , you say Could he possibly be some kind of Lovable Rogue TVTropes who steals for fun and profit yet has a heart of gold accompanied [...]

  • I can understand why some readers might rate Shadow Prowler lower it doesn t seem all that original, at first glance This book draws from a sub genre of fantasy that has been around the bend and them some horse and sword fantasy, as popularized by Tolkien with LOTR However, anyone accusing Pehov of a lack in originality is quite wrong, and to be honest, ignorant of some of the oldest traditions in storytelling Pehov takes his readers on a fun romp through Siala with the likes of the ever recalci [...]


  • Nothing wrong with this one at all I ve read a lot of thief viewpoint books in the last year I think they ve proliferated thanks to Scott Lynch may he soon release another title Unfortunately, writing a thief means that you ve got to somehow generate tension while creating a plausible job con and seem like you know what you re talking about when it comes to society s shady underbelly Except for the afore mentioned Lynch may his pen never dry , I haven t found anyone who can do all this convincin [...]


  • Shadow Prowler was a book I bought on random impulse and I must say that I was pleasantly surprised.What I liked It uses flashback segments 1st person limited wrapped into the plot as a mechanism for world building Allowing the main character and the readers knowledge of historic events in the world to grow through short stories within the story I loved this, in large part because I though all of these short stories were really good Creative alterations to ElvesElves exist in this story but they [...]


  • This book is like a spaggethi bolongese , you have eaten it a hundred times before, but it is filling and with excellent cooking skill it is a feast The book is true and pure fantasy vanilla It uses some slightly differen shades on standard tropes and archetypes, but do not actually add anything to the genre Instead it rests comfortably on on the standrards and the thing that saves it from blending into the faceless soup of fan writing is the prose Even if the translation certainly has killed th [...]


  • A lot of fun, this one If you just list the ingredients famous thief is recruited by the King to fetch a macguffin in exchange for not being made dead, sets out on a journey with a group of misfits, world races include elves, dwarves, goblins, orcs, gnomes, ogres it d look like the most generic thing you could imagine And at some level I suppose it is, but it s still charming and engaging, primarily because of Shadow Harold s somewhat snarky narration, and because a bit of strangeness creeps in [...]

  • I enjoyed Alexey Pehov s Shadow Prowler very much, but I would not recommend it to everyone Obviously, our own Stefan didn t like it see below , but I have some specific reasons why I did I ll do my best to explain so that you, dear reader, can decide whether or not Shadow Prowler is for you.First let me mention that the author, Alexey Pehov, is Russian and that Shadow Prowler has been beautifully translated by Andrew Bloomfield he also did the Nightwatch series I think the translation played a [...]


  • Shadow Prowler by Alexey PehovPehov may be well known in his native Russia but I had never heard of him until I read this book I think the quality of this book will insure that Pehov will be known far and wide as well as in Russia Shadow Harold, a master thief, finds himself enmeshed with the establishment to save the world as they know it Shadow Harold is an enjoyable rogue Harold is a master thief of exceptional skill and a healthy interest in avoiding heroics Pulled into quest to avoid the do [...]


  • Now throw in some Russian folk lore, elves of ash colored hair and pointy teeth, orcs being the first children of the earth, a wise ass goblin, and a most reluctant hero This book was a joy to listen to It was one of those random picks that I borrowed from the library based solely on the cover Shallowness did not lead me astray this time this book is excellent adventure Alexey Pehov gave us a nitty gritty tale filled with grey area characters full of mystery I especially liked Harold s sarcastic [...]


  • This is the worst book I have ever encountered in my life, and this is from a man who read the first 11 Sword of Truth Novels and the first two Runelord books There are no words to describe this thing.Let me put it this way I d rather listen to Robert STanek narrate Twilight while rabid wolves devour my testicles.



  • Shadow Harold is a professional thief His latest Commission thieving job has gotten him in a bit of trouble He hasn t exactly gotten caught, just noticed by the wrong people The kingdom of Siala is overrun with a mysterious yellow fog and demons that hunt in the shadows Everyone thinks the Namesless One is to blame a figure of darkness both evil and powerful who sends his minions forth to carry out terrible deeds The Order of Magicians bring Harold forward with a proposition journey to Hrad Spei [...]

