Demian's Thoughts:

This book's novella isn't bad, benefitting mostly from having a fairly interesting protagonist, but it ends a bit abruptly, and its plot seems a little strange in light of the subject of the gamebook section of the previous book. The gamebook here is decently designed, once again using codewords for continuity and lasting a fairly decent amount of time, though it isn't as challenging as its predecessor and it lacks a real sense of purpose since the assigned mission is rather vague. Not a bad end to the series, but certainly not as strong as the first four volumes.
