5.0 out of 5 stars Choose-your-own-adventure Genius, 15 Jan 2004

This review is from: War Torn Kingdom (Fabled Lands) (Paperback)
Thie series is exceptional. If you ever played fighting fantasy books, you should get these without delay. They are what you wanted but never quite got!
As described, these are the only gamebooks where you can retrace your steps, buy a house to keep your treasures in, rub shoulders with kings or beggars, change career to become I sea captain, a warrior, a magician... the options are endless. Each book covers a new region. So once you've become famous (or infamous!) in one land, you can pack up and explore a whole new country. Each area is full of Morris's whimsical, inventive scenes and characters (as anyone who loves the classic role-playing game Dragon Warriors will vouch for!). You will gain enemies and friends who will crop up from one book to the next. And as you play, you learn a little about yourself, too, because your breadth of choices is so rich you soon find yourself setting your own goals in the world. If that isn't enough, each is brimming with multiple threads of adventure, different paths which take you from comedy encounters to truly chilling trials.
This series re-invents gamebooks and shows the rest up as childsplay. I've found the only game-book series I'll ever need!
