4.0 out of 5 stars A fun start. December 28, 2011
By para
This is a enjoyable tale that calls back to classic text based games and choose your own adventure novels. The addition of statistics to track makes it more involved than a simple branching book, but it's simpler than its peers that add game mechanics like die rolls (such as the Fighting Fantasy Adventures). Some clever small touches and details give a nice sense of atmosphere and keeps the main character from being completely a cipher.

A little short but more than worth the current price ($0.99).

The end leads directly to the second volume. Looking forward to seeing where the story goes from here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this little book/app! December 10, 2011
Verified Purchase
OK, this is not a normal book, it's actually a Kindle game in book form. It's pretty similar to Choose Your Own Adventure books but there are some key improvements.

First, it's aimed at an older crowd. I imagine most younger folks would enjoy it, but there's some kinda graphic violence so I'm not sure it's something to read to your four-year old before bed. The writing and storyline is accessible and fun, but sophisticated enough to keep older readers interested too. There's even a little humor sprinkled around.

Second, there's a points system that tracks vitals like health, spell power (manna), gold, and morale. Health is the most important because if you run out of that, you're dead. I like the scoring because it gives you something to work for and it allows you to make bad decisions here and there without instantly dying.

Third, it's part of a series (three so far), so it's shaping up to be an epic story. There's an exciting cliffhanger at the end of this one and I can't wait to read the next! Also, you get one of six ranks at the end depending on how well you did. It's fun to play through a few times to try and get a higher rank.

My only issue is that it's a little short, but for 99 cents, I'm holding at five stars. I can safely say this is worth a LOT more than a McDonald's cheeseburger... And I really like those cheeseburgers!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty fun. December 11, 2011
By Man_420

Fun for 99 cents. A short few hour read to finish with a few endings and it leads into the second book that's 99 cents. there is also a third for 99 cents at least when I purchased them. Its the right price for them IMO.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good start June 16, 2012
I really enjoyed this book. The decisions it asks you to make are pretty good. The only drawback is that I was able to obtain money but never able to spend it on anything.

2.0 out of 5 stars Short, standard fantasy fare January 10, 2012
Verified Purchase
This very basic choose your own adventure tale covered standard fantasy fare: wizards, goblins, dark magic, etc. The writing was basic, maybe high school level and the story was quite short- I finished within an hour. I also tried alternate choices but found there was very little original content, all choices led to the same path, only with slightly more or less gold. I wouldn't recommend it, there are some much better choose your own adventure stories out there for the same price, like the amazing Heavy Metal Thunder which I just finished two days ago.

1.0 out of 5 stars It didn't work on my Kindle April 11, 2013
Verified Purchase
I realize the price is cheap but I still expect a newly purchased item to work. I chatted with customer support and after restarting and the program still didn't work, I was asked to deregister my Kindle...which I wasn't going to do. I felt that approach was overkill for an Active Content non-working game when the five other Active Content programs that I got the same day worked just fine. I asked for a return of my money which the representative cheerfully did. I realize that seems like a lot to go through for .99 but if I could get people to pay for a cleverly designed cover that had nothing to it, perhaps not too many people would ask for their money back since the hassle doesn't seem worth it and I could bring in some spending money. Now, perhaps the program will work on your Kindle, then you can leave a real review of the content. If it doesn't work, chat with customer service and get your .99 returned.

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining March 26, 2013
By DaveP
Verified Purchase
This is my first try at an interactive novel. I got fairly deep into it before I died for my first time. Upon restarting, I found that the alternative paths pretty much lead to the same place. The writing sometimes strays out of the genre in a way I find annoying, for instance, after finding some treasure, the text comments "cha-ching!"

Its an amusing distraction, but it aint Zork (Wow! I'm really dating myself there).

A very different way to read a book. Read a few pages and your decision changes the story. Is a game and book in one!
