Fan Favorites Count Varian and Radovan Return for a Tale Set Against the Backdrop of the Wrath of the Righteous Adventure Path for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game

REDMOND, WA (July 24, 2013): Paizo Publishing, LLC announces today the release of King of Chaos, the latest novel from Pathfinder Tales by best-selling author Dave Gross. King of Chaos is out now and available as a mass-market paperback everywhere, and PDF on, as well as ePub via Apple's iBookstore, MSRP $9.99

After a century of imprisonment, demons have broken free of the wardstones surrounding the Worldwound. As fiends flood south into civilized lands, Count Varian Jeggare and his hellspawn bodyguard Radovan must search through the ruins of a fallen nation for the blasphemous text that opened the gate to the Abyss in the first place—and which might hold the key to closing it. In order to succeed, the heroes will need to join forces with pious crusaders, barbaric local warriors, and even one of the legendary god callers. It's a race against time as the companions fight their way across a broken land, facing off against fiends, monsters, and a vampire intent on becoming the god of blood.

"Dave Gross has done it again! Chock full of action, humor, and world-ending monstrosities, King of Chaos will be sure to appeal to demon-hunters everywhere," says James L. Sutter, Paizo Publishing's Fiction Editor/Senior Editor.

King of Chaos is sanctioned for use in Pathfinder Society Organized Play. Its Chronicle Sheet is available as a free download.
