|User Summary:||You are the only person to escape capture when Nightshade's troops and the Shadow Rider attack your village. You must help Gregor the Good Knight rescue your fellow villagers.|
|Demian's Thoughts:||Well, there's a bit of a continuity error here since the Shadow Rider is a prominent part of the story, yet he can be killed in the previous book. Apart from that, this book is actually above average.... It feels a little broader in scope than the other books about the battle between Gregor and Nightshade, and it allows the reader to be considerably more active and useful.|
In addition to all of the other spin-offs that Endless Quest had, they also made a thinner, lighter companion series for younger readers. Coming out in the early 80's, this series is a short, simplified version of the normal series. It's about 78 pages and each page has an illustration and big print so the book is a fast read.
You play Meg, a young girl whose parents are kidnapped and taken to the Dungeon of Darkness. you join up with a party of adventurers, led by Gregor the good knight to rescue them. The choices are basic, as is the writing. It seems odd that you, a young girl, get to make decisions about where to go and how to fight, but I don't think the target reader would notice. It does feature a wide range of D&D monsters such as a Minotaur and Umber Hulk. Very little killing is involved as you often defeat and tie up the monsters.
The artwork looks like it was sketched with a pencil. Not bad, just not a high standard. The most disturbing thing is a very scary two headed troll on the cover. It looks far too frightening for the target readers.
