If you were fascinated by Lord Soth in the Dragonlance books and are interested in his transfer to the Ravenloft setting and further fate therein, thi..Show More »s book does the trick. The story is not surprising or impressively artful, but experiencing Soth's point of view lends extra interest and it is mostly well-paced and engaging.
Danny Campbell has a very long list of audio-book credits to his name. I am forced to guess from this that perhaps a poor producer or director pushed him in unfortunate directions for this reading. The voice he gives to the principle character, Lord Soth, is excellent, and other characters are passable, and his overall timbre is pleasing.
However, Mr. Campbell mispronounces such an array of words that his reading rattles and jangles. The possessive of the name Soth, Mr. Campbell, "Soth's" would be pronounced Soths, just like a plural, not "Soth-ez" Sharp teeth intended for tearing meat are in-size-ors, not in-scissors. Those missteps alone could easily be ignored, but the list goes on and on which made it difficult to enjoy the book.
I am usually very devoted to completing a series once begun, but I am unsure if I will purchase audio versions of the further novels concerning Lord Soth with Mr. Campbell as the reader.

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.
