I purchased this book yesterday, and it was a good surprise. I expected it to be good, but did not expect it to be great. This book is like Haunts, but a lot darker, more polished, with story opportunities. Wraith is a hard game to storytell, and this book really gave me ideas for stories related to the Skinlands. The text was great, editing was ok (there were a few typos, but nothing that compromised the books quality), the art was good, formatting was ok. I will definitely keep tabs on the author.

There are five scenarios in the book: Hotel Mercurial was ok, reminded me a little of the hotel from the Shining, with the creep factor a little higher in. Blackmail, twisted minds, dirty deeds, this is a Haunt, and where whatever kind of sick deeds could have happened. Family Secrets was a sick, sick scenario, that just delivers what I always thought wraith was about. A close, personal story with a whole lot of tragedy. This was my favorite, perfect for a story with few players. Cruelest Cuts is a great mystery story, ripe with potential to end in something like Shutter Island, Identity, or one of those movies with a great ending. This one was also very good. An Artist's Muse in my least favorite scenario. Although it delivers great history, the types of stories I could envision just weren't my cup of tea. However, there was something novel here - someone who, in life, was evil, and did not go to Oblivion. It was an interesting character. The Blue Man was good, but not what I look for in a Wraith story. I was on the lookout for things related to the living, and this story does not deliver the proximity I look for in a Wraith story. I liked, however, the maddening aspects of the story. Gave me a lot of good ideas.

Good work!

Thank you so much for the review; I really appreciate you taking the time to do so. I tried to create a mix of scenarios to appeal to different players and play styles, and it seems you enjoyed most of those presented. I'm working on some more Wraith content, and hopefully will be releasing it before the end of the year. I'll also look into the typos to ensure the quality of this title is raised. If you do use any of the content in your own games, let me know - I'd love to hear about it!
