This full-length adventure provides an extremely engaging and entertaining opportunity for players to investigate and a hilarious parody of a Harry Potter-style wizard academy that harbors a dark and dangerous secret beyond the undead that now infest its halls. In addition, there is the opportunity to explore the area surrounding the keep comprised of a small town harboring a surprising twist related to the keep's dark secret. The author acheives a nice balance of tone between campy horror and harrowing encounters, and the adventure presents a real challenge to adventurers that will keep them on their toes. There are a few gruesome scenes that can be easily modified (and the author makes suggestions) to make this a kid-friendly adventure. The writing is excellent, the formatting and editing are top-notch, the NPCs are quirky, and main boss villian is interesting and challenging. Along the way, the players will find interesting traps, intriguing magical items, unique monsters, and a final harrowing and increasingly dangerous escape. This is absolutely a 5-star adventure!

A Final Note: I would take a moment to address a criticism stated in another review: I certainly respect the principle that individuals are entitled to have their opinions, but I very much disagree with the accusation that a minor encounter in the adventure has a homophobic undertone. There is one very minor scene where the party may discover the body of a wizard apprentice who has committed suicide and murder (the author gives the option of a much less gruesome depiction of events, or it can be modified as the DM sees fit). At the scene, the party may find a somewhat tongue-in-cheek suicide note suggesting the apprentice was an artistically inclined individual who became disenchanted with the pursuit of the dark necromantic arts and horrified at the nightmarish situation to which his studies have lead him. However, his primary motivation for suicide is the same as the one other suicide that may be encountered in the adventure---i.e. the wizard academy was overrun by undead monsters who began attacking/eating the trapped students, and the survivors had the grim choice to keep fighting until their inevitable deaths and reanimation as undead horrors or to kill themselves to avoid this terrible fate. There is absolutely no mention or implication of sexual orientation, nor is there any suggestion someone should harm themselves simply because they are different. Furthermore, as the author states at the beginning, the more grim scenes can easily be modified, either according to the DM's preference or following the author's suggestions, without any impact on the adventure play. Finally, I would note that I am gay, so I am certainly sensitive to LGBTQ issues.
