Lord of the Necropolis Reviews
Lord of the Necropolis is the second book of the two part story, tragedy, of Lord Azalin of Darkon. I would highly suggest, before reading this one, you read King of the Dead first. Lord of the Necropolis takes place some years after the first book. Lord Azalin is trapped in Ravenloft and is seeking a way out. A Vistiani seer may hold the secret to parting the mists. Yet all is not what it seems. This tale follows Azalin and his surrogates Oldar and Balitor as they try to unravel the mystery behind this mysterious prophecy. It delves into the background of the dark powers that created Ravenloft (all of it-not just Darkon, but Barovia and others as well). It shows how Strahd, vampire Lord of Barovia, was the first to be taken and how the other Darklords were slowly taken as well.I will not spoil the plot with any more. Well written and fast paced, this is one of the better Ravenloft stories by far. I rank Lord Azalin as my second favorite Dark Lord after Count Strahd. It was interesting to see the reasoning behind the events that caused Azalin to begin his path down the road to becoming a Lich King. It does come full circle and finishes the story from King of the Dead. If you enjoyed that tale-then you must read this one. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is the slightly odd ending. But I leave it to you, dear reader, to make your own judgement. Highly recommended to fans of gothic horror tales.
This is a book about a disembodied necromancer who lives inside a skeleton. He is so powerful he can project his mind far across the land to see what's going on. he lives in a magical tower full of secrets and mysteries. far away there is an uppity vampire lord who needs to learn his place. and the whole realm is surrounded in thick fog that no one can traverse. So everyone's trapped in this evil grey realm, and noone wants to be there. Very cool stuff to imagine about as a kid, I loved this.
Full review here: http://jamesgenrebooks.blogspot.com/2...It's a readable book. Azalin is a tragic character in many ways. But it made me long for what White Wolf managed to do long after the heyday of D&D novels... make a book that captures both the spirit and the sense of adventure of the game itself.
A boring, dull book with little or none storyline.
