|LC Cataloging in Publication Summary:||As Lifin, a young elf, the reader makes decisions controlling his search through the five Forbidden Towers for the herb that will cure his people of the elven plague.|
For such a short book, this one does an excellent job of giving the reader a sense of exploration. This thorough development of the Forbidden Towers is made possible by the inclusion of only one victorious ending and lots of linking between towers. A lot of thought seems to have gone into the design, and the ultimate result is very satisfying.
This is one of my favorite gamebooks, mainly because of the clever way that each of the towers contains a sort of mini adventure, and how they all fit together in the end.
