Written during the time of the Lone Wolf "choose your own adventure" gamebook craze, this explains how the titular character came by his name and the last of the Kai Lords.

Also a good read if you're planning to get into the upcoming RPG due out in mid/late 2015 and want to know some of the background.

The characters are mostly well written, some bursts of action (although few of them involve Lone Wolf), but this is mainly a book to set events in motion.

This is a very good novel that tells the story of Lone Wolf, from the popular series of gamebooks. It is very well-written. I wish I could get my hands on a copy of this book as well as all of the follow-ups.
Mark
A lackluster attempt at a novelization of a classic gamebook.
David Pierce
A nice little fantasy story to curl up to on a porch .
