Read full description of the books:
I suspect that a lot of people would disagree with my assessment of this book, but I quite like it. It's definitely not well-balanced and you're probably going to have to cheat to finish it, but it's so cool though. An ice fortress full of zombies; (view spoiler)[a nuclear submarine shaped like a fish; the final confrontation with Demonlord Tagazin; a trip to the Plane of Darkness; (hide spoiler)] the Deathlord himself. It's got so much going for it.
And if you've reached this point in the series you're probably used to cheating by now. As much as I do blame Dever (an unavoidable fight with a 60 CS enemy is ludicrous), he'd sort of painted himself into a corner by this point. Depending on which previous books they owned, what dice rolls they'd got, what Dsiciplines they chose and which equipment they'd managed to find a player could have a Combat Skill of anywhere from 10 to 66 by this point.
10 is only if you created your character in the Kai or Magnakai series, rolled a 0, and then skipped straight to this book, and 66 is only if you played every previous book, rerolled your CS in the Grandmaster series (and got a 9) and managed to pick up every CS boosting item you're allowed to keep into the Grand Master series (including the very hard to get Kagonite Chainmail). A more likely range is 25 to 53, but that's still unreasonably large.
Anyway, story's cool, game balance sucks.

Read information about the authorJoe Dever was an award-winning British fantasist and game designer. Originally a musician, Dever became the first British winner of the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Championship of America in 1982.
He created the fictional world of Magnamund as a setting for his Dungeons & Dragons campaigns. In 1984 he released the first book of the Lone Wolf series of young-adult gamebooks, and the series has since sold over 10.2 million copies worldwide. He experienced difficulty with his publishers as the game books market began to contract in 1995, until publication ceased in 1998 before the final four books (numbers 29-32) were released. Since 2003, however, the series has enjoyed a strong revival of interest in France, Italy, and Spain following the re-release of the gamebook series in these countries.
From 1996 onwards, Dever was involved in the production of several successful computer and console games. He also contributed to a Dungeons & Dragons-style role playing game for Lone Wolf published by Mongoose Publishing (UK) in 2004. Currently he is Lead Designer of a Lone Wolf computer game, and he is writing the final books in the Lone Wolf series. No official publication schedule exists for these works.
