Sötét Herceg came out in the era of its franchise Harcos Képzelet, where the series was at its weakest, and you had the least chance when buying a volume for it to be good.
Still, on paper, this is not a bad book. It was placed in a popular franchise's well-known location, the player took the role of a vampire, doing a Scooby-Doo investigation so to say, not your general hack-and-slash dungeon crawling. It also set up your role in this world quite nicely.
I can even give it some slack on the style, vocabulary, and a huge welcome to the potential setup.
Along with the fact that a lot is going on in the book (suspicious servants, ghosts, vampire rivalry, a gnome who wears a very disturbing Second Face Mask and so on), the adventure gives exciting hooks - especially at the start - which lead you a long way if you follow them.
Unfortunately none of the setups pay off, which is doubly problematic this being a hunt for clues on what is happening, instead of magic item hoarding. The ... ideal ... solution ends up being the shortest One True Path you'll likely ever see:
1) Leave the castle.
You literally win by not doing anything, and your best chance at survival is to not learn anything.
In a sense this is some post-modern masterpiece.
