This book tries to paint of picture of the strange and dark setting that is Ravenloft but it felt like it stumbled most of the way. I suppose it could be that it's trying hard to be more of a suspenseful murder-mystery kind of plot than the more typical horror-oriented style of Ravenloft stories. The plot twists are creative and surprising, and the finale was nicely done. But on the whole, it wasn't much more than for casual reading only.
This is not just another horror book. The setting is horribly attractive (my husband found it sick). Not that I'd like to live there but I certainly would visit it as an invisible tourist. The plot is somewhat simple yet very thrilling. Among all Ravenloft books I loved it the most. In fact most Ravenloft books are your usual horror easy reading and this one is outstanding.
(3.5 stars). One of the better Ravenloft novels. Also one of the more heartbreaking. There's some unfortunate '90s fantasy misogyny near the end, though it passes quickly. It's maybe the least fantasy of the series (so far), almost putting all of the eggs in the gothic horror / moral tale basket.

definitely a different style from the normal hack and slash ...this one had intrigue and mystery added to the horrors of ravenloft
