Demian's Thoughts:

What's with Josepha Sherman and ending gamebook series? Just a few months after writing this conclusion, she also wrote the final entry in the original Endless Quest series. Considering that she isn't exactly a prolific author of interactive books, one might speculate that there's some sort of curse (or blessing, depending on how you feel about the series she terminated) attached to her. In any case, this isn't a bad way to end the series. The book has all of the usual flaws, but the story is definitely not the worst of the bunch and the interactive elements are numerous; this has the most endings of any book in the series, so there are lots of decision points offered in rapid succession. Of course, not all of them are meaningful -- there's some coin-flipping and random-number guessing -- but at least the reader is kept busy.
