"For those of us who grew up with the Fighting Fantasy books, this is almost like a homecoming. It’s a great modern equivalent to the books many of us loved as youngsters, with the same kind of attention to detail and thrilling fantastical touches that made these adventures so enjoyable. A splendidly written interactive fantasy story that will keep you hooked until the very end." - POCKETGAMER (8 out of 10 review)
"...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 pacey, involving story." - THE GUARDIAN
"Gamebook Adventures are fun to read – not just because the RPG mechanic draws you in and engages you in the story, but also because the stories are good fantasy fiction. The artwork is great and there is a great deal of replayability in the application, especially when you consider the hundreds of choices that can be made and the various difficulties." - WIRED.COM

Ratings and Reviews
Worth a try
Interesting and worth a shot for those who enjoy choose your adventure books
The game is written pretty well, and has a descent, sprawling story. The problem, though, is that for the most part, there is only one "right" answer for any choice you're presented. And, if you choose the wrong one, the game could just end with an abrupt and completely unfulfilling conclusion--i.e. you fail, game over. Combat is kind of pointless--just rolling dice over and over--and if you fail, that's it, the game ends: either restart or reload, which is okay in a video game, but in a text-based narrative, I don't like hitting a brick wall and having to start over. I just really wish in games like this, instead of choosing wrong and having the story end, the story changes in response to your choice, but continues in a logical way to eventually reach a fulfilling--though perhaps not ideal or happy--narrative ending.
A step up from an already high-level gamebook series!
Having owned all the previous installments of Tin Man Games previous gamebooks, this one is a great improvement on the pre-existing system. With the addition of phobia checks and partners to help you in battle, it really helps to add more diversity to the gameplay. The illustrations in the book are very high quality and the best by far and the story is on par with the better gamebooks in the series from judging after my first playthrough.
Overall, I am enjoying the new game mechanics and I would recommend to anyone already a fan of the series or even a newcomer who has read the description and seems mildly interested.
