2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I was hoping for, 28 Nov 2008
This review is from: Heaven's Bones (Ravenloft: the Covenant) (Mass Market Paperback)
I agree with many of the comments reviewer Biss has already made.

A curious piece this one. As the first new Ravenloft novel in 9 years I was eagerly awaiting this release. However the unfortunate reality was that the Ravenloft core references were few and far between. Part of book is set in Kartakass and Harkon Lucas briefly get a mention, along with a number of Vistani references but that is about it.

The Ravenloft setting has most notably changed by incorporating Victorian England as a place to which the mists of Ravenloft connect and draw their prey. This appears to be the same connection as shared by other TSR settings as opposed to that outlined in the Masque of the Red Death campaign setting.

Even forgetting the tenuous Ravenloft connections, this book suffered from having too many villains, a convoluted time-line and an overly bizarre plot.

I very much hope for an improvement on subsequent Ravenloft releases, hopefully returning to some of the core gothic horror concepts that originally shaped the series.
