5.0 out of 5 stars A great adventure by the writers of THE WAY OF THE TIGER series., 26 July 2011
This review is from: Talisman of Death (Fighting Fantasy) (Paperback)
Written by Mark Smith and Jamie Thomson in 1984, TALISMAN OF DEATH is set in the world of Orb, the setting of their own WAY OF THE TIGER gamebooks.

Drawn from Earth to Orb by the Gods, you are entrusted with the TALISMAN OF DEATH, a powerful artefact required by the Fleshless King and his undead army to slay all true life on Orb and thus rule supreme. You are charged with finding a portal back to your own world and taking the Talisman back with you, so it will be out of the Fleshless King's reach forever. The Undead, Dark Elves, Orcs and the evil priestess Hawkana are also after the Talisman, so a lot of the book involves keeping the Talisman safe and avoiding or fighting parties interested in taking it from you.

This is a first rate gamebook, particularly for fans of the authors' other work. Bob Harvey provides some great illustrations, and various characters from THE WAY OF THE TIGER series make it into this gamebook, which will be a pleasure for fans. THE TALISMAN OF DEATH is very much a Fighting Fantasy gamebook though, using the standard Fighting Fantasy rules and having 400 paragraphs. It is also one of the best books in the entire series, and as such comes highly recommended.
