User Summary: While staying in an abandoned farm, you, your brother, and your friends decide to try out a new video game designed by one of you. After the game conjures up the spirit of an evil witch, you must save your friends by finding a way of dealing with the spirit.
Guillermo's Thoughts: This horror gamebook tells a good story, but is not very difficult to complete successfully. Other horror entries in this series (most notably The Hands of Pablo Santos) have much better gameplay than this book, while also managing to convey a good horror atmosphere. The Dark Awakening is certainly readable, but it is not among the best Storytrails books.
