Format: Mass Market Paperback
In yet another example of the misinterpreted, confused history of Sir Tristen Hiregaard, we have TEW, Christie Golden's third (and worst) RL novel. However, that is not to say it is bad. Quite the opposite, it is well done and a rousing tale.
Let me clarify my above statement by saying Sir Tristen Hiregaard (not Tristan, as it is in this book) is known for having the worst continuity of any RL character, having no less than four histories, this being the third such. To help, however, the "true" one can be found in Domains of Dread, the hardcover sourcebook for the Ravenloft role-playing game.
This book, however, take all of the previous histories (which coincided fairly well) and tossed it out the window, giving us a strange tale that is not only completely opposite to Tristen/Malken's character, but completely opposite to the very history of Nova Vaasa itself.
But, I am speaking as a fan of the game world. As a fan of the novel series, I still have to say it is an excellent read (though not as good as Vampire of the Mists or Dance of the Dead, Golden's other contributions), even if it is non-canon.

Recently I have read a lot of "happy" endings. Where the main character saves the maiden, blah blah blah. I have read almost all of Christie Golden's work and find her a superb author. She seems to understand that real life is not what some write. Mistakes are made, and family memebers *DO* die from time to time. When you finish one of her books, any of them, you feel sad for the main character and all those who lost their lives, but at least you don't feel like they should live happily-ever-after. The Enemy Within was certainly her classic style, right down to the win/lose ending. It might lag a touch in certain areas, but it more than makes up for it in the climax and resolution

However, there's no idealistic fool scientist/alchemist trying to purge his "evil". Rather it uses the plot device of a character that's both the champion of good and evil and the same to explore that. Nice adventure tale and won't spoil the ending but its Ravenloft we are talking about!

In this day, H8ters G0tt4 H8, so these books get mocked, etc. Well I loved them. I still think about this particular volume now and again, a decade later at least.

Most of these books I bought in an armload from used bookstores. I've actually re-purchased a few as they appear on Kindle.

Note to Wizards, please keep the price sub-dead tree and perhaps have/use some artists for new artwork, including some interior stuff:-) If you will do this I'll re-purchase much of my collection that buying from a used book store you never profited, just no Cntrl-C/Cntrl-V work, have someone proofread the PDF (the scanning software/conversion software makes lots of errors) and some artwork.

But I love Ravenloft, would consider getting "New" ones too, might even submit my own ideas someday.
