Demian's Thoughts:

Some of the mythological creatures that were missed in book 5 are covered here, plus the typical R. G. Austin aliens are present. The most interesting novelty in this book is a series of pages which must be passed by solving math problems. This is an interesting change of pace, but is not unique. Math problems have also been featured in the Fighting Fantasy and Lone Wolf series.

Fireguard's Thoughts:

Creatures of the Dark feels very much like the sequel to Lost in a Strange Land. If you were craving more after finishing that book, this is worth checking out. If you didn't care for that (and vice versa), this isn't something to look for.
