Overview

Once he has aspired to become a paladin.

That was before the sun itself refused to shine upon him. Now his holy powers are failing him, his title has been give to another knight, and grim despair mires his every step. If he is to be redeemed, Alexi Shadowborn must discover the source of the curse that blackens his spirit.

The answer lies nearly two decades in the past, when a woman he barely remembers fell at the hands of a diabolical assassin. Somehow the darkness that struck her down has left him unclean in the eyes of the god he desires to serve. But how has her burden become his?

Shadowborn follows Alexi as he travels from the alabaster castles of the Great Kingdom to the blackest regions of Ravenloft in a macabre tale of darkness, despair, and redemption.

I couldn't put this book down! The prologue was exciting and terrifying relating Ebonbane's entrance into the dark realm. He proved to be a powerful enemy with unexpected roots into Shadowborn's past. The book is fast paced with more action and battle scenes than is typical for Ravenloft novels. The plot took many twists and turns, and I was unable to guess the ending until it actually happened. The atmosphere was thoroughly creepy causing the reader to feel as though they were actually there. The vast army of ghouls proved to be a formidable enemy causing many terrifying moments. The ending chapters were exciting, however, I was a little confused by the ending and still am not exactly sure of what happened which is the only fault I feel that the book had. All and all, it was an excellent read and is certainly one of the best Ravenlofts.
