This is a combination of the previous releases of Ravenloft Monstrous Compendiums 1 and 2, both of which are made more accessible in a bound book rather than the original loose leaf as I have them. The first compendium contains many monsters native to the demiplane of dread, most of which are worth the purchase of this book, though a few bad apples (like the Doppleganger Plant) appeared. Thankfully, these are few.
The second compendium was a collection of 20 ready to play characters with fully detailed backgrounds and advice on their use. Though some are worth it and are generally unique, many are just standard creatures of their race with a story added. The format of the characters is also poor, given a format equal to that of a standard monstrous compendium creature rather than todays NPC's we are used to seeing. STill, this section is good, with minor flaws, even with many unoriginal characters within it.
Sadly, this book is out of print, as is the entire Ravenloft line, though with the new Ravenloft from White Wolf in the works, maybe a new version of this book will follow. If you want to get this book, I recommend seeking out a second hand edition or searching in bookfinders, as it is worth almost, but not quite, its weight in gold.

The Monsterous Compendium Ravenloft Appendices I and II are awesome if you run a Ravenloft campaign. Half the times I run my Ravenloft campaign I cant think of any new monsters to throw at the PC's but definately now that I have these books they are a great help =) especially to my stress level.
