Fighting fantasy gamers will not be disappointed by this offering from Ian Livingstone. It is a welcome reissue of a book that has been out of publication for too long. Agglax the Shadow Demon is creating an army of warriors to conquer Allansia.
Only a brave hero can save the day – as long as all the challenges can be successfully overcome. The problem is that each answer can lead you in many different directions. All too frequently, it will result in frustration as you have to go back to the beginning and start again!
This is a good way of getting boys to read and should be encouraged. Why not introduce lots of new books of this type – they are well needed.
