    "This is well written and very well received. This is not a perfect result as it is the second book in a series. The result should be the first one in the series to get the ball rolling."

    "The books in this series are really cool. I like the fantasy overlay to a choose your own adventure book. The best part is that you can choose your character class and you dont need to be the same character with each time through. making extra characters extends the life of this book. i like the idea of a roleplaying book"

    "A really cool concept that I wish was more popular. Having the option of a single player RPG gamebook is just fantastic, even though it's rather old - it came out in 1989 but has a long established history. I believe this is the 38th book in this series."

    "A classic Fighting Fantasy book! Although the series is getting a little long in the tooth these days, FF books were a favorite of mine when I was a kid, and I still like them today. This is one of the later ones, but still holds up as a classic. If you like "choose your own adventure" type books, try it today!"
