A bit of a period piece -- somewhat dated, in other words, which is only to be expected. I especially liked the updated (to the 1980s) continuation of the theme from At the Mountains of Madness, where Lovecraft's Antarctic explorers returned with Elder technologies to weaponize in western warfare.
A young man who has been educated at home, more bookish than swordsman, sets off on a journey which will provide him some adventure as a change of pace. Open as he is to whatever circumstance presents, be it a duel, rescue of a fair lady, escape from imprisonment in a sinister chateau, he's kept well occupied.
