Guillermo's Thoughts: This is a rare case of a recent gamebook written by a person who authored gamebooks during the golden era of the eighties. While Otfinoski's earlier involvement with the medium may lead one to expect this to be a high-quality book, in reality it turns out to be unexceptional both in terms of story and gameplay. Don't go out of your way to read this.
