Format: Paperback
'Fangs of Fury' is an odd but amusing addition to the Fighting Fantasy range of books. I found that its quirky atmosphere made it quite enjoyable. This came as a surprise considering that I read 'Chasms of Malice', a previous FF book by the same author, which I found highly disappointing. There are certainly some overlaps between these two books. Both involve you starting as some lowly character in a castle who ends up being dropped through a hole after being selected for a mission to save the castle/city from threat. There are many shared elements between these books but where 'Chasms of Malice' fails to deliver in almost every instance, 'Fangs of Fury' aptly utilises the ideas of the author. The code/language system that is introduced is far more interactive and integrated into the adventure. It also uses a system that you might find you subconsciously read without recourse to looking up the symbols. It isn't as developed as the similar texts to be encountered in 'Creature of Havoc' but the author has thoughfully applied to himself it unlike that which he used in 'Chasms of Malice'. The author's love for mazes is still present but this time they are not annoying additions to the reader and pointless to the storyline. They have a purpose and their construction is well thought out meaning you are able to gain a sense of how to traverse them. The biggest difference with 'Chasms of Malice' though is that the text is much better written.

This adventure has an appealing sense of surrealism. You might find yourself the toy of a giant or having to rescue a school girl from a teacher threatening to cane her. The writing is often a bit tongue in cheek. This makes for a quirky, intriguing read.

But where this book really stands out from others in the series is in its use of its artwork.

The book starts off nearly right away, You are deep a citadel which is under siege by Ostragoth the grims forces. You have just volunteered for a mission which you think might just be a lookout, but as soon as the two words-brave warrior- are mentioned you know you are in for something more serious. you are set a mission to rekindle the flame of the fangs of fury (the flame guardig the citadel). to do this you must venture deep inside the fangs of fury which is also the name of the volcano which provides the flame.
During this quest you read through hundreds of hugely descriptive paragraphs and very exciting ones at that. one day during my class interval i was left in so much suspense from reading the book that me and my friend rushe back into the class and started reading again.
Anyone who is interested in the fighting fantasy series is bound to love this true classic.
ou tof ten this book truly deserves a full blown no exageration 10 out of 10.
