Demian's Thoughts:

The novella here is a decent sequel to the previous book's storyline, making good use of continuity and featuring the same high-quality level of writing. Its story doesn't have quite the epic feel of the last book's (no threats to the whole world this time), but the story still works on its smaller scale. The gamebook is a definite improvement over its predecessor, having a greater sense of purpose and being more directly related to the story in the novella. It's not perfect, however, since it's still rather short and feels a bit plotless in comparison to the novella. Nonetheless, the entire book is a good read on a whole.
