Publisher's Summary

Some of the parchment pages were the color of cream, thick and substantial, made to last many, many lifetimes. Other pages were thin and desiccated, positively yellow from age, and crackled alarmingly as Van Richten turned them over. There were no ornate illuminations, no fussy borders, only lines of plain text in hard black ink. The flowing handwriting was a bit difficult to follow at first; the writer's style of calligraphy had not been in common use for 300 years. No table of contents, but from the dates it looked to be some kind of history. He turned to the first page and read:
I, Strahd, Lord of Barovia, well aware certain events of my reign have been desperately misunderstood by those who are better at garbling history than recording it, hereby set down an exact record of those events, that the truth may at last be known....
He caught his breath. By all the good gods, a personal journal?

Protagonist Vampire High Fantasy

I read a lot, sorry I mean listen to a lot, of the Forgotten Realms novels, there are so many and a Ravenloft novel had to be listened to. Questions I had, who is Strahd? What is Ravenloft like? Where did it all start? The novel answers all these questions in great detail. The narration is really on point, and I loved that. The big issue I had was the story, which for a D&D fan was fine, however I think your average reader while find the story very similar to Bram Stokers Dracula. There are definite crossed lines in that respect. However understanding that Bram Stoker influenced the creators of Ravenloft must be noted.

I would recommend to any D&D and/or Ravenloft fans without hesitation, and any Vampire lover may find the book interesting because of the fantasy setting yet I can say as a horror novel there are far better novels. Suitable for Teens.
