User Summary: Young Jessica sets out to prove women can be just as strong as men by stringing her legendary ancestor's bow, but she gets a little more than she bargained for when she finds herself responsible for stopping an invading frost giant and fire demon.
Fireguard's Thoughts: On the whole, Maiden of Greenwold manages to provide a fairly satisfying adventure. It does a good job of portraying that the heroine is more or less alone against her titanic enemies except for one or two trustworthy souls, especially among her chauvanistic neighbors. Another nice touch was that despite being aimed at adolescent girls, the book isn't as insistent that the reader's character find romance, a problem I had with a couple other Dragontales books. While not one of the stronger gamebooks overall, this is one of the stronger Dragontales books.
