Demian's Thoughts:

I got through this book somewhat faster than the first one. This was probably due to luck, but a familiarity with the backwards logic of the series does help here; as in the previous book, victory requires some seemingly bad moves. Overall, I found this book more satisfying than the previous one; the events don't seem quite so random, and the continuity is better.

My High Score - 1050 (no points counted more than once)

Guillermo's Thoughts:

(Review based on the Spanish translation.)

This book shares its basic format with the previous one, also including an insane level of difficulty. Even though it is a sequel to the The Badlands of Hark, the text suggests that your character is not the same as in the previous book. The region of the planet that you get to explore is also different, being a little more civilized (though there are still many dangerous alien creatures to be found, beware!).

While the previous book was very good, I found this one to be even better. The author cared to give this adventure a space opera tone which keeps things interesting, and the adventures are more creatively designed than those in The Badlands of Hark. If you liked Badlands, you will love this one. Two thumbs up!
