Guillermo's Thoughts:

This is quite an enjoyable castlecrawl adventure. The nonplayer characters are colourful and have somewhat detailed personalities (unlike Master of Ravenloft in the AD&D Adventure Gamebook series, where most of them were generic D&D creatures). Unlike many Endless Quest entries, the book feels like a true D&D adventure in that the player character uses a variety of clerical spells and abilities. Moreover, there is enough variety to keep the reader interested in revisiting the story again and again. The only downside to the book is that successful endings are not too hard to come by. Nonetheless, it's an entertaining read.
