"Set in the coastal town of Myr, you have returned home after a long Summer in the mines of Durath Tor to find your hometown besieged by strange creatures. A dark presence has taken over the town and you are the only one who can rid the stronghold of Erid Buul, the mysterious new Lord and his ghastly cohorts."
"The graphics are simply excellent, with selectable fonts and backgrounds available. The quality of the design is such that it’s easy to forget you’re holding a mere iPhone in your hands and not a real-live book." - TouchMyApps
"The quality of the writing here is superb. Like the first game the author manages to keep your interest held, with the vocabulary rich and the writing witty and descriptive, holding an element of tension throughout." - Games Uncovered
"...the host of smaller parts really make The Siege of the Necromancer shine in comparison to the increasing number of adaptations of the old books." - Know Your Mobile

Too Difficult, Very Frustrating
I've replayed this book at least 50 times but can never solve it. I've even started the book with maxed out scores and still cannot beat the book. Very frustrating. The one true path must be obscurely hidden in the book -- I've tried everything, it seems. Playing this book became a waste of time.
Fun but Frustrating
Have to agree with the other review about the game being frustrating. Tried to complete on Classic - died more times than I can count. Even on Casual I haven't been able to beat it even though I've spent hours. Great writing, though! Will continue buying these interactive books.
Nice update. I can't wait for the next gamebook.
