User Summary: Your quest for the Lorestones leads you to the heart of the Danarg, an evil swamp filled with horrible monsters.
Demian's Thoughts:

After two disappointing adventures, this is a return to many of the things that make this series so much fun. The Darklord civil war that prevented momentous events from occurring for the past few adventures is at an end, and once again, you are racing against time and battling tremendous odds. The use of a companion character throughout most of the book is a nice change of pace (though more actual character development would have been nice), and the Danarg is a fun and atmospheric setting. The difficulty of the book is relatively high, but at least the toughest fight is near the beginning, making failure less frustrating than it might otherwise have been. This isn't really a classic, but it's an improvement over the previous Magnakai adventures, and its final cliffhanger promises more interesting things to come.

More reviews by Demian

Errata:There is an incorrect second choice in section 318; according to Project Aon, the choice should actually read "If you choose to continue your ride north to Tharro, turn to 280."
Special Thanks:Thanks to Ryan Lynch for most of the currently-used British cover images. Thanks to Brett Easterbrook for the previously-used Beaver reissue cover scan and to Marcus Pearse for the previously-used Red Fox cover scan.
