    This is a book I picked up to read as part of the SPFBO as it s one of the finalists, but personally I had a fair few issues with this book whilst reading it, and I couldn t really get into it in the way I had hoped to This follows a retired Pathfinder, Wendt, who lives out in the sticks on his farm hiding from his past and living his life He s approached by some guards from an old House who want to hire him to take the new House Kettiburg heir, Keilie, on her pilgrimage to Skara a place not man [...]

    Full review by BookNest here booknest component k2 spfboThere s been a lot of controversy about this book, and while opinions vary, I m disappointed to see that a couple of reviewers can t tell the difference between character development and personality Pell Wendt is a douchebag So what There are plenty of douchebags in the real world, and often than not they are involved in high stake situations I don t actually have to like support root for a character to enjoy the book Pilgrimage to Skara i [...]

    Plot Wendt is the main character, he used to be what s known as a Pathfinder, someone who s paid to help pilgrims make it to their shrines in the hopes they will be granted gifts He s been retired for some time and living on a pig farm minding his own business.He was approached by someone and made an offer to come out of retirement, he was absolutely unwilling and unbudging until he was told that the woman needing an escort was the daughter of his lost love Vyrma was an old lover of his and the [...]

    This one didn t work for me at all For me personally it is the worst of the SPFBO books I ve read this year The prose is decent, and the start was good So the author shows promise but sadly that is all the good I can say about itReview contains some bad language.The dialogue didn t work for me, and doesn t seem to make sense at times For example The main character tells his ward to either talk her fiancee out of something, or he ll get killed And when she speaks he tells her Quiet Another exampl [...]

    Overall rating 3 1 2 stars This was a title that was chosen by Booknest as their finalist in the SPFBO 2017 edition Plus it was Leona s review that really got me excited for the title and I bought a copy immediately The story begins with Pell Wednt, a retired pathfinder and current farmer with a laconic style of talk He s been approached to do one last pathfinding mission, as Wendt decides to decline He s stunned to know the petitioner is none than his former paramour and the pilgrim will be her [...]

    Actual rating 2.5On first sight, this book has little to attract potential readers One review Aesthetically challenged cover On the other hand, it was picked, rather unexpectedly, as final Booknest SPFBO2017 semi finalist I purchased a copy and started reading it hoping it would make my rather long train travel enjoyable It s a standalone book that focuses on retired pathfinder Pell Wendt who escorts a young girl to the shrine of power Normally, he wouldn t do it He s retired after all On the o [...]

    As severely underrated as it is, Pilgrimage to Skara is a highly engaging and entertaining flintlock fantasy tale This is the last book in my SPFBO batch, and to be honest I wasn t expecting much since I had two strong books which got high praise from the other folks After checking its profile, my expectations dipped further since it has only one rating, one review, and a cover that is far from attractive.However, this book grabbed me from page one and I ended up turning the pages at the airport [...]

    Trigger warnings ahoy.Read for the SPFBO, this is the second book I dove into once we had our shortlist of ten.Pell is travelling with Keilie who is the daughter of the woman who previously spurned him At times he is attracted to the warmth of her young body pressed against him and notes the mounting attraction , but ultimately has doomed himself for her mother that he will never get which is quite a problematic trope, if we re honest He also kisses her to unlock her magic as far as I could unde [...]

    On the road to adventure Pell Wendt is content as a poor farmer until representatives of his former lover convince him to return to his life as a pathfinder to guide her daughter to a shrine where she might gain magical powers The world is nearly a thousand years after an apocalypse and humanity consists of scattered patches of civilization among wild lands where monsters roam Some technology remains, including firearms, but civilization has reverted to something akin to a feudal society where t [...]

    Exploring a wilderness filled with ruins, strange creatures and constant danger is something I don t read enough of so I was excited when I started Pilgrimage to Skara but it just couldn t deliver The pulp feel and fast moving plot were the best aspects but the characters lacked nuance and the world lacked depth Having the main character be the mentor guide to a chosen one is an rarely utilized story choice but PtS shows how hard it can be to pull that off without leaving the main character almo [...]

    DNF 65%I was all gung ho to read this, as I really enjoyed the first 2 SFPBO finalist selections that I read And I did enjoy the political intrigue and the world building, and was looking forward to learning about of the characters we only got a few glimpses of However, I got totally squicked out with the relationship between the two main characters, and couldn t continue Why view spoiler Because 1 Wendt is 46 years old, and the girl is 18 years old 2 Wendt is not only old enough to be her fath [...]
