Always loved this story.Hearing it told again really paints the world of Ravenloft in vivid detail
"A small glimpse of an expansive story setting."
I've read several of Christie Golden's newer works and her style has remained consistent for 25 years. The story itself is an interesting snapshot of a complex setting with a lot of interesting characters. It left me wanting to know more about the background of Ravenloft, Strahd, and the dozen other loose ended mysteries. It is good reading that ties into "the curse of strahd" 5e campaign book.
"An early look at Strahd"
Any fan of the Ravenloft setting should experience this book, it gives a unique insight into the personality of Count Strahd, especially in regards to how he reacts under pressure.
The character of Jander serves as a fasinating and likable protagonist, reacting either with grim humour or by rolling his eyes when confronted by the horrors of Barovia.
All around this story is a well written tale both from a grim as well as from a casually humorous standpoint, something not easily done.
Brilliant work to be sure.
"My Elven soul screams out against what I have beco"
The good parts many and fully entertaining. The bad parts are so hokey they are amazing!
