Shadeheart's Thoughts:

[Rating: 0/10]
[Recommended? NO]

This book largely follow in the footsteps of its predecessor, "Treachery in Drakenwood", and that isn't necessarily a good thing - the enormously expansive openness of the other "Unicorn Fatemaster" title is here just the same, as are the problems that plagued said book. With an enormous mapping layout that doesn't entirely align (two major errors at least), rough and dull writing that is especially uninvolving, too much freedom to feel enough of a sense of control or persuasion in the setting, and an even less appealing coupling of illustrations with the weak story, again, the adventure feels like far more work than it's worth. The lack of playability the first time around - let alone any replayability - on top of the unreasonable difficulty level leave me here strongly suggesting you pass on this book and the series in general. ^^

(Mysteriously disappears into the shadows.)
