User Summary: You must infiltrate Revolutionary France and smuggle a relative of the Queen of England out of the country before he is executed.
Guillermo's Thoughts: Just as game system gamebooks were not the exclusive province of the British, great pick-a-path books were not only produced by Americans. This historical gamebook is quite entertaining, and the challenge level is high enough. I believe the author could have spent a bit more effort on characterization, though.
