"Cesaro Cortez, a famed explorer-conquistador, set out three years ago on his last great expedition. His ships never returned to an Orlandrian port and he was feared lost until a mysterious cargo appeared recently in Miramar. The nature of this cargo will put Orlandes in jeopardy, sending you on an epic journey to find Cortez, save the country and face your darkest fear!"

"For those of us who grew up with the Fighting Fantasy books, this is almost like a homecoming. Its a great modern equivalent to the books many of us loved as youngsters, with the same kind of attention to detail and thrilling fantastical touches that made these adventures so enjoyable. A splendidly written interactive fantasy story that will keep you hooked until the very end." - POCKETGAMER (8 out of 10 review)

"...a series of lovingly crafted and extremely well-written interactive fantasy novels. It's surprisingly engrossing stuff, the economically written narrative packing in masses of detail, while rattling out a pacey, involving story." - THE GUARDIAN

"Gamebook Adventures are fun to read not just because the RPG mechanic draws you in and engages you in the story, but also because the stories are good fantasy fiction. The artwork is great and there is a great deal of replayability in the application, especially when you consider the hundreds of choices that can be made and the various difficulties." - WIRED.COM

"After finally making my way through the series newest release, Im somewhat ashamed that Ive waited so long to take the plunge..." - 148APPS

"I've had an absolutely fabulous time playing through them, and highly encourage anyone interested in fantasy novels to check 'em out." - TOUCH ARCADE

I'll be picking this one up shortly, as it looks like a return to form for the series. The fifth book took a sharp and rather strange nosedive in quality halfway through, and the sixth was bland and utterly forgettable, but this one seems reminiscent of the earlier works, particularly Slaves of Rema, which I liked quite a bit.

Glad I checked in before bed. Was just about to shut down and get some sleep. Think I'll just wait another 45 minutes, grab this, then read a bit of it before going to sleep. Thanks Tin Man Games for all the Gamebook Adventures! Just started #6 today, even though I bought it release day. Still have a go back to #1 and grab the last few endings so I feel I've hit 100% on that one, BTW.

Saw it this morning, just bought it this evening as soon as I got home... Just because it's a 40% off I played the demo of the first book, fell in love with it and bought the full version. Three days later, they made a discount in the other books and I got them. Now I've bought this last book... but I'm still playing the first book!!! :P
