I remember this being one of my favorite books from the series and I confirm that I loved it. The Danarg, a swamp in the middle of a volcanic crater, is an unique setting with a rather cool atmosphere. I wish it lasted longer but alas it was a very quick read. Typical of the Lone Wolf book series unfortunately.
Some cool and memorable characters, like Paido the Vakeros warrior and Tadia the seer. And I liked the part before the Danarg, too. Reminded me of the city state of issue 6, which I loved.

This one was near impossible on the Hardcore settings of the gamebook player at http://www.projectaon.org/staff/eric/. I thought I was going to have to give it up, but I finally found a way around. Wow! All books in the series free and online in a game-book player here: www.projectaon.org

avvincente avventura di lupo solitario, che affronta il suo viaggio stavolta, insieme ad un mago di nome Paido. il fatto che lupo solitario non sia più solitario in quest' avventura, aggiungere freschezza ai vari libri precedenti. Il viaggio si rivela ricco di insidie, trappole, personaggi interessanti, e tantissime nuove creature di cui non si era mai sentito parlare prima. L'assenza di un importante nemico finale delude un po', ma è bello che la storia finisce con un'interessante cliffhanger

This one annoyed me because it more-or-less requires out-of-book knowledge to make the correct choices, which breaks the immersion for me. Part way through the book there are a couple of seemingly sensible choice that will get you killed instantly or lead to an almost unwinnable combat, and there's no way to know not to pick them unless you've played the book before and know where they lead.

A good continuation of the Lone Wolf story. I have mixed feelings about this one. On the one hand, I like the early part that deals with traversing the swamp and wished it had been longer. The latter parts in the dungeons, there wasn't exactly anything that I would say interesting, although there were a few nice surprises.

Caposaldo della mia infanzia.
In questo capitolo l'ultimo dei Ramas si deve muovere in un ambiente molto pericoloso, nella quale la morte è sempre dietro l'angolo.
L'attività del libro game l'ho sempre ritenuta molto simpatica, ma attualmente i videogiochi hanno soppiantato questo tipo di esperienze.
Proporre, ai giorni nostri, un libro game condurrebbe al flop totale .

this is interesting. a RPG style novella. part of the Lone Wolf series?

looks like Choose your Own Adventure combined with Dungeons and Dragons

checking Wikipedia, it looks like there's a whole series of gamebooks. cool.

This was my least favorite of the series. It is also the one that took the least amount of time to finish.

Une bonne histoire, de l'action, une fin originale, mais il manque un petit quelque chose pour rendre cette aventure vraiment spectaculaire.