  • The GoodShadow Prowler is an epic fantasy trilogy written in first person detailing a professional thief, Shadow Harold s reluctant acceptance and beginning trek to save his Country from an evil that promises to annihilate humans existence on earth whew That is the book in a nutshell Shawdow Prolwer is action packed from beginning to end It takes place in a time and period similar to The Lord of the Rings I got a real Middle Earth type of feeling It was northern as it was cold than it wasn t Th [...]


  • First, a warning this is book one of a trilogy, and is in no way a standalone work That said, this book is okay, but not great It does suffer from being translated I read this book in English, while it was written in Russian The translation surely removed some of the author s own writing style As for the plot the book s back cover calls it a truly unique novel I didn t see that Shadow Prowler appears to be another version of the Lord of the Rings, of the sort that s filled fantasy literature for [...]


  • OMG What a wild ride This was such an unexpected surprise, and I can not stop wishing that I had the next book Shadow Chaser so that I can continue along the Journey with Shadow Harold and the crew LOL I was not expecting to be grabbed from the moment I started, but I did and I am glad to be He is such an amazing character and the wit and sarcasm of Harold is smashing I love him The weaving of the story as he sets out on preparing for his Commission for King and Country Awesome At several points [...]


  • Let me preface this review with the fact that I listened to the audiobook I am fully aware that lousy readers can kill an otherwise great book just as a good reader can make a poor work tolerable or even good I believe in this case, there was an excellent reader that made this book into something very enjoyable for me I will not even try to begin to argue with those who did not enjoy the book Everyone has different tastes They didn t like it I did.I found an interesting parallel to The Lord of t [...]


  • De Russische auteur Alexey Pehov heeft in eigen land al een goede naam opgebouwd en een indrukwekkende reeks fantasyboeken en prijzen op zijn naam staan Nu is ook het buitenland het talent van deze schrijver aan het ontdekken Na een Engelse vertaling van zijn debuutroman uitgekomen als Shadow Prowler heeft Mynx een omzetting naar het Nederlands verzorgd De Vloek van de Schaduw is het eerste deel van de trilogie De Kronieken van Siala.Een epische queesteVijf eeuwen geleden werd de machtigste magi [...]


  • The publishers used some clever false advertising to sell this book It s described as being a grand epic but it s not The first half of the book takes place in one city one boring and predictable city Epics almost always have the main character setting out on a major quest fairly soon in the story This author couldn t get to the main plot This story should not be favorably compared to Tolkien as the dust jacket blurbs do It seems that he just took Tolkien s creatures Elves, orcs,etc and purposel [...]


  • I wish I could read this book in Russian, because then I might be able to figure out why someone bothered to translate it in to English It s a fairly cliched fantasy novel that seems to owe of it s DNA to the plots of roll playing games then anything else While going through the book, I developed a theory that in Russian it might have been a comedy There were points where I thought perhaps Harold the main character was being clever but it didn t really quite come through I thought this because [...]



  • c2002 I loved this book It had been recommended on various book blogging sites and I am glad that I ordered this one It had a great hero Shadow Harold and threads of humour which I found amusing The plot and world is well crafted but the author does not take ten thousand pages to do this I quite like the idea of the back story being told in the various dream sequences much better than building this into the present story Roll on the sequel Highly recommended My less than joyful expression fright [...]


  • This book is a very good example of russian epic fantasy bookI ve read the russian version and I can t make a review of english translation Keep in mind that it s the first part of trilogyIt s highly recommended to read the whole trilogyIn the third book there are unexpected twists of plot and the quite sad finale , ,


  • Actie die ook echt spannend is.Humor die ook echt grappig is.Personages waar je ook echt wat om geeft.Dit boek was zeker de moeite waard Kan niet wachten op het 2e deel om te zien hoe het verder gaat met mijn vrind Harold De reden dat ik het geen 5 sterren geef is omdat er soms wat geforceerd een hoofdstuk tussen zat om alles uit te leggen personages te introduceren Voelde niet natuurlijk aan.
