Demian's Thoughts:

This book means well but isn't particularly good. It shares some of the themes of alienation used in Raid on Nightmare Castle, Catherine McGuire's earlier entry in the series, but nothing terribly inspired occurs. For the most part this is a typically ridiculous science fiction gamebook.

Kveto's Thoughts:

I haven't read many of the sci-fi related Endless Quests as the setting doesn't interest me much, so I have little to compare this to. It feels like a fairly standard Hardy Boys style mystery set on an alien planet, not that different from Earth. So if that sounds appealing, you could like it. That's about all I can say.
