User Summary: Five of your friends have been kidnapped by an evil wizard. With your pet monkey Zetto, you must sneak into the wizard's castle, brave its many dangers and get back out again with your friends.
Fireguard's Thoughts: This book avoids the randomness I felt hindered The Planet of Terror, and manages to feel like many of the evil wizards' castles I've explored in my time. However, it maintains the trial-and-error approach prevalent to this series, where repeated explorations of different options are the only means of finding one's way to victory.
