Publisher's Summary

On the fabled world of Krynn, Lord Soth finally learns that there is a price to pay for his long history of evil deeds, a price even an undead warrior might find horrifying. Dark powers transport Soth to Barovia, and there the death knight must face the dread minions of Count Strahn Von Zarovich, the vampire lord of the nightmare land. But with only a captive Vistani woman and an untrustworthy ghost for allies, Lord Soth soon discovers that he may have to join forces with the powerful vampire if he is ever to escape the realm of terror. Knight of the Black Rose is the second in an open-ended series of Gothic horror tales dealing with the masters and monsters of the Ravenloft dark fantasy setting.

An horrible boring sleeping pill

I was expecting an epic tale, but the character Lord Soth is probably one of the most boring characters I've ever heard of. I might've been the narrator but I got the image of a fist clenched, scorning, dull and constantly angry bastard when I finished this audiobook. In the book we follow Lord Soth's journey to get back to his homeland Krynn from Ravenloft. It begins by him slaughtering a village of people for being lied to. The only interesting character is of course Lord Strahd, because Strahd is a good character - he has some virtues at least - while Soth seems to lack any and all manner of virtues and makes his character entirely one sided.

He doesn't develop at all during the story and the side characters are more or less one dimensional as well. A cowardly Vistani, an eager dwarf and the rest of the characters being personality ridden undead makes for a poor and starved cast. Especially if you concern that Soth is unremarkable in of himself.

No, don't even think about trying this horrible piece of work.
