4.0 out of 5 stars A gamebook with a proper storyline! 16 Mar 2014
By Ale
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This gamebook is set in the region near Kallamehr and is therefore part of the so called "Kallamehr cycle" or "Riddling Reaver's cycle", that comprises The Dreaming Sands (an article on The Warlock magazine #13), The Riddling Reaver, Slaves of the Abyss and Magehunter, all of the same author.
The themes and the execution are quite novel, making this gamebook quite a unique experience within Fighting Fantasy series. There is a proper plot to discover, with an enigmatic enemy attacking at the same time from outside and from within Kallamehr. The hero won't need just to be strong at fighting and lucky at picking his ways, but will need, above all, to use his brain quite a lot, as it's crucial to understand what's the plot behind and who are the traitors.
If you act without thinking,, this gamebook will never be solved!

4.0 out of 5 stars Frustrating but rewarding 31 Oct 2012
By Alaran
This is one of the more difficult Fighting Fantasy books. Perhaps this is because it has one of the most confusing plots. Often you don't know who your enemy is or who your allies are. This also makes the book very intriguing and encourages the reader to be drawn into the storyline. There is plenty of going back and forth to places you have already been and re-visits to those you have met before. Often the options you are given that you need to follow seem utterly pointless and you will encounter events that just leave you puzzled. Many will make some sense later but this is a book where you have to pay a lot of attention to what mostly seems non-sensical. You would be incredibly fortunate to perform the right actions at the right time but, as the introduction states, this is what you must do with very little indications.

As confusing as the storyline seems though it does eventually make sense and the correct ending (there are several where you can survive) is one of the most original and best. This should not be the first FF book you read as it could be off-putting to unfamiliar readers. However, it is a satisfying adventure if you persist in completing it, but be prepared for frustration.
