some of the best dark fantasy out there

Oftentimes, RPG franchise books are just a cash grab to lure unsuspecting nerds toward the insulting of their intelligence. However, this book, along with other selections from the Ravenloft line, do truly realize the best possibilities that the merging of horror and fantasy has to offer. It's strange, picturesque and deeply unsettling. It's as gothic as anything by Poe and as heroic as anything by Robert E Howard. That is no mean feat of writing. It comes from too far out of left field to be anything you'd ever expect. I guarantee you've never read anything quite like this. Specter of the Black Rose and Lord of the Necropolis are the finest dark fantasy stories outside of the great originators, Lovecraft and Clark Ashton Smith. Their origins as RPG novels will leave them forever underestimated.

IF DONALD TRUMP WAS LORD SOTH

I read this book when I was a kid now I find the audio version 5x better because it is so amusing to imagine Donald Trump playing him. he kind of sounds like him.

Danny Campbell's voiceover was atrocious.

Danny Campbell is simply talentless for this kind of work. several grammatical errors and very limited voice range.

Was this narrated by George Lopez?

I absolutely can’t believe the choice of narrator for this book. It honestly sounds like George Lopez or Cheech reading a dark fantasy!

Lack of Soth

Decent but very drawn out. More South please. Maybe one day...one day until then we all suffer the mists.

Story of a world not Soth

Most of this story was written about the world which Soth found himself in, he was more of a side character verses the main character as any book that holds him as the title should be. The over all story was good, and began to come together more towards the end. It is a good Fantasy book, but not if you are searching for a story of Soth himself as I was.

Fantastic

There are certain scenes within that make you pause, mouth open, and then they play out like a movie and you think "my god, if I could only emulate this in my next dnd campaign, Lord Soth will never be forgotten" and I will never forget the ending of this book. Amazing.
