Heart of Midnight was neither the best Ravenloft novel nor it was the worst either (that space is reserved for Dance of the ¿Dumb¿ Dead). The book took well over a hundred pages to get started and the writing style was a bit tedious. Instead of using pronouns, such as he, the author continuously repeated the characters names giving the novel a choppy, unfinished feel. The main character didn¿t attract my sympathy due to his continual grumbling about his predicament and his ambivalent attitude toward remedying it. Consequentially, he began to grate on my nerves. Luckily Harkon Lukas, the villain, did much to redeem the book. He proved to be an entertaining and chilling nemesis. The ending was very surprising and fast paced, fraught with many scenes of horror and betrayal almost redeeming the humdrum beginning. All in all, it was a pretty good novel, however, nothing in it was particularly memorable.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
