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 three hundred 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?

The Creation of the Realm

Where book 1 was largely derivative setup, book 2 is much more fun! Pitting Strahd against the necromancer lich Azalin from Forgotten Realms, this book examines not only some great characterization as these two powerhouses play off each other, it also sees the formation of the Demi-Planes of Dread that comprise the Ravenloft campaign setting. For those looking for a quick read through a fantasy / horror realm, this one is definitely worth the look. I still recommend getting book 1 just to build the foundation if nothing else, but I don't know that it's entirely necessary. This one's friendly to new readers.

- Troy "Say something about yourself!"

A great continuation to the first book.

What started off as a robotic narration quickly turned into goosebump inducing creepy narration, and aside from the rather abrupt ending this book is a worthy continuation of the first one. Gothic horror with a legendary dark villain as the main character. Can not recommend enough.
