This is a different kind of Beast Quest book. For the uninitiated, Beast Quest is a series of books where a young boy called Tom has to take on daring quests to save his world from various beasts conjured up, or enchanted, by the evil wizard Malvel. Instead of just a normal story that you read straight through, you get to make decisions whilst reading this book, and your decisions determine the outcome. In this book YOU have joined up with Tom and Elenna and get to help them to defeat the evil wizard Malvel. It is divided up into small sections/chapters of story, (usually just around a page long), and at the end of each of these sections you get a choice of two actions. Decide what you'd like to do and then turn to the indicated chapter number to continue on with the story.

There are ten possible endings in this book, so it is possible to read through it several times making different decisions to see what else could have happened. The book itself didn't take my six year old long to get through - not as long as one of the normal Beast Quest books - but he thoroughly enjoyed the story and "taking part" in the book. We'll be looking out for more books like this for him in the future.

A quick word of warning, though. If you're currently making your way through the Beast Quest series, as we are, then there is a "spoiler" right at the start of the book where Taladon makes an appearance, (he's still missing, presumed dead where we're up to in the series!). If this is a problem then you might want to finish the regular Beast Quest books first!

Thoroughly recommended for any children who are enjoying the Beast Quest books and might like something slightly different.

This book is awesome because you have to make your own decisions which makes you feel like you are really in the team and helping with the quest.

There are lots of paths, so there are lots of different ways to get to the end.......and sometimes the quest fails!!!!!!!

The story line was really good and my seven year old child enjoyed it, but he read it in about 10 minutes!

I bought 'Beast Quest Master your own destiny' for my 7 year old nephew who has Autism. He is a fan of Beast Quest, has all the books in all the series, so, I thought he would like this one. He loved it because it is Beast Quest but he got confused about the ending, where you have to choose your own. I forgot that he needs to read one ending, and not having to choose or imagine one. Otherwise, from an adult point of view, it is a fantastic book and I am sure that children without any difficulties will appreciate it because it leave them free to decide of a happy ending or a spooky one...
