Demian's Thoughts:

Like many books in the series, this one contains several storylines, all using the same basic plot elements in totally different ways; in other words, it lacks internal consistency. This didn't bother me too much here, though, as each storyline provides a relatively engaging quest, and puzzles and riddles are used liberally to keep things enjoyable. It's just about as tacky and unoriginal as the rest of these books, but its swampy setting and slightly eccentric characters strike enough pleasant chords to make for fun, if intellectually undemanding, reading.
