Aussiesmurf's Thoughts:

As noted by Demian, there is significant continuity in this book with almost the entire series, as at one point you wander through a museum featuring all of your past missions. The attempts to tell a story of peace and harmony among the homicidal life-or-death riddles is certainly brave. The final revelation in the book sits pretty uncomfortably with the fact that you were nearly killed on numerous occasions.

Demian's Thoughts:

This book refers back to almost all of the previous books in the series; it's a direct sequel to Robot World and it draws characters from various other stories. Apart from this it is fairly unexceptional.

Dtar's Thoughts:

Agreed with Demian: Unexceptional. I also found it to be not as memorable as books 10 and 12. The illustrations seemed sloppier than #10, which was done by the same artist.
