This is an above-average entry in the series, though it still failed to hold my attention very well. It suffers from the series' usual problems of redundancy in the introductory material and aimlessness in the narrative, but some of the strange and random events that take place during the course of the story are at least marginally creative and unusual -- an encounter with a demented sorcerer in a room full of plague victims is particularly memorable. The book is far from brilliant, but it has enough strangeness in it to be worth playing through at least a couple of times -- though not necessarily much more than that. For the most part, I like the tone of this series; too bad the writing and game design never quite manage to support it properly.
