Not the greatest of the D&D supplements, this book does have a few good ideas in it, but the mechanics of terror and taint leave something to be desired - I prefer role-playing fear (and have players strong enough to do so) - and taint seemed like something that needed to be campaign-specific to work; if it was dropped into a setting already in play, it would seem sudden and strange. I did like the new classes, however - especially the Archivist!
