Now here is a great book. Maybe too great. You will be able to find out exactly how to introduce a monster character into any existing campaign, or even run an all monster one. they offer many new feats to compliment the monster characters, along with many new weapons. But wait, there's more, not only can your players become a Medusa or an Incubis, why not let them play a Solar? Because at some point they go too far. The level adjustments are somewhat balanced, however some DM's may want to seroiusly look over what any character may come up with. After playing several sessions with an all monster campaign, I have found that the monster characters presented in this book are best used sparringly, at best. All-in all it is one of the best supplements out this year.Well done.
