Guillermo's Thoughts: I agree with Nomad's review. This is a very simple Arthurian fantasy adventure which is a lot of fun to read, especially if you are a young child. None of the paths are too long, but the writing is atmospheric and some of the choices can be quite challenging for readers in the target age group. This book got me really interested in gamebooks when I first read it as a youngster.

Nomad's Thoughts: This is a fun little adventure for kids and a good addition to this series. The passages are rather short, and it tends to leave the reader wanting more, but considering the age group that it's aiming for, this annoyance is easily overlooked. While there's nothing terribly groundbreaking in Dragons!, it's still a good read and stands out as one of my personal favorite entries despite the flaws inherent with a gamebook of this nature.
