|Countersound's Thoughts:||This was a weird book, but it follows the script of many of the earlier books in this series. For starters, many of the first choices are either correct, or end abruptly. There are only two real storylines in the book, and while both have several choices, they don't really correlate. In fact, they are two different storylines that don't intersect. Overall, not a bad read but nothing great about it.|
|Demian's Thoughts:||This is a rather weak gamebook; the writing is rather poor and the gameplay is even worse. The book is badly paced and there are several annoying "quit and don't get involved" choices which, obviously, lead to uninteresting endings and really serve only as filler.|
I agree with Demian that this a very weak book. I had to check the cover several times to verify that Richard Brightfield actually wrote it and not R. A. Montgomery. Richard Brightfield mostly writes martial arts gamebooks, so maybe this is why this book isn't so good. He's better when he sticks to what he knows.
My first readthrough of the book ended rather abruptly, only four pages in. "You'll never know what they really wanted with you." Those kinds of endings are pure R.A.M.! I think maybe Brightfield was trying out the genre with this book by copying R.A.M.'s style.
