Demian's Thoughts:

I entered Ellen Kushner's final entry in the series with fairly high expectations, considering how much I enjoyed Mystery of the Secret Room. Unfortunately, by comparison, this is a disappointment. It's fast-paced and features a lot of choices, and there are occasional hints of humor, but it doesn't have as much energy and creativity as the author's previous adventure. The King Arthur legend has been thoroughly milked for content in the gamebook realm, and this book doesn't really go anywhere new. In fact, thanks to a large number of abrupt, unsatisfying endings, it frequently goes nowhere at all. You could certainly do worse, but don't go out of your way to track this one down.

Waluigi Freak 99's Thoughts:

This book is a good one. It had plenty of good adventures and enough originality to keep me interested. The plot about the giant and his game stands out as most notable, although the other storylines were almost as good.
