Demian's Thoughts:

After more than ten years, R. A. Montgomery wrote this sequel to what was probably his first gamebook, Journey Under the Sea. The book suffers from the fact that it has no particular objective or plot, and not all of its branches and endings are entirely satisfying, but it is still a respectable adventure full of the implausible but fun science-fantasy concepts that readers have come to expect of the series. In and of itself, the book isn't anything too special, but for fans of this series, and R. A. Montgomery's work in particular, it provides plenty of new and unusual territory to explore and is well worth a read.
