Liar's Blade, a Pathfinder Tales novel by Tim Pratt, was released in February 2013. An audiobook version narrated by William Dufris was released in October 2015.

Bastard and SwordWith strength, wit, rakish charm, and a talking sword named Hrym, Rodrick has all the makings of a classic hero—except for the conscience. Instead, he and Hrym live a high life as scoundrels, pulling cons and parting the weak from their gold. When a mysterious woman invites them along on a quest into the frozen north in pursuit of a legendary artifact, it seems like a prime opportunity to make some easy coin—especially if there's a chance for a double-cross. Along with a hooded priest and a half-elven tracker, the team sets forth into a land of monsters, bandits, and ancient magic. As the miles wear on, however, Rodrick's companions begin acting steadily stranger, leading both man and sword to wonder what exactly they've gotten themselves into...
