It'excellent! You'll like it! What are you waiting for?
on 6 March 2002
After finishing I, Strahd:The Memoires of a Vampire and Vampire of the Mists, I chose Heart of Midnight to be the third in my Ravenloft collection. Well, it was a good decision!
Robert King summons all the monsters and freaks of Ravenloft to build up an excellent story with haunted memories and an evil curse. The storyline has many unexpected events, such as the death of
Gustav or the relation between Casimir and Lukas.
This IS really a world of darkness, because all the people, who are good in part, become dead or corrupted.
King is a master of human mind: in a world of decay only the creatures can survive, who don't conceal their evil and let it guide them, even to commit some murder...
Ah, yes! The epilogue is the best I've ever read, it is a real accurate one. I don't tell more about it...
Why I gave four stars? Honestly the episodes in the Kartakan Inn were not the best! Too fussy, too
slow, too monochrome! But the book is great, so read it!
