I'm glad to see this story arc come to an end. While it has had some good moments, it hasn't had nearly as much coherence as the previous two, especially as far as integration between the novels and gamebooks is concerned. This set is no exception, with the gamebook and novel being rather jarring in their inability to integrate smoothly. The story isn't completely without redeeming features, however; there are a few moments of humor, and the gamebook uses some inventory management, which is interesting (if pointless, considering that all the items are roughly alike). It's unfortunate that these books don't raise the complexity level of the rules just a little bit; it would make them considerably more exciting. With luck, maybe the next storyline will bring some innovation courtesy of Dave Wolverton....

|Errata:||On page 97, the Knockdown skill is mentioned; this is almost certainly an erroneous reference to the Knockout skill.|
