This review is from: Death of a Darklord (Ravenloft Novel: Ravenloft Covenant) (Paperback)
As a Laurell K. Hamilton fan, I had expectations, which were not met in any way. This is in no way up to the same standards as Anita Blake or Merry Gentry novels (which, admittedly, is understandable if this is an early work). I do have to admit I know nothing about the Ravencroft series, but after reading this I'm not likely to read any others. Even if you ignore the author's name, I still think the story is disappointing. The characters and descriptions are brilliant, and show great promise as they story builds up to an assumed great adventure - but then you realise you're halfway through the book and nothing's happened. I also didn't enjoy the end part of the book which (without spoiling the ending) left me utterly depressed. Nothing had been achieved by the end of the book, and I felt that it had all been utterly pointless and that I'd wasted my time reading it.
