User Summary: As Michael, Eric's younger brother, you find yourself trapped in the same strange land as your sibling. You must help him escape from a maze set up by the evil Venger.
Guillermo's Thoughts: (Review based on the Spanish translation.)

Because Eric the Cavalier is such an annoying character, this book makes you play his younger brother instead (though Eric tags along with you no matter which path you take). Curiously, a gamebook in which the reader plays Eric was released in the UK at about the same time as this entry. The British book is unspeakably bad, and sadly this one is not much better. All the paths through The Maze and the Magic Dragon are extremely short and the encounters are uninspired. The book never stops beating the reader on the head with its moral message, making the experience even worse. Frankly, just avoid this one.
