"The mighty city of Falavia, the military backbone of Orlandes, is under attack from an army lead by a man claiming to be a God. How did this come to pass you ask yourself? You're sure it all started as some innocent adventure in search of treasure but somehow it turned into a nightmare. Also, why are people staring at you strangely? It’s not as if you look like you've recently been brought back from the dead or something. Oh yes, that's right. You remember now... "
"Arguably the best of the Gamebook Adventure series released so far by Tin Man Games, Revenant Rising combines polished gameplay mechanics with an original storyline, flinging you between the world of the living and the dead and back again. Stylish graphics only add to the atmosphere to be enjoyed both on the iPhone and the iPad." - Touch My Apps
"My favourite examples so far though are the iPad and iPhone-compatible Gamebook Adventures, a series of lovingly crafted and extremely well-written interactive fantasy novels. It's surprisingly engrossing stuff, the economically written narrative packing in masses of detail, while rattling out a pacy, involving story." - The Guardian
"The true gem, and the reason these are next iteration choose your own adventure books, is the dice component in the overall story." - 148Apps

What's New in Version 2.70
Adding french language support
This is One of the Better Books in the Series!
This game book is definitely one of the better ones in the series. The story is engaging and the action is broken up into three separate areas. There appears to be more than one ending to the book which makes the book replayable. However, I'm not interested in replaying the book. Others might be, though.
The book was well written, but there were a few minor grammatical errors and stuff like that. Nothing major. The artwork was also very well drawn.
This book is highly recommended!
One of my favorites
This book is probably my favorite in the series so far (I'm up to book 7). It has one of the better storylines, and oddly enough, I like the music loop in this one as well. It doesn't seem as repetitive as the others. You start to care about the characters in the story, and the multiple paths make this book replayable.
Good book, fun adventure
When you get on the bad side of the necromancer, betrayal and murder are just the beginning.
A solid adventure, a lot of fun, some wrong turns and some surprises. Couldn't ask for a lot more.
Except maybe some more healing. The combat system in these books is just brutal.
